complex litigation


“Boutique practice focused on complex litigation and arbitration”. –Chambers Latam, 2017.


At Gandarillas, Montt, Del Río & Krause we have ample and distinguished experience in highly complex litigation.  This requires a solid, experienced and creative team, that works in a coordinated and comprehensive manner.  We are highly qualified to tackle each case and its various implications, and to propose and implement a global and innovative strategy which satisfies the ethical and commitment standards that our clients require.


A litigation case may qualify as complex due to different factors. We look at the complexity as it pertains to:

  • The matter of controversy;

  • Combination of varied interests, parties, regulations or jurisdictions;

  • The need to find innovative solutions to disputes already in progress; and/or

  • Negative consequences for the reputation of an individual, the company or its owners, as well as directors and managers.
