Sergio is a Partner in the Insurance and Reinsurance, Damages and Crisis Management practices.
He has represented the interests of national and international companies in contractual and non-contractual liability disputes, both in the ordinary jurisdiction, as well as in the contentious-administrative, arbitration and foreign courts, in particularly complex matters due to their amount or the quality of the parties. Likewise, he has focused on strategic litigation in Colombia and with cross-border implications, in matters of commercial intermediation, insurance, large infrastructure claims, compliance and financial risks.
As part of the crisis management practice, he has advised clients in matters of special media or patrimonial exposure, leading interdisciplinary teams to mitigate the adverse consequences of a crisis, from its early stage.
Before joining DLA Piper Martínez Beltrán, Sergio worked as an associate of two important local firms. He was also an advisor to the Presidency of the International Association of Insurance Law (AIDA).
He is a university professor, has published several books related to tort law in Colombia and Spain and coordinated the drafting committee of the Bill for the compensation of personal injuries.
