Carlos Alvarado has dedicated his entire career to dispute resolution, particularly international arbitration, commercial litigation, and mediation. He has broad experience with complex commercial disputes before national courts and arbitral tribunals as well as on court proceedings seeking the recognition, enforcement, or annulment of arbitration awards. Today, he continues to follow his passion: finding the best strategies and solutions for client disputes.

After obtaining his law degree in 2011, Carlos joined the International Litigation and Arbitration team at Barrera, Siqueiros y Torres Landa (now Hogan Lovells BSTL). He now focuses his practice on energy disputes and has conducted academic research in this sector.

While in law school, Carlos interned in a boutique litigation firm for four years. He's taken pen in hand to author academic articles that were published in legal compilations. He's also been a successful contender in Moot Mexico – the international contest of commercial arbitration – and participated as an arbitrator in the Willem C.
