For over more than 30 years, Von Wobeser has mindfully constructed a broad and diverse team of elite trial lawyers, hand-picked from the best law schools in Mexico, the US, and Europe.
The members of the team are admitted to practice in various jurisdictions and have experience working at the best law firms in NY, Washington, D.C., Paris, and Beijing.
With over 30 lawyers, our Dispute Resolution Practice is one of the largest of its type in the market of Mexican law firms and is at the top of every accredited legal directory.
Von Wobeser has consolidated as the first choice of many leading global companies to represent them in their most complex and strategic litigations. Being often involved in bet-the-company litigation, the team has developed a unique sensibility and understanding of the high stakes implicated in our cases, allowing us to design and implement tailored court-room strategies and creative out-of-court resolutions that set us apart from our peers.
We are aware of the clients’ need to be constantly informed about their matters in order to jointly take strategic decisions. We are known for our attention to detail and for our high ethical standards.
Our Litigation Practice is comprised of both seasoned litigators and as well as skilled young lawyers, a formula that has yielded a success rate exceeding 88%. Our team includes two former Justices of the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice (Mr. Guillermo Ortiz Mayagoitia and Mrs. Margarita Beatriz Luna Ramos). They are Of Counsel of the firm and their advice is an essential reference point in the work we do in all areas of litigation. Our litigators have tried and argued cases in almost every forum – from state and federal trial and appellate courts, to administrative tribunals, to the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice, to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
Our services contemplate all kinds of disputes: Constitutional Litigation, Administrative Litigation, Class-Action Litigation, Civil and Commercial Litigation, Mediation, among others.
In Civil and Commercial Litigation, we have represented clients in a range of matters such as those related to shareholders and corporate disputes, contractual breaches, international sale of goods, joint ventures, real estate disputes, tortious liability, intellectual, patent and trademarks claims. Further, the team is particularly well positioned to handle class action cases, having been involved in four high profile class action proceedings, of the very few filed in Mexico so far.
In Administrative Litigation, Von Wobeser has successfully handled cases related to public procurement, public tenders, port authorities, conflicts before the Ministry of Transportation and before the Federal Consumer Agency, a variety of cases before Administrative Tribunals, controversies related to national security and public health, among others.
