Firm Overview:
GUFA LAW is one of the most renowned and prestigious law firms in Honduras, with an exceptional expertise in corporate, tax, labour, administrative, mining and energy fields. Founded in 1974, the firm has been in the Honduran market for more than 40 years, cultivating a legal brand that inspires experience, excellence and work ethics. The firm’s international recognition granted them the honor to be the Lex Mundi exclusive law firm in Honduras and the perfect allied for anyone who wants to invest and start a business in Central America.

GUFA Law’s way of performing legal services is developed with six values at its core: ethics, teamwork, transparency, respect for people and clients and tradition and dynamism. The first value is, without no doubt, the one that guides and inspires all the other values.

The firm keeps on improving – year after year – their effectiveness and customer service indicators, recognising how important it is to place oneself in someone else’s shoes and deliver the best legal service possible. Since the very first moment, clients will realise that professionalism, efficiency and quickness can be accomplished if things are done properly and by the right people. GUFA Law believes that their teams should have, not only the best and the highest valued lawyers in the market, but also people you can rely on in this country. Every client is treated equally and in a personalised manner, and at GUFA Law it is a priority to make sure that each person or company is given the finest attention throughout their/its whole legal process.

Finally, thanks to the closeness, transparency and ethical manners through which everything is done, clients find in GUFA Law the firm they go-to when they are looking for advice, investment opportunities, strategic meetings or certain connections in fields that they aren’t familiar with in Honduras.
