Litigation and ADR
An efficient dispute resolution as well as litigation prevention or an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) are very important at present. That is why La Guard has lawyers with an extensive track record who have been trained as mediators and arbitrators at the best European and North American universities and who regularly also act as arbitrators or counsel before numerous domestic and international arbitration and ADR institutionsRead more
We at La Guard provide you with our experience before prestigious courts and arbitration institutions such as the Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Barcelona Arbitration Court and the Court of Arbitration of the Chamber of Commerce of Madrid.
As mediators, we also participate in mercantile transactions between companies, actively providing solutions to resolve conflicts on a consensual basis, with the consequent saving in terms of cost and weariness for both parties.
In procedural law, we have extensive experience in resolving civil, mercantile and economic crime litigation, designing, right from the start, the procedural strategy to follow and trying, at all times, to reach an agreement that satisfies both parties to end the litigation and help rebuild bridges between them.
In the civil-mercantile area, we are regularly involved in defending all types of conflicts, particularly in the pharmaceutical, logistics, banking, real estate, food processing and textile sectors, among others. We also resolve corporate litigation as well as that related to distribution and commercial agencies, defective products, engineering, unfair competition or director liability, as well as succession and family companies.
In the criminal area, we are solely involved in economic disputes; in practice, this has taught us that they are often closely related to others which are strictly civil or mercantile, in the interests precisely of providing overall and comprehensive advice to our clients.
Since we have many contacts in other countries, we are actively involved in resolving litigation concerning private international law, defining the procedural strategy to be followed jointly with the external collaborating law firms which have been carefully chosen or enforcing foreign legal and arbitration decisions in Spain.
We also have a consolidated insolvency practice in terms of both preventing and resolving crisis situations, providing active advice throughout the insolvency proceedings and defending the administrators in the insolvency assessment cases.
