Regional powerhouse Aguilar Castillo Love stands out for its ‘profound expertise’ in the corporate and M&A sphere and for covering ‘all aspects of legal matters in depth’. Key features of the seven-partner practice include advising multinational companies on market entry and the implementation of global mergers, as evidenced by its recent advice to Hewlett Packard on the implementation of the Costa Rican aspects of the global spin-off and subsequent merger of its software business with Micro Fokus. New additions to the client base include Seiko Epson, for which the team is acting as lead counsel regarding all corporate and general commercial matters in Costa Rica and Central America. In other work, Marco Solano and ‘experienced’ practice co-head John Aguilar-Quesada continue to assist Boeing with the establishment of its first subsidiary in Central America. The client roster also includes DowDupont, Johnson Controls and Ingenico Group. Mary Ann Drake is noted for her ‘profound knowledge’; founding partner and department co-head John Aguilar-Osborne and the recommended Esteban Agüero are other names to note.
