Practice Focus

Gonzalo focuses his professional practice on constitutional law and human rights, with experience in advisory and litigation (with special emphasis on writs of amparo processes in all its forms: against judicial resolutions, against self-applicable norms, among others).

He actively participates in pro bono cases, from advice and consultancy in matters of legal entities (establishment of associations), to complex litigation before the judicial authorities. As part of his experience in educational regulation, he manages internal issues such as the operation and development of the legal entity, as well as procedures before the SUNEDU, the MINEDU and the public registries office.

Representative Legal Matters

  • Successful sponsorship of a person in an amparo process against judicial decisions that declared him an interdict, obtaining a ruling that applied for the first time the convention on the rights of persons with disabilities. It was a pro bono case.
  • Successful sponsorship of a company in the hydrocarbon sector in 'corporate amparo processes' initiated by its shareholders, seeking the non-application of agreements of its general shareholders' meeting. It was possible to revert a precautionary measure in favor of the shareholders. In addition, all the claims have been dismissed.
  • Successful sponsorship of a private law company in an amparo process to recover the property of a highly priced real estate asset, unduly confiscated by the state.
  • Successful defense of a professional association in an amparo process against judicial resolutions. Against this process, its counterpart initiated an 'amparo against amparo' process, which was also defended by the Firm, achieving a unanimous decision by the constitutional court in favor of our client.
  • Successful sponsorship of licensed universities in procedures and administrative procedures before the SUNEDU and the public registries.
