Department Information

Von Wobeser y Sierra, S.C. has developed this practice area very effectively in the face of the growing demand for specialized services in high level litigation involving claims for significant amounts in damages and lost profits, arising from contractual breaches or wrongful acts in general.

In this regard, the Firm has taken advantage of the experience acquired after many years involvement in arbitral proceedings and in court trials and administrative proceedings and has successfully applied this experience to commercial trials before Mexican courts. We have represented the interests of our clients, participating together with recognized litigators in the Mexican forum, in several of the most important cases, in terms of the amounts involved and complexity, before local and federal courts in Mexico.

A primary characteristic of our services in this area is to always look out for the best interests of our clients, avoiding to the extent possible the promotion of extended litigation resulting in big costs and often impractical resolutions. Therefore, the experience of the Firm in complex negotiations leads us to always orient our clients towards achieving the best settlements possible, conciliating the interests of the parties, resolving the problems and not encouraging their continuance indefinitely.
