May 27, 2020

Foley Hoag LLP partners Paul Reichler and Kenneth Juan Figueroa were recognized among Latin America's top 100 lawyers in arbitration and litigation for 2020 by Latinvex, an online publisher of daily news and weekly analysis on Latin American business.

Each year, the editorial staff of Latinvex selects the top attorneys from international law firms that represent Latin American clients. The publication ranked both attorneys among the top lawyers in the Arbitration & Litigation category. 

Reichler is Co-Chair of Foley Hoag’s International Litigation and Arbitration Department. He has over three decades of experience representing Sovereign States in disputes with other States, and with foreign investors. Latinvex highlighted his victory for Uruguay against Philip Morris at the ICSID, as well as his victory for Nicaragua in a dispute with Costa Rica over maritime borders.

Figueroa has substantial experience in international arbitration matters, with a particular focus in Latin America. He represents States, state-owned entities, and private parties from various countries in the region in Investor-State matters, commercial and construction arbitration, and litigation. Latinvex emphasized his work representing Venezuela in several ICSID cases, and his representation of the Republic of Peru in a contract-based arbitration at ICSID concerning the construction of a metro line in Lima.

Latinvex recently recognized Foley Hoag as a top international law firm in Latin America. Its 2020 rankings placed the firm at 2nd in litigation, 4th in arbitration and 16th overall.
