Gutiérrez, Hernández & Pauly (GHP) was founded as a law firm in 1976. During the past four decades we have offered a wide range of specialized legal services to local and foreign clients operating in Costa Rica.
We are proud of our team’s professional capacity, which is built on a combination of our partners’ experience and our associates’ proactivity and specialization. We strive to help our clients succeed and seek by becoming their strategic partners that ensure they reach their goals safely.
Our clients entrust us with sensitive and complex matters because our services are customized, efficient, proactive, and bound by high ethical standards. These traits have positioned GHP as one of the country’s leading boutique law firms.
With the incorporation of the former deputy (2018-2022), agronomist and lawyer Zoila Volio Pacheco to the firm, our services have expanded with a specialized branch in consultancies and issues pertinent to Law No.10113 “Cannabis Law for medicinal and therapeutic use and hemp for food and industrial use”. Volio was the drafter and proponent of the project and is concentrating on legal advice on its possible application pending the regulation.
In addition to its headquarters in San José, GHP has offices in Tamarindo, one of the beaches with the highest tourist growth in the province of Guanacaste, where general advice is offered to companies with interests in that area and that specialize in real estate development.
