  • Munia is an associate of Von Wobeser y Sierra. She focuses her practice on both international commercial and investment arbitration, including complex cross-border energy and construction disputes.


    She also advises foreign investors on their rights under applicable Investment Treaties and Free Trade Agreements. She holds an LLM (Dean’s List and Highest Honors) from Georgetown Law and a Masters in International Economic Law (Cum Laude) from Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. She is currently pursuing her Doctorate in international investment law from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, focusing her research on quantum determination of renewable energy disputes.

    Prior to joining the firm, she was trained in international arbitration in Washington DC and Paris law firms where she worked on World Bank ICSID and UNCITRAL proceedings. She was Research Assistant at Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas on the French Ministry of Justice Project “the Impact of International Investment Agreements on Foreign Direct Investment Flows”. Munia has also gained experience in multilateral diplomacy as an Adviser to the European Union Delegation to the United Nations in New York and as a trainee at the Spanish Permanent Representation to the European Union in Brussels.

    Munia is not yet admitted to practice before the Mexican Federal or State Courts and therefore she participates exclusively in the firm’s arbitration matters.
