José María Alonso, CIAM’s future president

The plenary of the International Centre of Arbitration of Madrid (CIAM) has elected this thursday José María Alonso (pictured) as future president. As of 1 January 2023, he will replace Juan Serrada, who currently holds that position.

José María Alonso has more than 30 years of experience as an international arbitrator and has been involved in more than 200 proceedings. He has also been managing partner of law firms such as Baker McKenzie and Garrigues, and founding member and first president of the Spanish Arbitration Club.

Alonso will face certain challenges during his new position, which consist of continuing to position CIAM as one of the international courts of reference in the field of arbitration, continuing to attract new cases and disputes to the Centre and advancing in its international strategy, with the deployment of the institution in latin america.

“As dean of ICAM I have supported this project from the very beginning and now it is an honour to take the lead to continue working on its consolidation, with the aim of making Madrid a world-class seat for international arbitration. My professional career has been closely linked to the world of arbitration, which is why I am proud to have been unanimously elected president of CIAM”, said the future president of the centre.
