Sometimes it is not possible to avoid going through the court system to resolve certain matters, for those cases our litigators have the knowledge of Costa Rica litigation and experience of having represented our clients before most of the courts throughout Costa Rica. Each litigator concentrates in two or three substantive areas of law and, when necessary, consults with other attorneys to capitalize on of GLC’s broad range of knowledge and diverse experience.
