Laura Martín, Counsel in the Madrid office of Osborne Clarke, specializes in litigation and arbitration (both domestic and international) and insolvency and bankruptcy law, with 20 years of experience in advising clients.

Laura specialises in procedural law. She provides advice and defense in all types of civil and commercial judicial proceedings, both in pre-litigation and litigation phases, as well as in arbitration proceedings before the main national and international Arbitration Courts.

She is Arbitrator of the Madrid Court of Arbitration, of the Court of Arbitration of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, and of the Barcelona Arbitration Court, as well as member of the Spanish Arbitration Club and its Mediation Commission.

She has provided advice and support to insolvency receivers appointed by the Commercial Courts in the processing of special actions (claw-back actions, among others).

It is also worth mentioning her academic work as a professor of procedural law and mediation in the Master of International Law at the Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE), also acting as a speaker at various courses and conferences and as a writer of articles of legal interest.

Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I am convinced that lawyers play a fundamental and relevant role for society, and it is our obligation to contribute to improve it. We must be wholeheartedly committed to new technologies, which help both lawyers and clients have more effective communication. We also much be fully committed to training new generations of lawyers not only in their technical skills, something absolutely essential because academic training alone is not enough, but also in the honest performance of the profession, in our daily relationships with lawyers who are our opponents and with the Courts and other professionals of Justice. The objective should be to move the system towards greater agility and to be able to provide clients and their problems with agile solutions, not straitjacketed ones.
