Ms. Botero has significant expertise in drafting and negotiating project development, financing, acquisition, divestiture and commercial agreements, including joint venture, facility, service, operating, construction, share and asset purchase, supply, and confidentiality agreements, with emphasis in the highly complex oil and gas industry.
Her language skills and training in both civil and common law allow her to address complex multijurisdictional issues.
Ms. Botero represents sovereign states and state entities in multi-million-dollar international arbitration proceedings instigated by foreign investors questioning the validity of local regulations and governmental actions, under bilateral investment treaties and international law. She also represents clients in complex international commercial disputes.
Ms. Botero has authored several articles on investor-state arbitration and has been a guest speaker at multiple arbitration conferences.
Ms. Botero spearheaded the development of a continuing legal education (CLE) seminar titled “Implicit Bias in the Legal Profession,” which explores unconscious biases and how they impact legal practice, and gives participants concrete response techniques to help address them. This complimentary training and diversity initiative satisfies the New York State CLE Board’s one-credit hour requirement in the category of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.
Prior to joining the firm, she worked for the Inter-American Development Bank, where she advised trade ministries across Latin America on export promotion and investment attraction strategies and policies.
