At GVA Gómez-Villares & Atencia you will find a large team with substantial experience of fighting in court to represent and protect the fundamental rights of our clients. We have recorded many successes in this field, all of them with the common aim of re-establishing the full enjoyment and exercise of such rights. This type of appeal is commenced by way of petition setting out the principles of law which have been breached, and asking for the protection in question. In addition, it is possible to take legal action through other ordinary channels in order to recover any compensation that may be due.
We have an expert legal practice, with a comprehensive knowledge of the Constitution and the courts and tribunals.
At GVA Gómez-Villares & Atencia we are conscious of the dual function of a constitutional appeal. On the one hand, it fulfils the function of protecting the citizen’s rights and fundamental guarantees, and on the other, it protects the constitutional text as it guarantees that the principles contained therein are not violated.
Thus, our law firm ensures the enjoyment and exercise of the individual’s rights and guarantees as established in the Constitution, laws and international treaties, and sanction against the perpetrators, whether citizens or public or private organisations.
The firm takes charge of initiating the petition for constitutional protection, the contents of which are fixed by organic law and, in addition, we prepare the documentation that must accompany it. In the petition we remain focussed on the procedural objective –the declaration that the act or provision is void–, and the reason why that declaration is sought.
