Paolo Di Rosa - Arnold & Porter

Within: International arbitration

Arnold & Porter stands out in investor-state arbitration representing sovereign states; the Dominican Republic, Chile, Peru and Panama are on its impressive client list. In 2017, Washington DC-based Paolo Di Rosa, together with the London-based Patricio Grané Labat and Dmitri Evseev, represented the Republic of Costa Rica in response to an investment arbitration filed by Infinito Gold, seeking $321m in connection with the revocation of exploration permits and an exploitation concession for a gold mine. Labat is acting for the Republic of Peru, as respondent, in an investment arbitration initiated by Odebrecht Latinvest and Odebrecht Latin Finance, relating to a multimillion-dollar dispute in the gas transportation sector. The team also handles commercial arbitration, and recently advised on a transport-related ICC contractual case in Colombia. Within the 15-partner team, Whitney Debevoise, Gaela Gehring Flores and recently promoted partner Mallory Silberman are also names to note.

  • The role of arbitrators in EU antitrust law

    In May 2014, it will be ten years since Regulation No 1/2003 entered into force. When the legislator of the European Union adopted this Regulation on 16 December 2002, its main objective was to decentralise the enforcement of the two main provisions of EU antitrust law, Articles 81 and 82 of the Treaty establishing the European Community (now Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)). Where do the arbitrators fit in this picture?‚Ä©
