Costa Rica > Dispute resolution

BLP‘s dispute resolution team, led by Mauricio Salas, is sought out by high-profile international clients for the most delicate and complex cases. In a recent example, department head and key associate Thelma Petrucci defended Dow Chemical in mass tort litigation related to a banana pesticide later associated with sterility and cancer in agricultural workers, which was eventually dismissed after several years of discussions. Giselle Reuben and Pedro Castro represented Sony in the prosecution of a piracy ring involved in illegal tampering of hardware and software reproduction. Pandora Americas, China Iron and Steel Association, and Jiangsu Shagang International Trade are also on the firm’s client list.

Under the leadership of Giselle Reuben, BLP‘s IP department regularly acts for international clients such as the Inter-American Development Bank, Scotiabank, Amazon and Unilever. In a recent work highlight, department head and up-and-coming associate León Weinstok advised Pandora Jewellery on a raid against counterfeit products infringing the client’s rights. Uri Weinstok was entrusted with handling more than 50 trade mark applications throughout Central America for H&M, and the team also assisted Uber Technologies with the notification process for a data breach and co-ordination with the Data Protection Agency in order to avoid any sanctions.
