Mr. Aguirre Luzi’s practice focuses on international arbitration. The scope of his practice includes counseling multinational corporations on complex arbitration before the World Bank Group’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and UNCITRAL, as well as commercial arbitration under the AAA and ICC rules. 
 
He also has extensive experience in administrative law, government contracts, oil and gas contracts, public utilities, and power and infrastructure projects. 

Mr. Aguirre Luzi is included in Global Arbitration Review’s 2011 “45 Under 45” as one of the leading figures of the international arbitration bar under the age of 45. Chambers Latin America ranks Roberto Aguirre Luzi individually, recognizing him for his “knowledgeable, highly proactive attitude,” and notes that he is a “high-level bilingual lawyer.” He has also been featured in Who’s Who in International Arbitration and co-chairs the American Branch of International Law Association’s Committee on Bilateral Investment Treaties and Development.

Mr. Aguirre Luzi worked for five years as an associate for Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal before joining King & Spalding in 2003. 
 
He was born in San Juan, Argentina, speaks Spanish and English, and reads French, Italian and Portuguese.
 

The Rotary Club of Houston is a group of business leaders working together collaboratively to impact positive change in our community and around the world, operating consistently with Rotary's motto of Service Above Self. Some of our service projects include:
 

  • Rotary Distinguished Citizen Award is presented annually to someone in Houston who exhibits high ideals, leadership and philanthropy. The funds raised support the club’s on-going service activities.

 

  • Camp Enterprise is an annual activity that introduces business and business ethics to 75 high school juniors.  The funds for this event are raised with an annual golf tournament.

 

  • Burnett Bayland Outreach has delivered personal support and mentoring to at-risk children at the county run resident.


The club also works actively in many other areas including mentoring elementary school youth, giving assistance to ex-offenders, and international projects, including Polio Plus.

 

 

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

 

  • FIRST - The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; 
  • SECOND - High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD - The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions: "Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

AND AS THE ROTARY CLUB OF HOUSTON SAYS

5. Will it be FUN!

 
 

Please RSVP by noon on Tuesday.
$28 for all guests and visiting Rotarians who register in advance. $32 at the door.
