Sfera Legal has a litigation team which has specialized in complex litigation matters which have included corporate, real estate, shareholder and regulatory issues.
The team's success rate is very high and clients are satisfied with the response times, alternate strategies proposed by the members and the constant follow up required to litigate in Costa Rica.
The team has also participated and continues to participate in national and international arbitration including an important case before ICSID. Clearly, despite the specialty and experience in more complex matters, the team does provide services in less complex civil, labor and commercial matters as a complimentary service to many of its clients.
Sfera Legal has successfully represented three of the largest international banks in the region for more than 5 years.
These banks have required services not only for regulatory issues but also day to day operational issues, including private placements and lending operations.
The years of representation are important evidence of the efficient services and success that Sfera Legal has maintained in the representation of these institutions.
