Eduardo focuses his practice on international arbitration. He has experience assisting clients in investment disputes between companies and Latin American governments, including a gold mining company against El Salvador in an ICSID arbitration (Pac Rim v. El Salvador) and U.S. investors against the Dominican Republic in a CAFTA-DR arbitration (Ballantine v. Dominican Republic). He also has experience assisting clients in evaluating the implications of international trade and investment agreements and assisting them in all aspects of negotiations with governments.

In his trade practice, Eduardo has experience assisting clients on U.S. economic sanctions, anti-money laundering (AML) laws and regulations, export controls, customs, regulatory, and investment-related issues in Latin American countries. He also works closely with consultants of the firm’s affiliate, C&M International, providing assistance on international trade developments, investment, and regulatory policy.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Eduardo was an associate in the litigation group of a leading Venezuelan firm, where he advised and represented clients in all contexts of litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

Eduardo earned his law degree from Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Caracas, Venezuela, and his LL.M. in international business and economic law with a certificate in international arbitration and dispute resolution from Georgetown University Law Center.

Eduardo is a native Spanish speaker and is fluent in English.
