Principally located in the firm’s Santa Cruz office, Guevara & Gutiérrez S.C’s labour team is led by senior partner Primitivo Gutiérrez, although the La Paz-based Jaime Lora is also active in the sector. The team is particularly strong on the regularisation of property rights, the process whereby non-compliant land and asset-transfers are given a proper legal footing; the team also represents clients in associated litigation. Additionally, it regularly advises clients on property acquisitions and disposals worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and occasionally acts for clients in construction-related dispute resolution. Ana Lora is a strong senior associate.
