His prior work has focused on civil, insolvency and contentious-administrative proceedings before various Spanish courts, including the Supreme Court, and on national and international arbitration, before courts such as the ICC and the ICSID.

With a degree in Law from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a Master’s degree in Financial Markets and Stock Exchange from the Instituto de Estudios Bursátiles, he also studied the Advanced Insolvency and Corporate Law Programme taught at the IE Law School.

Santabaya is recognised as a Future Leader by the Who’s Who Legal international directory for the areas of ‘Arbitration’ and ‘Construction’; he is also included in Best Lawyers as one of the most prominent lawyers in the areas of ‘Arbitration & Mediation’ and ‘International Arbitration’. On the educational side, his collaboration with the IE Law School, as an assistant lecturer on the Advocacy course for this institution’s Law degree, is particularly noteworthy.
