Adriana Braghetta


She left the firm where she spent 12 years as a partner in January to establish Adriana Braghetta Advogados, where she will practice primarily as an arbitrator.

Braghetta previously served as vice president of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration until 2017 and continues to sit on its governing board. She is also a former chair of the Brazilian Arbitration Committee.

Braghetta says that “after more than 25 years acting as counsel, the time came to focus on sitting as arbitrator.” As she began to accept a growing number of appointments, she says the increase in potential conflicts of interest meant it was time to start a new boutique.

“I’m very thankful for the wonderful time co-leading the arbitration team at L O Baptista. We had many challenging and exciting arbitration cases and it was a privilege to work with the late Luiz Olavo Baptista among other talented and dedicated colleagues.”

She adds: “I’m excited by the change and eager to continue to work more and more,” saying she hopes to spend more time on academic projects and to “dedicate myself to the younger generations.”

At LO Baptista, Braghetta helped Brazil’s national development bank BNDES defeat a US$250 million International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) claim by Ecuador's state-run electricity company, who refused to repay a loan over faulty construction work by Odebrecht.

Braghetta was also on the 22-strong special committee of judges and practitioners that made revisions to Brazil’s 1996 Arbitration Act. She lectures at CEU Law School in São Paulo and speaks Portuguese, English, French and Spanish.
