AVENIDA DIAGONAL 640, 8ºA

Spain > Dispute resolution Tier 1

Dispute resolution is a core strength for Pérez-Llorca, which balances a busy practice covering litigation and arbitration. In the former, antitrust damages litigation is a notable area of focus, as are construction and energy-related cases. The firm is also well versed in cases before the European Court of Justice (ECJ), where public and EU law specialist Juan Manuel Rodríguez Cárcamo has particular expertise representing banking-sector clients. The firm has steadily expanded its team in recent years; partner-level hires during 2020 included Jordi Gras, who joined the Barcelona office from EY Abogados in June of that year, and Ignacio Santabaya from Jones Day and Julio Parrilla from Dentons, who both joined in September. Also joining from Dentons in September 2020 was counsel Arancha Barandiarán, who has developed a strong practice in real estate and commercial litigation. The highly experienced Félix Montero leads the team, which also includes Beatriz García, who has vast experience in civil and administrative courts and arbitration proceedings, Guillermina Ester, Javier García Marrero, a partner since 2020, and Laura Ruiz, who was promoted to partner in 2021.
