Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Maria Eugenia Ramirez is passionate about international law. In 2002, she joined our newly opened Miami office, where Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells) was seeking bilingual lawyers to establish an international arbitration practice. Maria Eugenia helped create and develop the practice, which over the years has grown exponentially not just in Miami but around the world.
Today, Maria Eugenia still focuses her practice on international arbitration, with an emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean. She has represented clients from El Salvador, Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, Argentina, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico with respect to contract, construction, and telecommunications disputes. She handles international arbitration matters in both English and Spanish before the International Centre for Dispute Resolution of the American Arbitration Association (ICDR), the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
