Brigard Urrutia‘s sizeable 20-strong team is led by practice head Irma Rivera, who has extensive experience both as party counsel in arbitration proceedings and as well as numerous appointments as both a domestic and international arbitrator. The team is particularly active -and experienced- in disputes involving strategic sectors such as oil and gas, public services, transport and power infrastructure. Associate director Felipe Mutis is also a key member of the team, which was reinforced with the October-2019 hire of experienced senior associate Ana Carolina Abreo (whose past experience includes time at Vinson & Elkins LLP’s IDR & Arbitration practice group), following the departures of Luis Alfredo Barragán (to Asteri Abogados) and senior associate Natalia Ángel, in August and September 2019, respectively.
