I represent sovereign States and help protect their interests in high-stakes inter-State disputes and international investment arbitration cases.
Alejandra Torres Camprubí exclusively represents sovereign States in public international law and international investment arbitration cases before the world’s principal dispute resolution bodies. She is admitted to practice in the Madrid Bar as well as the Paris Bar as an EU lawyer.
Alejandra represents sovereign States and State-owned entities, both in inter-State cases before the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (in border disputes and cases involving violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law), and in arbitration proceedings administered by the International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (in matters relating to the energy and aeronautical industries).
From a research perspective, her areas of expertise include international environmental law, with a particular focus on climate change law and policy, and the interaction of this field with the international law of the sea and the law on statehood. Alejandra acted as legal counsel in the United Nations climate change negotiations and has recently been a post-doctoral research fellow at the Fridtjof Nansen Institute in Oslo, as part of an international and interdisciplinary project on the legal consequences of the Anthropocene for International Law.
She has published in matters relating to loss of statehood due to sea-level rise, climate change and international security, and fairness in the international regime on climate change and has lectured on these topics in several universities and international organizations. She is also an active member of the ILA Committee on International Law and Sea-Level Rise.
