Camila has extensive experience in civil law, including civil liability and commercial law, with an emphasis on insurance and reinsurance matters. Her professional activity has been largely devoted to litigation. She is an advisor to foreign investors, business corporations as well as national and international insurance and reinsurance companies.

For many years, Camila has provided legal support in the insurance/ reinsurance field, which allows her to anticipate concerns of foreign clients regarding the domestic jurisdiction. This work includes legal advice and litigation in both the ordinary and arbitral jurisdictions, as well as extrajudicial dispute resolution. She also advises on coverage and defence strategies.

Camila has represented the interests of leading reinsurance and insurance companies who underwrite risks in Colombia and has advised them on the control and management of their risks. She has been appointed in several complex cases concerning financial losses covered under Bankers Blanket Bond, D&O and Professional Indemnity Insurances.

She is arbitrator at the Arbitration and Conciliation Center of the Chamber of Commerce of Bogotá and has participated in numerous arbitrations, either as arbitrator or secretary of the Tribunal. She is member of the Colombian Association of Insurance Law – ACOLDESE.
