LEGALSA has one of Guatemala’s larger and more experienced teams of highly – qualified  specialists in dispute resolution. We are particularly effective in the management of highly complex, “bet the house” disputes, including civil, commercial and administrative litigation, arbitration, credit recovery, writs of amparo, extra – judicial negotiations and criminal proceedings. We have developed very successful and highly specialized practices in the management and prevention of shareholder disputes, intellectual property litigation, unfair competition claims and white-collar business crime defense and investigations.

Our firm successfully defended our clients’ interests in shareholder disputes within two of Guatemala’s largest corporate groups; the disputes involved a total of over 1,300 judicial actions. We also were successful in defending a client’s   rights against more than 25 judicial challenges to their adjudication of one of the largest Guatemalan government concessions in several decades.
