Foley Hoag Partner Clara Brillembourg Recognized by Latinvex as a Top Female Lawyer Specializing in Latin America

June 3, 2019

Foley Hoag LLP partner Clara Brillembourg was recently named to Latin America's Top 30 Female Lawyers in Arbitration & Litigation and Top 100 Female Lawyers (2019) by Latinvex, a publisher of daily news and weekly analysis on Latin American business. This is the third year in which she has received this distinction.

Each year, Latinvex selects the top 100 international female lawyers in Latin America by areas of specialty and expertise. The criteria for selection includes a combination of factors, including regional and local prominence, law firm prominence, and awards and recognition from sources such as Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.

Latinvex lauded Brillembourg’s work successfully representing Uruguay in an ICSID arbitration brought by Italba Corporation concerning regulating a telecommunications license, in which Uruguay not only achieved a victory based on lack of jurisdiction, but also secured an order for the claimant to pay its full legal fees and costs. She was also praised for the “headline-grabbing victory” for Uruguay against Philip Morris at ICSID in 2016, as well as her representation of States before the International Court of Justice and International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea.

Brillembourg is a member of Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration practice, where she specializes in advising sovereign States in international disputes with other States, foreign investors and U.S. plaintiffs.
