Hulbert Volio Montero was born as a Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm, providing the country with specialized services in complex judicial and arbitration cases in civil and commercial law. With time, multi-national clients approached the firm with diverse needs which allowed the growth and opening of the following areas of work: (i) Banking Law & Finance, (ii) Competition & Antitrust, (iii) Corporate / M&A, (iv) Dispute Resolution, (v) Energy Law & Renewables, (vi) Intellectual Property, (vii) Litigation & Arbitration, (viii) Public Law, Public Procurement and Regulation, (ix) Real Estate Investment and Development, (x) Telecommunications, Media & Technologies. The combination of experts in substantive law and dispute resolution provides a complete service with outstanding risk control in every transaction. Also, the firm offers a personal, innovative, and affordable service.
This evolution comes hand in hand with the incorporation into the firm of two new partners that increase the concentration of knowledge and experience that strengthen our work.
