Foley Hoag Attorney Analía González to Participate in Panel Discussion on Umbrella Clauses

February 28, 2017

Foley Hoag LLP international associate Analía González will take part in a panel discussion on umbrella clauses as part of a conference organized by the Mexican Arbitration Center (CAM) and the Mexican Arbitration and Mediation Center (CANACO). The event will take place on Thursday, March 2, 2017 in Mexico City.

González and her fellow panelist will present “Umbrella Clause: Limits, Scope and Current Situation,” and offer insight into the varied interpretations of umbrella clauses and their challenges in international arbitration. In particular, González will provide the views of a counsel on the use of this clause in investor-State arbitration.

As a member of Foley Hoag's International Litigation and Arbitration Department, González represents clients before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ), and in ad hoc arbitrations under the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), in cases concerning the environment, natural resources, and public health, among others.

In jointly organizing this conference, the CAM and CANACO hope to expand the efforts of their existing "Youth Forum in Arbitration" programming, which focuses on the study and practice of arbitration in Mexico.
