Laura França Pereira recently spoke at a conference to discuss the “UNCITRAL Code of Conduct for Judges in International Investment Dispute Resolution”, which was discussed within the scope of UNCITRAL Working Group III on Investor-State Dispute Settlement Reform. The event was organised by the Investment Arbitration Study Group of the Brazilian Arbitration Committee (CBAr).

The conference took place on Wednesday 29 November 2023 and was restricted to members of the Brazilian Arbitration Committee.


Laura, an associate in the Madrid office, specialises in international commercial and investor-State arbitration. She has experience acting in complex and high-value disputes across a range of sectors, including banking and finance, energy, oil and gas, infrastructure, and retail. Laura has acted in proceedings under a number of arbitration rules, including ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, and AAA-ICDR.

Laura also maintains an active pro bono practice focused on the defence of human rights. She is representing the owners of a media group against a Latin American State in a claim filed before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights arising from alleged violations of the American Convention on Human Rights in relation to, inter alia, freedom of expression and the right to property. She also worked with REDRESS on a pro bono project promoting balanced gender representation in UN human rights organs and mechanisms.
