Biographies:

Who's Who Legal Central America - Dispute Resolution

Jorge has been a partner at Arias since 1998. He is the head of the corporate, energy and telecommunications department in the Guatemalan office. He specialises in advising corporations on mergers and acquisitions and corporate and commercial matters. He has ample experience in regulated industries such as energy, oil and gas, telecommunications and project finance. He is the former head of the dispute resolution practice in Guatemala, but he continues to be involved closely with such practice within the firm.

Jorge Luis has a juris doctor degree from Universidad Francisco Marroquín University, Guatemala (1998) and is authorised as a practising attorney and notary public by the Supreme Court of Justice of Guatemala. He attended the programme of negotiation for lawyers (PIL) at Harvard Law School, Cambridge in 2003. He obtained his LLM with honours from the Northwestern University School of Law (Chicago, 2009) and also obtained a certificate in business administration at the Instituto de Empresa (Madrid, 2009).

He taught mergers and acquisitions at the Francisco Marroquín University Business School, as part of the LLM in finance, and was also director of the school’s continuous education seminars (2010-2012). He is an associate professor in the Faculty of Law at Francisco Marroquín University; a member of the advisory committee of the Faculty of Law at Universidad del Istmo; and a guest speaker for the graduate studies programme of updated contemporary mercantile law, offered by Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala, the Institute of Mercantile Law and the Colegio de Abogados y Notarios de Guatemala. He was named global ambassador in Guatemala for Northwestern University in April 2015.

WWL says: Jorge Arenales de la Roca stands out for his dispute resolution work, with particular experience handling complex litigation and arbitration.
