Shook's international dispute resolution team looks forward very much to the benefit of Carlos's leadership and rich arbitration experience both commercially and in investor-state disputes," said John Barkett, who practices international arbitration from Shook's Miami office.

"I'm excited to chair and develop Shook's Global Arbitration Practice Group with their impressive client base and the personal and professional relationships that I've developed throughout Latin America and Europe during the last three decades," said Concepción. "Shook's reputation as an elite trial and disputes firm, together with their commitment to expand this practice area was the opportunity that attracted me to this tremendous firm."

Shook Miami Partners William Geraghty and Hildy Sastre manage the Miami office. Shook is known globally for its strength in commercial litigation, and mediation and arbitration for health, science and technology companies.
