The Firm represents a number of different national and foreign clients in relevant legal procedures, looking for the maximum satisfaction of the client’s claims, using alternative dispute resolution methods when possible and seeking an effective solution for the client’s greater interest.

The area of litigation benefits from the permanent cooperation of the rest of the areas within the Firm, however, depending of the content of the dispute, the litigation will be under the direction of the practice area that has a stronger relation with the object of the claim.

Our services include:

  • Counselling and representation in Arbitration Tribunals
  • Judicial representation in ordinary and administrative claims.
  • Advisory and representation in alternative dispute resolutions methods.
