Elisabeth Eljuri, P.A.

Elisabeth Eljuri is an Independent Arbitrator and Energy Consultant. She practiced law for nearly three decades with a focus on Latin America, and is considered a leading authority in the areas of energy, natural resources and major projects. Her experience covers an extensive international disputes practice as well as a world-class transactional practice, which she rounded up with close to four years as an executive in an oil company. This provides her with an integral and sophisticated understanding of the industries and cases she is involved in at the highest level that can be achieved in legal practice.

Immediately prior to her current role as arbitrator and consultant, Ms. Eljuri was with Sierra Oil & Gas until 2019 where she was the Vice President, Chief Negotiator and Chief Legal Counsel. Sierra was a private equity- backed oil upstream company which was created by three major US funds to capture opportunities in the Mexican energy market.  She remained there until the successful exit and sale of the company to a large European energy company. Ms. Eljuri was one of two lead negotiators of such sale.

Before venturing into private equity and her executive role, she spent 27 years in legal practice at two of the world’s largest law firms. Until December 2015, Ms. Eljuri was the Head of Latin America of Norton Rose Fulbright where she was a senior partner of the Firm focusing in the areas of international arbitration, energy and natural resources and projects/infrastructure for nearly 18 years.
