Suescún Abogados

Suescún Abogados, a leading firm for demanding and sophisticated domestic and international arbitration proceedings offers an ‘excellent’ service ‘both in opportunity and in strategy, experience, knowledge and closeness’. The boutique successfully represented Carbones del Cerrejón in an ICC international arbitration, against a Spanish-Colombian consortium (Ferrovial Agroman and Sainc Ingenieros), related to the construction of marine works and structures. The tribunal dismissed all claims brought by the consortium ($60m) and awarded all claims and damages sought by Cerrejón ($40m). Jorge Suescún, who has ‘exceptional experience and knowledge’, leads the team where Felipe Suescún, also recommended, is a key name. The firm is also acting for two Goldman Sachs subsidiaries in a multi-party international ICC arbitration relating to the transportation of coal via a railway network.
