Dispute Resolution

DESCRIPTION

Esguerra Asesores Juridicos has a vast experience in dispute resolution, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in numerous cases before national courts, as well as national and international arbitral tribunals throughout more than thirty years. The Team has experience in handling complex matters, including litigation before the International Chamber of Commerce, Bogota Chamber of Commerce, and Inter-American Commercial Arbitration Commission, as well as ordinary judges and tribunals in Colombia’s different jurisdictions.

Moreover, the impact of our work goes beyond borders since we also stand out for our successful participation in international arbitration cases before the International Chamber of Commerce and the Inter-American Commercial Arbitration Commission.

In addition, the firm has developed a special working method to gain maximum leverage of every partner’s area of expertise combined with a litigation strategy suited for every particular case. In order to prepare the litigation strategy, our team takes several aspects into consideration, including the economic sector and applicable regulation. Furthermore, we accomplish a thorough risk analysis of the particular dispute and set mitigation measures.

In order to guarantee our clients with a comprehensive legal advice concerning any actual or subsequent dispute, this practice area has a specialized knowledge of the different procedural regulations and relies on the academic and professional experience of the other areas on the firm. In light of the above, the dispute consulting in Esguerra Asesores Jurídicos protects its clients’ interests, not only while dealing with the specific controversy but also regarding both their economic development and market position.

Our one of a kind strategic consultancy provides our clients the best possible outcome, due to the coordination of our understanding in procedural law and the academic and professional knowledge and expertise of each area of the firm.
