Litigation

The team of lawyers from the Litigation Law Department has solid legal training and two clear goals: excellence in their practice and complete client satisfaction.

They are multidisciplinary teams designed to cover all the specialities and are, therefore, formed according to subject-matter and business sector. Matters are led by one of the Partners, making it possible to offer the client complete care and attention from the outset.

The work of the Litigation Law Department takes advantage of synergies with other departments at the Firm —such as Finance, Employment and Tax— and it is common for counsel to begin to be received before litigation in order to avoid proceedings or, insofar as is possible, to put the client on a more favourable footing and with maximum guarantees of success.

Our Litigation Law Department intervenes before all courts and arbitration tribunals. We also offer clients active participation in proceedings before foreign jurisdictions, while retaining the same partner for all purposes.
