Though not yet a major player in the field of international arbitration, Greenberg Traurig is becoming increasingly well known for its Latin American work.
It has an extensive network across that region including a strong footprint in the Dominican Republic. The presence of Regina Vargo, the chief US negotiator of the DR-CAFTA free-trade agreement, places the firm at the forefront of emerging case law in this area. In this regard, it is currently acting for a US rail company in the first DR-CAFTA claim to be heard at ICSID. In what is being seen as a test case, Guatemala has repeatedly failed in its attempts to challenge the tribunal’s jurisdiction. Hugh Hackney leads the arbitration group from Dallas.
