Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global International Arbitration Practice with the arrival of Silvia Marchili as a partner who will focus on the Houston market and be based in due course in Miami.
"Silvia is a dynamic lawyer with strong client relationships and an impressive track record advising on high-stakes international arbitration disputes," said Paul Friedland, White & Case's Global Head of International Arbitration.
Marchili's practice focuses on complex international arbitrations involving investment and commercial claims. An Argentine with more than a decade of experience based in the US, she brings with her extensive experience in international arbitration and litigation involving Latin America, including Spanish-language fluency.
"Our Latin American Arbitration Practice is growing from a position of great strength across offices with a strong focus on the region," said Jonathan Hamilton, Head of White & Case's Latin American Arbitration Practice. "Silvia's arrival complements and strengthens the market-leading Spanish-language capacity of our Practice."
Marchili has expertise across a variety of sectors including oil & gas, power and construction. She joins White & Case from King & Spalding, where she worked as a partner in its international arbitration practice.
"White & Case is a leading law firm for international arbitration, and the addition of Silvia reinforces our commitment to having a top-tier practice across the Americas," said Jason Zakia, White & Case's Head of Americas Disputes. "Her experience will add great depth to our practice and add real value for our clients."
