Lawyer Rankings

Argentina > Dispute resolution

The ‘experienced and thorough’ group at Bomchil scores highly for its ‘strong ability in both legal and business matters’. The practice, which brings to bear an impressive track record in administrative and public law matters, is best known for its first-class arbitration expertise but it also handles commercial litigation and class action cases. Key arbitration contact María Inés Corrá ‘goes above and beyond’ and successfully represented Wintershall Energía in a high-value claim brought by a Chilean gas distributor against a consortium of Argentine producers relating to export restrictions. Corrá is also advising Minera Los Pelambres — a subsidiary of Antofagasta Minerals —on two politically sensitive disputes. Federico Campolieti is also recommended for complex arbitration matters. Managing partner Javier Petrantonio heads the litigation department and paired up with recently promoted partner Martín Torres Girotti to represent Carrefour in four large claims stemming from its acquisition of Argentine supermarket chains. The team has also recently undertaken work for PepsiCo, Peugeot Citroën Argentina and Siemens. In a significant blow to the firm, high-profile name Guido Tawil left to become an independent arbitrator. However, seasoned specialist Rafael Manóvil continues to provide support as of counsel.
