Distribution and Franchising Law in Puerto Rico
Through years of experience and highly developed advocacy skills, the trial attorneys of Adsuar Muñiz Goyco Seda & Pérez-Ochoa, P.S.C., have gained an impeccable reputation in the successful mediation, arbitration or litigation of distribution, sales representation and franchising claims in Puerto Rico and federal courts.
Helping Companies Navigate Puerto Rico's Unique Distribution Laws.
Puerto Rico's distribution and sales representation statutes are unique. While "Law 21" governs relationships between principals and their sales representatives and agents, "Law 75" regulates dealership relations between principals and their on-island distributors. These two statutes, together with abundant case law, provide complex frameworks to guide the commercial and business relations between principals, distributors, manufacturers and sales representatives, often leading to judicial claims and disputes.
The experienced lawyers at AMG are recognized for providing their clients – be they principals, dealers or sales agents – valuable counsel to help avert disputes and aggressive advocacy to successfully litigate court cases. The success of our distribution practice is evidenced by the large number of businesses in Puerto Rico and stateside who turn to us every day for assistance in handling their sales and distribution claims and questions.
Breadth of Knowledge to the Benefit of Our Clients.
While effective trial advocates, our attorneys are mindful of the client's business needs and objectives. Accordingly, we are known for regularly providing comprehensive advice and counsel on how to resolve the complications that surround contract negotiations, termination claims, exclusivity and territorial disputes, franchisee-franchisor controversies and impairment cases, often times avoiding unnecessary and protracted litigation or arbitration.
