Dr. Ponce together with Dr. Quevedo are the principal attorneys of the firm. Dr. Ponce’s vision and professional experience are based on the defense of the client in court and providing advance to prevent litigations.
However, he has experienced the consequences of corruption in the judicial system, particularly in times of dictatorship, between 1995 and 1997 and since December 2004.
He has worked in all branches of law, before all Courts and Tribunals, except for police and military tribunals.
He believes that the arbitrary management of the Administration must always be stopped by the judges. His first professional case was precisely a mechanism to bring to a halt the arbitrariness of the Municipality of Quito.
In a publicized dispute over trademark licensing he was successfully able to get the Supreme Court to contain a maelstrom of fatuous and arrogant dealers, but also a harmful law was repealed as unconstitutional by Congress.
His strategy in major international arbitration prevented the State to impose arbitrary conditions and led to compel the State to end the conflict by mutual agreement. He has tried to purge the judiciary branch without hesitation to denounce certain immoral judges. Consequently, he has defended the independence of the judiciary.
