We assume our clients defense in both arbitration and courts proceedings. International and national arbitration is becoming fundamental in dispute resolution conflicts. The fact that parties rather submit their disputes to international chambers of arbitration, than to the national courts of any of the parties to the contract, turns arbitration as the cornerstone of dispute resolution conflicts, particularly, between parties of different jurisdictions.

We have experience in proceedings before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and arbitration proceedings under the UNCITRAL rules, as well as we have experience in foreign investment dispute resolution before ICSID.

We believe that our excellence in this field would not have been possible without our long professional career and expert advice as practitioners both locally and internationally, and before different jurisdictional orders and different administrative bodies, as well as in foreign countries such as United States, Mexico, etc. Arbitration Practice is not limited to the attendance to the legal proceeding, it does also means the analysis of contractual clauses, drafting the proper arbitration clauses, the election of the best international court, etc, always in a case by case basis and with a complex understanding of the contractual relation between the parties, the national law applicable to the contract and the needs of our clients.

In addition we are familiar with the mechanisms of judicial review of the arbitration awards under Spanish Law and another jurisdictions, and the jurisdictional rules in force in the United States. We had the opportunity to discuss this issue on our article “El Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos o la judicialización del arbitraje” published in Diario EXPANSIÓN.

We have long career experience in litigating before national courts, and in all different jurisdictional orders, primarily in civil and administrative proceedings, although we do also act before the criminal and labor jurisdictional orders.
