Recognized for its regional leadership, BLP is the law firm for conducting business in Central America, with over 150 lawyers providing service in 28 practice areas at 9 offices strategically distributed in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and a representation office in Spain.
BLP is built on the conviction that legal advisers must become true business law partners of their clients. Since the establishment of the firm in 2003, we have earned the trust of clients by using our expertise and capabilities to provide legal advice with sound business judgment. In doing so, the firm adheres to the highest international standards of quality, reliability, and efficiency.
Seeking a broader presence in the international market, the representative office in Madrid, Spain, creates a portal to European economies and generates business opportunities between Central America and Europe. Our international capabilities allow us to bring our global clients closer to new investment opportunities in Latin America.
In addition to advising on preventive measures and compliance, the labor and employment group at BLP assists clients with labor due diligence processes and litigation, frequently advising on planning and structuring, policies and benefits for executive staff, and administrative proceedings, for instance against Costa Rica's social security administration.
Our Global Mobility & Relocation practice area is strong on the relocation of foreign workers, including Free Trade Zone personnel who bring to the country experience and expertise in new or expanded production methods. Our relocation experts have a profound understanding of the potential impact on executive transferees of Central America´s immigration benefits, such as Costa Rica´s new Golden Visa which makes relocation to our shores far more attractive than before.
