Julián SolorzaDLA Piper Martinez Beltrán

Held up by sources as an ‘excellent interdisciplinary firm‘, DLA Piper Martinez Beltrán fields a diverse dispute resolution practice which packs a punch in all key contentious areas. Demonstrating strength in civil and commercial cases, M&A disputes, bankruptcy proceedings and insurance litigation, the comprehensive group draws upon the experience of several heavy-hitting litigators. Most notably, managing partner Camilo Martínez maintains a broad all-round disputes practice, with a strong recent record in energy and infrastructure matters; he paired up with Sergio Rojas (who was elevated to the partnership in January 2022) to advise Integral and Consorcio Generacion Ituango in a lawsuit initiated by Empresas Públicas de Medellín in relation to the damages sustained as a result of flooding due to the blocking of a tunnel. José Miguel Mendoza leads on shareholder dispute resolution, corporate crisis management and D&O litigation; he recently represented Maersk subsidiary APM Terminals on the design and execution of a corporate governance defence strategy concerning an activist shareholder campaign. Other senior names include bankruptcy and restructuring specialist Nicolás Polanía; and Julian Solorza, who was promoted to partner in January 2022 and focuses on administrative, civil, commercial and public litigation. The group is further supported by directors Ricardo Alarcón (arbitration) and Juan Pablo Amaya (corporate litigation), as well as associates Sergio Londoño and María José Figueroa (both litigation and corporate governance).
