Litigation & arbitration

With a long experience in the legal practice, our experts are highly qualified in the judicial and arbitral defence of the client’s interests. At the same time, the understanding of their needs and objectives allows us to create the adequate teams for each case, paying special attention to its circumstances.

On the other hand, the cross-sectional character of this department determines the high degree of coordination maintained with other practice areas like Bankruptcy, Labour or Tax Law, complementing the procedural assistance in court with the high degree of technical knowledge in such branches in all the stages of each case.

In judicial and arbitral processes, our lawyers represent the client before all the Spanish Courts of Justice and have developed a long career in the legal defence of particular and corporate clients in different kinds of matters. Furthermore, it is important to outline that one of our Founding Partners, Mr. Eduardo Estrada Alonso, is a licensed Arbiter and intervened as so in numerous top-line national cases.
