What do we do?
SÁENZ & ASOCIADOS has established the Economic - Financial Department, with the aim of incorporating a specialized service in these areas, which complements the legal service it already provides to its clients; thus expanding the offer of a comprehensive service, in a single advisory entity, and throughout the Central American region.

We will accompany our clients in negotiation and mediation processes and in commercial arbitrations, where economic-financial assistance and advice is highly relevant, in that order, the Economic-Financial Department will join us in the work teams for the defense of our clients interests. This service can also be provided to other law firms or companies that require it.
We are also focusing our service in advising on tax and fiscal planning of companies, including small and medium-sized companies, and accompaniment and representation in tax and fiscal disputes, in administrative and judicial headquarters.
