Julián SolorzaDLA Piper Martinez Beltrán

DLA Piper Martinez Beltrán’s dispute resolution group strikes the right note with sources for its ‘strong focus on service’. The multidisciplinary practice handles a broad range of contentious matters, with notable activity in civil and commercial litigation, administrative proceedings and constitutional actions, among others. Key contacts include managing partner Camilo Martínez, whose litigation expertise is supplemented by his complementary strength in corporate and finance transactions. Martínez recently paired up with Julian Solorza, who advises on all aspects of dispute resolution, to represent Club El Nogal in an action brought by a former club member, who was banned from the club for five years by its board of directors. Martínez and Solorza co-head the department together with insurance and reinsurance specialist Sergio Rojas and José Miguel Mendoza, who specialises in corporate conflicts, and energy and natural resources. Other senior names include Nicolás Polanía, who advises on arbitration, litigation and corporate law matters; and Ricardo Alarcón, who is the associate director of the arbitration team. At associate level, seniors Sergio Londoño and Juan Pablo Amaya are both noted for their emphasis on corporate litigation. Intermediate associate María José Figueroa left in July 2022 to study abroad. Since publication, both Londoño and Amaya have been raised to the partnership – effective as of February 2024.
