BLP announces an alliance with ANS Legal specialists.

June, 2018

BLP has the pleasure to announce that from the first of June, ANS Legal joins our intrepid team of top attorneys. ANS is a boutique law firm founded in 2004, conceived as providers of high-quality legal services to a select group of clients, with a long-term vision as strategic allies. Through the years, ANS has been a frequent counterpart sharing legal work with BLP on behalf of mutual clients. From such proximate experience, we have observed first-hand the capacity and excellence of the firm’s professionals, but more importantly, recognized in them a culture of shared values as well as a vision of becoming true partners of our clients, and allies in their business.

The professional team that joins BLP is made up of three renowned lawyers: Andrés Waisleder, Catalina Soto and Adriana Giralt. Andrés joins BLP as Special Counsel, while Catalina and Adriana join as Senior Associate and Associate, respectively.

This trio has led the development of some of the most important, well-regarded hotel and tourism projects, corporate and industrial parks, commercial centers, and free zones in the country. The group has extensive experience in providing corporate advisory services and devising legal strategies for domestic and foreign companies.

Along with the induction of Andrés, Catalina and Adriana, we have invited Fernando Vargas Cullell, founder of ANS, to join the Board of Directors of BLP Abogados. Fernando is a professional of the highest stature who, before he founded ANS in 2004, practiced law for two decades as a partner of Odio & Raven, specializing in corporate and financial law. Fernando has held positions on Boards of Directors and Executive Committees of various corporations, such as ATH Costa Rica, Corporación de Supermercados Unidos, Grupo Financiero Improsa, Hotelera Cali, Marina de Herradura, Sinergo Development Group, and ILG Logistics.

With open arms, BLP welcomes the newest players to our team of All-Stars. We are convinced that the assimilation of such added capability keeps us at the forefront in attracting the best legal talent and will allow us to consolidate and attract new clients and business opportunities.
