Overview

The Dispute Resolution department is broadly based and has acquired unrivalled expertise, being one of the the first in the country to be organized along departmental lines. Disputes being an inevitable consequence of business activity in an increasingly regulated, high speed environment, the team aims to provide  clients with advice that is sound, realistic, and forthright.

The lawyers’ experience ranges from representation in the lower courts to the High Court of Cassation and Justice, as well as in the Constitutional Court and extends to national and international arbitration (ICSID, ICC and UNCITRAL procedures). Most of the team's instructions have involved highly complex cases, including voluminous documents and heavy research work, working closely with clients (most of which are multinational corporations and large local companies) to understand their needs, before recommending the right solution.

The team's work in the contentious field has involved all types of disputes, including commercial, intellectual property, banking and finance, tax issues, insolvency, insurance, labor, maritime, real estate, securities, family, successions and additional claims raised during enforcement of civil and commercial judgments or awards.
