Due to this change in direction, I did not put myself in a position to be at risk, both legally and financially. Their experience was brought to the table and my business got protected. I fully recommend GLC Abogados.“
I am pleased with the performance of you and your team, Carmen, Eugenia, and Dahiana.

San José, Costa Rica, June 30th 2016: After more than 16 years of specialization in foreign advisory and related activities required to install and/or operate companies in Costa Rica, GLC Abogados has been officially included in the exclusive list of legal service providers of CINDE.

Starting today GLC Abogados will be eligible by important multinational companies that seek the competitive advantages that Costa Rica has to offer to install their operations locally and to be able to assist them specifically in the Immigration Law area of practice. Our Immigration Division is directed by attorney Eugenia Víquez who has extensive knowledge and experience in an ample variety of processes and migratory situations.
As Managing Partner of GLC Abogados and as Executive Secretary of Inlaw Alliance of Law Firms I had the opportunity to get to know personally the Partners of law firm Calderón- Monge Asociados Estudio Jurídico located in:
11 calle 8-14 zona 1, oficina 28, Ciudad de Guatemala, Guatemala email@example.com Tel:+(502) 52180317
I was able to have a conversation with the Calderón attorneys at law and confirmed their ample knowledge of the legal and business environment in Guatemala.

Eugenia Viquez Abogada/Attorney at Law and GLC Abogados/Law Firm for all the very professional, honest and timely support you have provided to me with all my legal dealings here in Costa Rica. Because of the informative and legal support you and the GLC Law Firm have provided me; the sometimes confusing Costa Rican legal process was made understandable and effortless.Continue reading →
“GLC Abogados has been a great help in launching our new company in Costa Rica. They take everything hard out of running a business.

Panamanian IBCs (International Business Corporations) have traditionally been vital legal vehicles for the offshore industry specially because of their confidentiality. It is well known that Panama is one of the last jurisdictions in the world to offer what is known as bearer shares.
Bearer shares are the opposite from the more widespread Nominative Shares, and the first ones are crucial for global investors looking for regulatory advantages available offshore.
So it’s vital that if you are a beneficiary of a Panamanian corporation that was incorporated prior to May 4th, 2015, must take one of the following actions before December 31s, 2015:
Substitute the current bearer shares for nominative shares or,
Place the bearer shares with a registered Custodian
If such actions are not addressed will be considered delinquent.
