Hernán is a bilingual lawyer, fluent in Spanish and English, who also has a basic understanding of French and Italian. His general litigation practice is enhanced by his knowledge of other countries and cultures.  The focus of his practice is representing (re)insurers in complex disputes around the world, with a particular emphasis on Latin-America, and on complex U.S. losses with significant London reinsurance markets.
