His practice encompasses investor-state, public works, and commercial arbitration, civil and commercial litigation, bankruptcy and restructuring, constitutional litigation and administrative proceedings.

    Rodrigo has participated in many high-stakes international arbitrations under the rules of the leading arbitral institutions (ICC, LCIA, ICSID, ICDR, CAM, CANACO), often involving complex contractual arrangements, parallel litigation, and enforcement proceedings in several jurisdictions. In litigation, he has several years of experience appearing before Mexican courts, at both the local and federal level, in various types of litigation proceedings, particularly in commercial law-related disputes across many sectors, including energy, infrastructure, oil and gas, consumer goods, banking and finance, automotive, and pharmaceutical. He has thorough experience in obtaining and challenging interim measures, as well as enforcing foreign judgments and arbitral awards. In his bankruptcy and restructuring practice, he has participated in many complex bankruptcy proceedings, as well as in cross-border insolvency proceedings, advising both creditors and debtors. He has also been involved in pro bono cases representing vulnerable immigrant groups, refugees, and asylum seekers, as well as in cases involving discrimination. Due to his international work experience and dual legal training in Mexico and the US, Rodrigo has a skill set and legal perspective uniquely well-suited to serve the needs of our clients.
