Juan Manuel Sánchez Pueyo

Alumnus Commercial and Company Law 2014-2015

My name is Juan M. Sánchez Pueyo and I am a Managing Associate in the Dutch and Spanish Dispute Resolution Practices of Linklaters LLP. I specialize in commercial and investment arbitration. I joined Linklaters in 2019 after having worked at NautaDutilh as member of the Arbitration Practice. I have participated in numerous highly complex and high value matters, and gained experience under a variety of arbitration rules (including UNCITRAL, ICC, SIAC, CEPANI and NAI rules). I often act as counsel in arbitrations and arbitration related court proceedings, such as setting aside proceedings and enforcement proceedings. I also have experience in court proceedings and regularly advise clients regarding crisis management and litigation strategy. Recently, I had the honour to represented a client in the first merits hearing conducted before the recently opened Netherlands Commercial Court.

 I obtained my bachelors in Law and Political Science and Public Administration in the University of Seville, Spain. After I finished those studies, I wanted to study abroad and – after an extensive research on the different opportunities that I had within Europe – I decided to study the Masters’ Degree on Commercial and Company law at Erasmus University, where I graduated in 2015.  

My first contact with the arbitration world took place thanks to Erasmus University and the Erasmus Willem C. Vis Moot team that, at the time, was sponsored by NautaDutilh. After the Vis Moot competition was over and I had finished my masters, I was offered an internship at NautaDutilh. That is how I began my career as arbitration practitioner. My personal experience shows that not only the degree or masters that you choose on itself is important but also the environment in which you are studying and living. In my opinion, Erasmus University has a lot to offer in this respect. Rotterdam is a dynamic, entrepreneurial city, and the Erasmus University Campus is a reflection of this, filled with lots of interesting people, great professors and many, many opportunities.
