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 litigation, 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.
He has also 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 initial stage.
Before joining DLA Piper Martínez Beltrán, Sergio was an associate at two important local firms. He was also an adviser to the President 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 personal injury compensation bill.
