Administrative Litigation and Arbitration

Our legal system fully safeguards the right to effective court protection against those actions or omissions of public entities that damage citizens and companies' rights and interests. In this area lawyers are required to have an in-depth knowledge of the relevant material law and mastery of the applicable procedural law.

The firm is particularly well prepared to face the new challenges of the administrative justice system: rejections of administrative acts, injunctions for the performance of acts by the administration, actions regarding agreements, as well as injunctions for the access to documents held by the administration, civil liability actions and preventive injunctions. These are examples of procedural means that we deal with on a daily basis in the administrative courts.

In the wider context of activity in the arbitration area, we have a breadth and depth of experience in monitoring litigations relating to construction contract agreements, public concessions and urban planning issues.

In addition to competence in specific areas of performance within the framework of substantive law (administrative, urban and environmental laws), our team also provides legal support in litigation proceedings, including arbitration.
