Litigation

Litigation is part of our DNA.

We defend our clients before a wide range of jurisdictions and authorities (judicial, administrative and criminal courts, regulators, etc.), regardless of their legal issues.

Our strategic approaches are known for their acumen, even in the most difficult situations.

Efficient and optimal dispute resolution is our priority: litigation must not be an end in itself.

We are experienced in the use of alternative dispute resolution techniques including mediation and arbitration.
