May 14, 2024

BRG today announced the further expansion of its international arbitration and cross-border disputes team with the appointment of Pablo T. Spiller, one of the world’s leading experts in the field.

Prof. Spiller joins BRG’s team of financial economists led by International Arbitration practice co-chairs and Managing Directors Daniela Bambaci and Santiago Dellepiane. He also rejoins his former colleague Dr. Manuel A. Abdala, who joined BRG last month.

The Jeffrey A. Jacobs Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Business and Technology at the Haas School of Business, University of California (UC), Berkeley, Prof. Spiller joins BRG as a managing director in its New York office. His consulting and expert testimony experience extends to over 180 litigation and international arbitration cases involving contractual and treaty disputes, in which he has offered opinions on damages, economic interpretation of contracts and regulatory issues.

Prof. Spiller said: “I am excited to be launching this next stage of my consulting career at BRG in the company of my former colleagues Daniela, Santiago and Manuel. Daniela and Santiago have established one of the most dynamic and entrepreneurial expert groups in the field of international arbitration. I relish the opportunity to merge our respective capabilities for the benefit of our current and future clients.”

Bambaci said: “Welcoming Pablo to BRG cements our position as one of the world’s foremost International Arbitration practices, and we are delighted to have him on board. Our continued growth ensures our clients can access an unrivalled bench of testifying experts and the skills and talent of our global team of professionals.”

Dellepiane added: “Our clients come to us to help with their most significant matters, so we are delighted to respond by adding another highly active, market-leading expert who has worked in numerous jurisdictions around the world and has been a mentor to us and leader in our field. We know that together we will continue to grow an outstanding, agile team that is greater than the sum of its parts and will support Pablo’s busy schedule of cases alongside our own. We can’t wait to start working together again.”

“Pablo’s remarkable research record on regulatory and institutional economics at UC Berkeley, coupled with his extensive experience as researcher, advisor and testifying expert, fits perfectly with our firm’s DNA. International expansion is a critical element of BRG’s projected growth. Our International Arbitration practice is going from strength to strength, and, with the addition of Professor Spiller, we can count on significant synergies within the practice and the rest of the firm,” concluded David Teece, BRG’s cofounder and executive chairman and a Professor of the Graduate School at UC Berkeley.
