El Diario de Cádiz has recently published an article highlighting the work carried out by Aiyon from its offices in Algeciras and Cádiz, its solid presence in the south and its active participation in the sector, not only as expert lawyers in Maritime Law, International Trade, Insurance or Transport Law, but also as teachers and trainers of the new generations being part of the teaching staff of the “Master in Legal Consultancy of Companies” taught at the University of Cadiz.
From its headquarters in Algeciras, José Domínguez Castro, partner and head of the firm, who in addition to being a lawyer has a degree in Nautical and Maritime Transport, a Diploma in Civil Navy and a Merchant Navy Pilot with accredited experience in passenger ships and ro-ro cargo, confirmed to the Journal that the local client is fully aware of the need of specialised lawyers to provide legal advice in the different areas of our speciality. We refer to all matters relating to trade, transport and insurance, and all that this entails in terms of the lawyer’s knowledge of the world of logistics, port handling, storage and warehousing, shipbuilding and ship repair, ship supplies and services, land transport, sanctioning procedures, insurance claims, etc. Legal advice is provided from a purely contentious point of view when the dispute has already arisen and in order to try to reach a negotiated resolution, or judicial if unavoidable, as well as from a previous moment in order to obtain preventive advice and avoid possible future risk situations.
Together with Enrique Ortiz, partner in charge of Aiyon’s office in Cadiz and expert lawyer, our colleagues have actively participated as speakers and trainers in Universities and companies. An example of this are the recent lectures on transport and insurance in the international sale and purchase given int June in the “Master’s Degree in Business Legal Consultancy” at the University of Cadiz. With regard to his teaching work, we would like to echo José’s words: “We have really enjoyed giving these conferences and we are grateful to the University of Cadiz for having counted on us for this Master’s Degree. With the regulatory selection we made and the case study method, taking advantage of our real experience, we think that the students have been able to acquire a global vision of real and common risks that arise in this complicated sector and how to advise their companies or clients so that they can prepare themselves in the best possible way and protect their interests when facing operations of this type”.
