Litigation

Within: Litigation

DLA Piper Martinez Beltrán’s ten-strong practice provides ‘outstanding’ advice handling litigation cases across a wide range of industries. The well-regarded Camilo Martínez and José Miguel Mendoza co-lead the team, which is currently representing the Colombian Sugarcane Growers Association (Asocaña), as defendant, in a constitutional group action brought by the entire Colombian sugar industry; the plaintiffs allege the use of restrictive business practices. The team is also acting for Incolbest on its opposition to a class action that seeks to ban the use of asbestos, one of the main raw materials the company uses for its final products. Senior associate Julián Solorza and associate Sergio Rojas are also key members of the team. Clients include Fondo Nacional de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, Ingenio del Cauca, Bolsa de Valores de Colombia and QBE.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
