Litigation & Arbitration

We have removed obstacles to your success. No drifts, indecisions or surprises. With the flexibility to face the unexpected.

Our department represents national and international clients in complex litigation. We provide advice on:

  • Civil, criminal and corporate lawsuits, in particular civil liability and non-contractual claims, disputes related to general contractual clauses, collection and judicial and extrajudicial recovery of claims, as well as in insolvency and enforcement proceedings, criminal lawsuits against property, against the market and against honour, conflicts between shareholders, challenges to shareholders’ resolutions and directors’ liability.
  • Arbitration: this is increasingly a privileged and effective solution to resolve certain types of disputes to which the courts have not been able to respond satisfactorily. Our firm is highly experienced in ad hoc and institutional arbitrations at a national and international level, including in annulment and recognition cases and enforcement of arbitration judgments.
