“Deep knowledge of the arbitration process”
Who's Who Legal
Adell & Merizalde is an international law firm dedicated to providing alternative dispute resolution services in Latin America. Our members have accumulated over 30 years' experience and have been involved in more than 200 arbitrations in a wide array of industries, such as construction, oil & gas, energy, telecommunications, mining, and pharma, in commercial and investment cases.
Our team is led by experienced practitioners that have worked in major jurisdictions such as Dubai, Paris or Washington D.C., in globally recognized law firms, and intervened in the most important arbitral seats (e.g. Geneva, London, New York, Paris, Santiago, Mexico City). With offices in Colombia, Dominican Republic and Panama*, we bring that breadth and depth of experience directly to the region, working closer and directly with our clients.
Operating in an arbitration focused structure ensures our work is conducted in an environment free of conflicts of interest, whether acting as counsel or as arbitrator, with the flexibility to adapt our billing arrangements to the specific needs of our clients and the region. Our strategic geographical location directly connects us with the political, legal, and social reality of the region, allowing us to better understand and address the specific sensibilities of our clients operating in Latin America.
