He regularly represents companies and states in commercial and investment arbitrations in complex disputes arising from different economic sectors and industries, having acted as counsel before the major international arbitration institutions such as the ICC, LCIA, ICSID, ICDR, SIAC, among others, and in ad hoc arbitrations under the UNCITRAL Rules.

Furthermore, he was a reporter for the study Legal Instruments and Practice of Arbitration in the EU, published by the European Parliament in 2014.
