Dispute Resolution

Spain

Our dispute resolution team confronts the solution of issues from a corporate perspective, reaching far beyond the settlement of the matter. Within the realms of legal proceedings, judicial reviews and arbitration (both domestic and international), we analyse the risks, provide comprehensive management of cases and seek out constructive solutions for our clients. We advise companies and individuals from all economic sectors on issues such as business conflict and civil, criminal and tax disputes in relation to liability and compliance.

We safeguard our clients’ interests before the Spanish courts and arbitration chambers, as well as before European and international tribunals through the CMS network. Our global experience enables us to manage dispute resolution by imparting our knowledge of Spanish law in other European jurisdictions, as well as engaging in procedures for the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitration rulings.

We implement a tactical approach to proceedings in order to defend our clients’ interests before any jurisdiction, including arbitration concerning investment. Moreover, our partners frequently act as arbitrators.
