Civil & Commercial Litigation
Puerto Rico Civil and Commercial Litigation and Trials Practice Group
Since courtroom practice in Puerto Rico is unique, with proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit conducted in English, and proceedings in Puerto Rico’s Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, lower courts and administrative agencies are conducted in Spanish, our trial lawyers provide skilled representation in either judicial system in both Spanish and English.
