Held up for its ‘excellence‘ in civil and contractual liability, DLA Piper Martinez Beltrán‘s comprehensive practice encompasses the full spectrum of contentious matters, with class actions -particularly in the financial and insurance areas- standing out as a sweet spot.

Fellow co-head José Miguel Mendoza, whose former posts include chief judge of business courts and head of the public utilities’ supervisor, specialises in corporate litigation. The 10-strong group also includes associate litigation directors, seniors Julian Solorza, who advises on class actions and punitive administrative processes, and Sergio Rojas leading the liability and damages practice. Competition co-head María Claudia Martínez also participates in the area.
