Banking Litigation in Spain

The litigation procedure is started when one or both parties of a specific business agreement are liable for not respecting one or more of the provisions of a contract. Litigation is the process in which the parties will bring the case in front of a Spanish court, which will have the legal right to establish the terms in which the case will be resolved.
