Department profile submitted by Guevara & Gutiérrez S.C. Servicios Legales
Guevara & Gutiérrez is the most experienced firm in international arbitration in Bolivia. The recent developments in the political scenario of Bolivia resulted in a number of expropriations and nationalizations of investments. The dispute resolution team of G&G has been retained to attend, and has successfully handled, most of the claims of foreign investors against the Bolivian government.
Quoting Global Arbitration Review GAR, Guevara & Gutiérrez probably shares the top spot with other firms in litigation in Bolivia, but when it comes to arbitration, GG is at a complete different level. According to Latin Lawyer 250, “Arbitration is the jewel in Guevara & Gutiérrez crown”.
This department is also known for its experience in antitrust cases. Antitrust regulations are very recent in Bolivia, and G&G has positioned itself as an important player in this field. Its portfolio of clients includes some of the largest companies operating in Bolivia.
Finally, the firm is an important player in the Bolivian legal market, for handling commercial disputes, tort disputes, product liability litigations, and in particular, for issues related to labour and social security law. One of the founding partners of the firm, Primitivo Gutiérrez, is widely acknowledged as one of the most experienced Bolivian lawyer in labour law disputes.
