Litigation & Dispute resolution

In today’s legal and regulatory environment, litigation can threaten a company’s very existence.

Pre-litigation Advice and Strategy-building 

That is why at Gowper, we help clients by building pre-litigation strategies with a view to reaching an amicable settlement, and reduce the uncertainties associated with dispute resolution. We ensure that clients understand the strategies available to them for avoiding judicialization of the controversy, as well as the different approaches for their judicial defense, in case an amicable solution cannot be reached.

At the moment the judicial proceeding begins, we conduct cost-benefit analysis to determine the convenience of a short-term victory, more limited in scope, or an overall success in a longer deadline.

Activities Before the Courts

We represent clients in all type of judicial matters and procedures, particularly regarding civil and commercial litigation.

Our lawyers are highly specialized and deal with the most complicated topics related to the main economic sectors on a daily basis.

Acting Across Europe and Beyond

We counsel in many other jurisdictions within the European Union and elsewhere, when cross-border cases require a sophisticated understanding of private international law, together with knowledge of local law. Likewise, we represent clients in dealing with cases concerning international public law.
