Spain > Dispute resolution

The ‘coordinated‘ and ‘collaborative‘ dispute resolution team at Ramón y Cajal Abogados is noted for its ‘prompt attention‘ and ‘optimal knowledge‘. The team is perhaps best known for its vast experience in financial services-sector litigation, where it is a popular choice for major banks in Spain, but the department also balances a varied practice and counts real estate, retail and energy-sector companies among its clients. Arbitration is also a core part of the practice, with Fernando Manzanedo and Fernando Tallón key contacts in this space. Pro bono work is another area of focus for the disputes team, which has recently acted in cases concerning Covid-19, urban leases and immigration. Experienced partners Ramón Fernández-Aceytuno and Luis Briones lead the sizeable dispute resolution team, in which Carmen Fernández-Hontoria and Luis Carnicero are also key practitioners.
