Dispute Resolution


The strength of CMS Rodríguez-Azuero in the substantial issues handled by the different practice areas enables it to accompany its clients to a high degree when, despite efforts to avoid controversies, it is necessary to address them as plaintiffs or defendants.

In this matter, we empower our clients in civil, commercial, criminal, administrative, tax and insolvency proceedings, both nationally and regionally, as well as in processes before the jurisdiction of competition and consumer protection. Likewise, we advise our clients on matters of constitutional law, especially in constitutional processes of legal rules, guardianships, popular and group actions.

In recent years we have received special recognition for our activity in proceedings before the Superintendence of Companies, which, acting with jurisdictional faculties, has dealt with numerous cases of mass illegal deposit taking. The particular strength of our Firm in financial law has made us very active participants in the debate and defenders of the victims of these fraud mechanisms.

Additionally, we have a clear experience in the arbitration activity in which we have frequently worked as national or international arbitrators, as well as representatives of the parties in conflict.
