Administrative Litigation

We have extensive experience in the substantiation of administrative procedures, including their contentious stages, such as administrative appeals and the promotion of nullity trials, either before the Federal Administrative Court or Local Administrative Courts. The same occurs with the promotion of constitutional defense mechanisms before the Judicial Power of the Federation, passing through the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation.

The litigation team is distinguished by the design of comprehensive strategies in defense of the interests of our clients, characterized by the introduction of innovative arguments that revolutionize the criteria of our judicial authorities.
