Dispute Settlement Center Expands Team with Eugenio Moreno

Updated: Feb 7

Dispute Settlement Center LLC is pleased to announce the expansion of our team. Eugenio A. Moreno M. has joined our group of certified and multilingual mediators with his broad experience in handling a diverse range of hull and machinery claims, P&I claims, as well as cargo, personal injury, collisions, allisions, and oil pollution claims. He is experienced in resolving disputes in both Spanish and English.

As a correspondent, Eugenio has assisted international adjusting companies with a diverse range of claims including the shipping, energy, property and banking industries.


Eugenio wholeheartedly believes in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and in the effectiveness of professionally managed mediations to resolve disputes. ADR is a proven alternative to traditional legal courses of action and the high emotional and financial costs often associated with those options.

“There is an affordable and less stressful way to resolve disputes.”
