Guevara & Gutierrez S.C. – Servicios Legales (“Guevara & Gutierrez”) was founded in 1989 with the objective of creating a law firm that would provide high quality, integral and specialized legal advice to clients.
From the outset the firm’s biggest and most important asset was the participation of carefully chosen attorneys, with the highest level academic credentials, considerable experience in their respective areas of practice as well as command of several languages.
In a few years Guevara & Gutierrez positioned itself as one of the most important law firms in Bolivia, both, from the point of view of the number of attorneys as well as from the point of view of the size and quality of its clients.
Today Guevara & Gutierrez has offices in La Paz and Santa Cruz (the two most important cities in Bolivia), as well as a network of associated law firms in other cities throughout the country.
The firm is composed of eight partners and approximately 18 associates. Guevara & Gutierrez has a policy of support and cooperation to its most promising associates to help them further their studies at the highest level universities abroad. The firm believes this is essential in order to be able to expand while maintaining the level of excellence achieved thus far in the services provided to clients.
As a result of this policy, Guevara & Gutierrez counts among its members with the highest number of Fulbright scholars of any law firm in Bolivia. In addition, most associates at the firm have worked as interns in highly reputed law firms abroad.
Finally, it is worthwhile pointing out that several of Guevara & Gutierrez’s partners have been selected as leaders in their respective areas of practice by specialized international publications and that the firm itself has been selected as Bolivian law firm of the year 2014.
