In that context, the advice of CMS Grau is comprehensive and specialized. Our services include consultancy in ordinary procedures aimed at obtaining licenses, permits and authorizations in the most varied sectors. Similarly, we advise on sanctioning procedures in complex sectors: environment, hydrocarbons, telecommunications, electricity, and competence, among others.
Moreover, and hand in hand with the Infrastructure and Dispute Resolution Areas, we provide comprehensive advice on contracts with the State; from the selection processes to the execution of public contracts, including the settlement of disputes in arbitration.
We also provide specialized advice on administrative procedures for the control and elimination of bureaucratic barriers, in order to avoid any contingency linked to norms, acts or provisions of the Public Administration that prevent the access or permanence in the market of economic agents.
