He has handled cases for governments as well as private clients/investors in a variety of industries, including oil and gas (upstream and midstream), mining, telecommunications, auto-parts distribution, airport management/construction, civil engineering, shareholder and post-M&A purchase price adjustment disputes, retail and fashion design. In addition, he has lectured on international commercial and investment arbitration in Europe and Latin America.
