The late Miguel I. Estrada Sámano’s remarkable career was celebrated in a special memorial article published by La Barra, the Magazine of the Mexican Bar Association. Mr. Estrada Sámano, former President of the Mexican Bar Association and the International Association of Lawyers (UIA) as well as counsel at Curtis, passed away on April 8.
The article, “Miguel I. Estrada Sámano: A life of independent practice with social purpose,” focuses on the pioneering spirit and achievements of Mr. Estrada Sámano in various fields of law. It was written by Mexico City partner Antonio Prida.
He became one of the first lawyers in Mexico, as part of a group known as the “Apostles of Arbitration in Mexico” to promote in his country the benefits of arbitration as an effective mechanism of dispute resolution.
Mr. Estrada Sámano became the first Mexican designated as sole arbitrator in an arbitration before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). He served as the first Ibero-American Vice President of the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC, a position that he held for eight years, and became president of the Academy of Arbitration and International Trade (ADACI), which operated under the auspices of the Mexican Bar Association.
Mr. Estrada Sámano also played a major role in human rights initiatives as a co-founder of the Mexican Commission of Human Rights.
The complete article is available in English or Spanish.
