Federico Torrealba - Facio & Cañas

Within: Dispute resolution

Facio & Cañas’ dispute resolution department is jointly led by Federico Torrealba and senior figure, Rodrigo Oreamuno, who is today best known for his arbitral appointments and involvement in cross-border investment treaty arbitrations. The seven-strong team handles a broad range of contentious matters, from civil and commercial disputes, to administrative and intellectual property litigation, as well as the recovery of damages. In one recent highlight, Oreamuno represented Chiquita in a $400m lawsuit brought by 525 plantation workers against the client (along with Shell Oil, Dow Chemical and Del Monte), alleging exposure to harmful chemicals and associated health issues. Plaintiff-side work includes advising Productos de Concreto in an administrative tax dispute.
