Latin America: International firms > International arbitration

Under the leadership of practice coordinators Gabriel Bottini (an experienced arbitrator) in Madrid and Fernando Aguilar de Carvalho in Lisbon, the international arbitration practice at Uría Menéndez has made steady progress, establishing itself as an independent department (separate from litigation, within the firm) over the course of the last year. Undertaking both commercial arbitration and investor-state disputes, the group has strong experience in the construction, agriculture and utilities sectors. Current matters include advising a consortium on a dispute arising from the construction of a tramway line in Ecuador and acting for the Dominican Republic in a PCA arbitration regarding state measures that resulted in an expropriation and consequent damages claims. However, Miguel Virgós left to establish his own eponymous boutique in February 2020.
