About

Provided by Casellas Alcover & Burgos, P.S.C.

What CAB does well is litigation and litigation prevention. CAB has a strong litigation team of more than ten lawyers, paralegals, and staff qualified and experienced to handle complex litigation at all levels in the Puerto Rico and federal courts and arbitrations. 

CAB has remained a tight and small contingent of attorneys by choice. It has been an effective solution to guarantee a leader's direct involvement and supervision of cases. At CAB, the most senior attorneys write their motions and briefs, write discovery requests, prepare and take depositions, and try cases. 

CAB's litigation group has a strong and proven track record of winning federal jury trials, bench trials in the local courts, appeals, and arbitrations in commercial cases with emphasis in contract claims, distribution laws, health care, and intellectual property. Many of the cases entrusted to CAB are bet-the-company or cases of first impression, especially those under Puerto Rico's Dealer's Contract Act No. 75 and health law.
