Zurcher Odio & Raven Abogados

Our firm

For over 85 years we have created the leading law firm in Costa Rica, where tradition, innovation and excellence converge. Our structure and vision allow us to be considered as the traditional firm in our country, with the capacity to adapt to changing demands on behalf of the market and our clients for more than eight decades. We carefully choose the matters and clients we represent. Our work teams consist of a balanced relationship between partners and associates, enabling us to focus on our client’s matters with greater attention, more experience and sophistication, carefully designating the professionals necessary for each matter, always providing the best possible service and legal advice.

Our practice

Our clients are looking for a firm they can entrust all their legal matters to. We aim to become that solution, that partner tasked with assisting our clients through each of their businesses and legal acts, providing excellent service in all areas we work in. This is attained by putting our clients at the heart of everything we do, and instilling in our team that spirit of service, agility and efficiency that has characterized us for over 85 years.
