He has acted in more than twenty-five arbitrations in the energy (including oil & gas), mining, telecommunications, arms, transport, real-estate and infrastructure construction sectors, among others.  These were conducted under ICSID, UNCITRAL, ICC, LCIA and CIAC rules, among others, and the applicable laws, both substantively and procedurally, originated from common law and civil law traditions. Many of the arbitrations in which he has been involved have included states or state entities.
