Legal power hub in Latin America_

CRESCO Legal Costa Rica has been established with the objective to create real bridges of business possibilities and opportunities from around the world into the Latin American region.

CRESCO Legal Costa Rica’s partners were the founders of TBO International Legal Consultants (2007), a leading boutique real estate and commercial law firm based in Costa Rica.

After more than two decades of professional practice, Adrián Obando and Alex Thompson (TBO founders), have witnessed and shared in success in this evolving and dynamic region.

As part of the international expansion that both CRESCO and TBO were intensively seeking, both law firms decided to create common objectives and work under the same name and quality of standards, to provide their mutual and future clients an international reach with the personalized service of a boutique law firm, creating CRESCO Legal Costa Rica, the global local firm.
