Alemán, Cordero, Galindo & Lee‘s dispute resolution team enjoys an excellent reputation among clients and peers alike. The five-partner practice handles a diverse caseload, offering the full-array of services in relation to commercial, civil and administrative litigation, as well as on arbitral matters. Led by Alejandro Ferrer, the ‘accessible and responsive‘ team continues to assist longstanding client Grupo Unidos por el Canal in multiple high-profile construction disputes. Additional standout work saw the ‘meticulous‘ department represent Ideal Panama, as defendant, in a $400m dispute regarding prevailing rights and the termination of a concession contract in connection with the client’s role as concessionaire of the Bajo Mina Power Plant project. The highly endorsed Jorge Lee, and recently promoted partners Eduardo Gómez and Jaime Castillo, are additional noteworthy practitioners.
