Marta García Bel is a International Associate based in our New York office. She is a member of the dispute resolution practice group and specializes in commercial and investment arbitration.

Marta advises major corporates and states in international arbitrations, many involving complex and high value claims, conducted under the rules of the major arbitral institutions (ICSID, ICSID AF, ICC, LCIA...). Her recent experience includes representing Governments and multinational companies with investments in Latin America and Europe in a variety of sectors, including power and utilities, banking and financial services, pharmaceuticals, technology, telecommunications and food production and distribution. Marta also provides legal advice to corporates concerning public and private international law matters and on sustainability and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) transformation.

Marta spent nine months on secondment at Eni S.p.A, where she focused on energy-related arbitrations. Before joining Freshfields in early 2015, she worked as an associate at Uría Menéndez in Madrid and Barcelona where she represented clients in corporate criminal liability and white collar crime investigations and proceedings before the Spanish courts.

Marta advocates in Spanish, English and Italian. She also speaks fluent Catalan and some German and French. She regularly publishes and speaks on arbitration and international law topics. She is also a champion for diversity and inclusion, co-founder of the Italy Women's Network (2016) as well as of the Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge Young Practitioners Subcommittee, where she serves as Secretary since 2020.
