Rodrigo Rivera - Guevara & Gutiérrez S.C

Within: Dispute resolution

The ‘highly capable’, ‘multi-disciplinary’ team at Guevara & Gutiérrez S.Cworks very hard for its clients’ and is ‘very honest and professional in all senses’. The practice, which prides itself on its administrative and constitutional litigation capabilities, frequently represents Cervecería Boliviana Nacional in antitrust litigation: Rodrigo Rivera recently defended the beverages company in Supreme Court competition proceedings and against lawsuits brought by competitors such as Amazónica. Arbitration is another strong suit: Rivera acted for Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua in a $40m international arbitration brought by Turkish cement group Çimsa. Rivera co-leads the practice with Santa Cruz-based labour litigator Primitivo Gutiérrez, who also has arbitration experience. Ramiro Guevara is a renowned international arbitrator; associates José Bernal and Zoya Galarza, who is a competition expert, are also recommended.
