Areas of Practice

Civil Law in Puerto Rico

Because of our Spanish heritage and our close relationship with the United States of America, Puerto Rico’s civil law system is a unique one. State and federal court interpretation of Puerto Rico’s Civil Code are of utmost importance because of our hybrid common law/civil law system. Our attorneys are well versed in all areas of the Civil Code and relative federal and state jurisprudence.

Insurance Law in Puerto Rico

Courts in Puerto Rico are scenario of copious amounts of insurance related litigation because of the Island’s “Direct Action” statute. Article 20.03 of the Puerto Rico Insurance Code allows plaintiffs to file action against the insured and/or the insurer who issued a policy that covers the alleged damages. The Firm represents insurance companies, agencies and brokers. Our attorneys provide legal counsel and representation to financial and insurance companies in legislative and government agency matters at the Senate, House of Representative, and the Commisioner of Insurance Office.
