Dispute Resolution

With a focus on solving our clients’ disputes, we consider litigation and arbitration as a last resort after exhausting all channels of negotiation.

We have a solid team with a long track record in national and international litigations and arbitrations. We work together with the client to define an effective strategy oriented towards solving disputes in the shortest time possible, thus minimizing the impact of the dispute on the operation of its business.

We obtain very favorable results in disputes related to sectors such as hydrocarbons, medicine and health services, insurance, faulty products, contractual and non-contractual liability, constitutional matters, consumer defense and environmental matters, among others.

We operate at the highest ethical and professional standards. We obtain results with solid legal arguments, persuasive reasoning and a deep knowledge of procedural techniques.

We represent our clients in courts and arbitral tribunals abroad.  We work independently or as a team with the best international firms in matters of arbitration and litigations, as the client or case requires.

What they say about us

Chambers Latin America

Considers:  Durante mucho tiempo la firma ha gozado de respeto y sigue siendo gran competidora en resolución de conflictos. El grupo de 12 abogados de esta Unidad se destaca por su actividad en el escenario local, aunque últimamente también ha asesorado a empresas internacionales tales como Perenco, Odebrecht y GM. Sus áreas más frecuentes en las que participa incluyen desacuerdos en aspectos energéticos, construcción, telecomunicaciones y salud.”

The Legal 500

States that: “The ‘outstanding’ Pérez Bustamante & Ponce includes dispute resolution within its full-service offering, handling the full range of contentious work (barring criminal matters), and emphasising arbitration and mediation in seeking alternative solutions for clients. The ‘top-notch’ Rodrigo Jijón heads the team and is ‘highly knowledgeable’ and provides ‘practical and reliable’ advice. Jijón has a ‘solid’ team and this was bolstered by the promotion of Juan Manuel Marchán to partner in January 2013. The team advises across all industry sectors (and also coordinates contentious IP and tax matters), but has been at its busiest handling litigious matters for a number of high-profile oil and gas companies, particularly in relation to environmental claims.”
