Litigation and Arbitration

Our firm’s Litigation partners have a reputation for handling large, complex business disputes. Backed by a team of professionals with experience in different areas, and with the support of academic counsel experts, the firm handles litigation in commercial, contractual, bankruptcy, civil, anti-trust and tax matters. Among many recognitions, the firm’s litigation team obtained the first ruling by a Uruguayan court on international lis pendens in 2013, a leading case on behalf of a global corporation, and a significant landmark on behalf of foreign investment in a complex distribution agreement case.

In arbitration, our litigation team members have acted in some of Uruguay’s most important arbitration processes (involving infrastructure projects), and the experience extends beyond borders: our main litigators have past and current multi-million dollar engagements in arbitration processes locally and in foreign venues -including London- providing both local support in cross-border arbitration and engagement in complex cases.

The local litigation experience also includes comprehensive commercial and labor-related litigation, in both pre-trial and trial stages. Being an advisor to large clients with hundreds of employees, the firm understands the complexities, recurrence and defense necessities in courts across the whole country.
