In order for companies to ensure that they benefit from the decision to choose arbitration to resolve a dispute, certain key checks should be made from the outset, say David Arias and Félix Montero, partners at Pérez-Llorca.
José Juan Pintó Sala
When it comes to the attraction of arbitration to resolve sports-related disputes, José Juan Pintó Sala of Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle is clear. “The fundamental issue is the rapidity of proceedings, compared to the ordinary Courts, and the uniformity and equality of treatment especially in international disputes.”
Calvin Hamilton
As a US-trained commercial arbitrator with a successful practise in Madrid, Calvin Hamilton, partner at Monereo Meyer Marinel-lo Abogados, is well placed to assess Spain’s relative success in promoting itself as a venue for international arbitration.
Portugal’s historical and legal legacy, as well as its geographic position, makes it an increasingly attractive location for international arbitrations, particularly those involving Lusophone countries says José Miguel Júdice of PLMJ.

Competing in a global arena - Cuatrecasas

Those Spanish law firms with the necessary track record and dedicated expertise will increasingly compete globally in the arbitration arena, says Cristian Conejero, Counsel at Cuatrecasas
Pablo Bernad Ramoneda
In order to support an arbitration claim it is important that both the financial and economic analysis presented is both credible and justified, says Pablo Bernad Ramoneda, Head of KPMG’s Europe Middle East and Africa Forensic Group. His experience tells him that as with any aspect of arbitration, it is fundamental that a party, or indeed the arbitrators themselves, are able to rely on an independent and professional analysis of a claim, and that it is presented in the best possible manner.
Josè María Alonso
Arbitration is not the preserve of multinational corporations, emphasises Garrigues’ managing partner José María Alonso, it can benefit commercial organisations of any size.
Among lawyers in Portugal and Spain there is a strong belief that the uncertainties currently affecting both the local and international economies will result in an increase in commercial disputes.
