Litigation and Arbitration

“Uría Menéndez is widely regarded as one of the strongest firms for litigation and arbitration in Spain and further afield.” (Chambers Europe)


Our Litigation and Arbitration Practice Area advises on civil and commercial disputes. We create multidisciplinary teams so that, in addition to leading specialists in litigation and arbitration, every client benefits from the expertise of lawyers from relevant practice areas. Our aim is to offer our clients added value in every negotiation, claim and arbitration.

It is one of our main goals to understand the specific characteristics of the sectors in which our clients operate, be it banking, finance, telecommunications, energy, infrastructures, construction, real estate, consumer goods or pharmaceuticals, to name but a few. In determining the strategy to be adopted in a dispute, we use this specialist knowledge to ensure the needs and concerns of our clients are paramount, an approach which affords us a competitive advantage valued at both an international and domestic level.
