Our firm has a widely recognized practice in national and international arbitration. We have acted in several arbitration proceedings, ad-hoc and under the rules of the Santiago Chamber of Commerce (CAM), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), and the United Nations Commission on Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
Partners of our firm are regularly appointed as arbitrators by the ICC, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) and the Lima Chamber of Commerce, among other institutions. Several members of our firm are registered in the corps of arbitrators of the Santiago Chamber of Commerce.
A large number of the arbitration proceedings in which we participate have their seat abroad and are conducted fully in English. Members of our arbitration team are also fluent in French, German and Portuguese.
Our arbitration practice is mainly focused on complex disputes regarding construction, energy, mining, shareholders’ agreements, financial services, insurance, distribution, and franchising. We also advise clients in investment disputes with sovereign states.
Our arbitration team interacts regularly with the other teams of the firm, assisting our clients in the pre-dispute stages, developing strategies to avoid controversies, preparing for potential claims and responses, and analyzing alternative resolution mechanisms.
Additionally, we have vast experience representing clients before Chilean courts in matters related to arbitration, such as interim measures, enforcement of arbitral awards and annulment proceedings.
Our firm is the only Chilean firm included in all the editions of GAR 100, a list prepared by Global Arbitration Report with the most important arbitration practices in the world.
