Who's Who Legal Mediation

Diego Faleck is the founding partner of Faleck & Associados, the first dispute resolution firm fully specialised in mediation, settlement counsel and dispute systems design in Brazil, with a unique track record in complex business mediation and dispute systems design for major national disasters. He received his LLM degree from Harvard Law School and his Phd degree from the University of São Paulo and served as Interim Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Secretariat of Economic Law of the Ministry of Justice in Brazil, and commissioner at the National Commission of Private Insurance of the Ministry of Finance.

He has successfully mediated a wide range of national and international commercial, energy, ports and construction cases and partnership disputes, ad hoc and institutional, including ICC ADR and complex international multi-party high value reinsurance cases.

Most notably, he was responsible for designing and implementing successful compensation programs with the use of mediation for the accidents with flights TAM 3054 (2007), Air France 447 (2009) and the largest environmental disaster in the history of Brazil, for compensation of over 15,000 families for general damages and 450,000 beneficiaries for specific moral damages (ongoing). He is serving as the chief mediator in the project and currently supervises a staff of 50 full-time mediators.

Mr Faleck is a member of the panel of distinguished neutrals of the CPR Institute and other prestigious rosters of mediators in Brazil. He has been featured as a prominent dispute systems designer in Harvard Professors’ Frank Sander and Robert Bordone (et al) publication Designing Systems and Processes (Wolters Kluwer, 2013, appendix one).

WWL says: Diego Faleck is highly regarded throughout the market as “among the best coaches and mediators in Brazil".
