An Efficient, Cost-Effective Solution To Your Employment And Labor Law Needs
Every business needs access to legal advice that is both prompt and reliable. In-house counsel typically fulfills these needs, but most businesses in Puerto Rico cannot afford a full-time lawyer as their internal counsel for labor, employment and benefit matters.
Many businesses try to approximate dedicated in-house counsel by relying on general legal practitioners or retaining the services of a large or mid-size law firms, that typically bill at high hourly rates. Other employers try to control costs by retaining the services of non-attorney HR professionals. In all these cases there are always tradeoffs between cost, knowledge/experience and ongoing availability. Moreover, in the case of HR professionals, they cannot provide legal advice and the communications or information disclosed are not protected by the attorney-client privilege. Thankfully, a better solution exists for businesses in Puerto Rico.
The Capó Law Office was established to address the unanswered business need for counseling and representation by a labor and employment law attorney with extensive counseling and litigation experience, but on a low monthly fixed rate basis or at a significantly discounted hourly rate for regular clients. Frequently, these services can be utilized while maintaining the client’s other law firm for matters not covered by the arrangement with the Capó Law Office.
