Global law firm White & Case LLP has grown its leading International Arbitration Practice with the addition of a new partner, Jorge Mattamouros, a New York and Portugal qualified lawyer joining the Firm's Houston office. Mattamouros will play an important role in the Firm's international arbitration matters in the Latin America and Lusophone regions.
"Jorge has a successful track record advising on multijurisdictional, high-stakes disputes around the world," said Paul Friedland, White & Case's Global Head of International Arbitration.
Mattamouros has experience representing clients across approximately 25 jurisdictions in commercial arbitration, investor-state disputes, and arbitration-related litigation. He brings sector experience to the Firm’s Oil & Gas, Construction and Power Industry Groups, as well as Portuguese fluency and particular expertise with disputes in Portuguese-speaking markets such as Brazil and Angola. He also handles disputes in Spanish.
Mattamouros comes to White & Case from King & Spalding, where he worked as a partner in their International Arbitration practice.
"White & Case has built truly global disputes capabilities as a key component of our 2020 growth strategy," said Jonathan Hamilton, Head of White & Case's Latin American Arbitration Practice. "Jorge's arrival further strengthens the Lusophone and Portuguese-language capacity of our International Arbitration Practice."
Mattamouros is the Firm's first International Arbitration partner in Houston, joining a growing team of lawyers specializing in global oil & gas, power and energy matters.
