"Carlos Rodriguez has particular experience in international commercial and investment arbitration cases before arbitral institutions, including ICC and the ICSID."

The Legal500

In a jurisdiction heavily impacted by constant legal and regulatory reforms, Carlos Rodríguez constantly works to advise clients on the most novel aspects of the law.

Carlos is immersed in the complex legal system that impacts his clients' businesses, with a keen view on matters involving both private and public law.

Carlos's commitment to resolving disputes has nurtured his practice as a litigator, particularly in the area of alternative dispute resolution. In this field, he has represented clients in major complex international arbitration disputes - both commercial and investment - before the world's most prominent arbitration institutions.

His passion for dispute resolution has transcended to other areas of interest and, in this sense, Carlos also strives to educate Venezuelan law students in all matters related to alternative dispute mechanisms.

Carlos began his career during law school, working as a paralegal in the corporate department of a leading Caracas law firm. Since then, his practice covers all legal aspects regarding companies. After law school, Carlos pursued LL.M. studies at Stockholm University, widening his comprehension as a dispute resolution lawyer and his view of the global legal community.
