Compass Lexecon experts from three continents were recognized in an annual survey of top international commercial arbitration experts conducted by Who’s Who Legal. The ranking, which includes 89 of the world’s most highly regarded arbitration damages and valuation practitioners, is published every year and is based on a survey of top law firms as well as independent lawyers.

Compass Lexecon experts recognized this year included Manuel Abdala, Santiago Dellepiane, Joseph Kalt, Jorge Padilla, Marcelo Schoeters, Pablo Spiller, and Sebastian Zuccon.

The publication highlighted Joseph Kalt as a “world-class expert in competition economics”, Pablo Spiller as “untouchable on cross-examinations”, it praised Manuel Abdala’s “wealth of experience” and also recognized Jorge Padilla as a top expert in Europe. These four experts were in prior Who’s Who rankings. Three Compass Lexecon were included for the first time: Santiago Dellepiane in New York, and Marcelo Schoeters and Sebastian Zuccon in Buenos Aires. Schoeters and Zuccon are the only two experts included in the Who’s Who survey for all of South America.
