Top arbitration lawyer returns to Clifford Chance in DC

Ignacio Suarez Anzorena has returned to Clifford Chance in Washington, DC after three years as a partner with Chadbourne & Parke LLP.

Suarez Anzorena spent five years with the magic circle firm as special counsel, before leaving to join Chadbourne in 2009.

“We are very pleased to welcome Ignacio back to the firm,” says David DiBari, head of dispute resolution in the Americas. “Clifford Chance is involved in a large number arbitrations relating to South America, where Ignacio has an outstanding reputation in the market.”

Audley Sheppard, London based head of international arbitration, says: “I look forward to working with Ignacio again. His experience and expertise in investment treaty and ICSID will be a major benefit to our clients.”

Suarez Anzorena has represented companies, investors and governments in Europe, South America and the US. At Chadbourne, he advised Spanish infrastructure group Abertis in an UNCITRAL claim against Bolivia. And in another case against Bolivia, he helped a German-Peruvian oil consortium settle its US$30 million claim over the nationalisation of a fuel storage and pipeline company.

Before moving to private practice, Suarez Anzorena worked for Argentina's Treasury Attorney General’s Office in Buenos Aires.

Oliver Armas, head of international arbitration at Chadbourne & Parke, says: “We wish our good friend Ignacio all the best. He’s a very talented lawyer, so we trust his return to Clifford Chance will be successful.”

Suarez Anzorena is listed in The International Who’s Who of Commercial Arbitration.
