Commercial and Administrative Litigation

Appropriate management of conflict in all its forms and stages has been found to be vital to obtain satisfactory results in all undertakings. Poorly executed litigation has the potential of threatening the survival of a company and thus, it must be led by a team of lawyers bringing together experience, insight and intelligence, responsibility and seriousness with dedication and knowledge. That is exactly what our clients will find in our litigation team, an efficient and focused group of professionals led by Attorney Jonatán Picado, capable of successfully meeting the demands of the most complex conflicts.

The capacity of developing an adequate risk matrix and establishing an appropriate strategy to safeguard the interests of the company is the result of a mature and versatile team.

Our team’s well-established practice is recognized by those involved in the administration of justice at Courts of Justice, Courts of Arbitration and Conciliation Centres.
