Litigation and Arbitration

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo receives praise for providing ‘legal advice of the highest quality.

The Legal 500

Our Litigation practice has been one of the fastest growing areas of the Firm in recent years, not only in terms of size, but also in terms of the importance and nature of the matters we handle.

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo has a Civil Litigation team comprising experienced professionals with excellent and continuous academic training, which allows us to respond to our clients' needs, always using the necessary resources to design the legal strategy that best suits the requirements of each case. Our experience in different economic sectors and the existence of multidisciplinary teams supported by a solid Academic Council means that our lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of each client's specific business.

The experience gained from managing an insolvency proceeding of such complexity, as well as other company insolvencies in different fields, has provided this team with all the professional qualities necessary to be able to successfully provide comprehensive advice to clients in any situation arising from insolvency proceedings.

We recently filed for insolvency proceedings against Banco de Madrid, S.A.U., which is currently being processed.

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo has an arbitration team made up of lawyers specialised in resolving disputes before the most prestigious national and international arbitration courts. The members of the team have extensive experience in advising clients from different economic sectors and offer assistance, defence and legal advice at all stages of the arbitration proceedings. Thanks to the international training of its lawyers and the good knowledge and handling of national law, the Arbitration team has advised clients in arbitration proceedings in different languages and arbitral seats.

Our areas of activity in the field of Litigation and Arbitration are:

  • Validity, interpretation and enforcement of commercial and non-commercial contracts.
  • Contractual and non-contractual liability claims.
  • Termination and rescission of contracts.
  • Liability of directors, auditors and managers.
  • Commercial distribution, agency, supply and franchise contracts.
  • Challenging company resolutions and all types of corporate conflicts.
  • Disputes related to contractor agreements and work for hire agreements.
  • Procedures for the adoption of interim measures, including those taken in support of judicial or arbitral proceedings.
  • Proceedings for the enforcement of judgments.
  • Proceedings to vacate, correct, modify and enforce national arbitration awards.
  • Proceedings for recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitration awards.
