A personal touch. We offer the personal, one-on-one relationship that you deserve and which only a boutique firm can provide. Your single point of contact is the attorney actually working for you, and who is intimately familiar with you and your needs.
A difference. A difference to your bottom line. We are experienced and lean, and are therefore effective and efficient. We will help you maximize your investment in counsel, and can offer suitable, tailored solutions that include alternate-fee arrangements such as subscriptions, fixed or task-based billing, outcome or value-based billing, and/or reverse contingencies.
A fresh perspective. Every trial is unique and legal questions are fact-specific. You don't want cookie-cutter answers or strategies. We think outside the box and offer creative strategies to accomplish your objectives.
International reach. Our legal system is a hybrid civil and common law, and we practice in English and Spanish. Our knowledge of both legal traditions and our fluency in both languages enables us to serve as your bridge to Latin America.
The Puerto Rico courts have continued to recognize that the duty to defend is separate and distinct from the duty to indemnify. For the insured, this means that you may be entitled to a defense even if in the end the policy may likely not cover the outcome. For an insurer, this means that just because a duty to defend has been triggered, it does not mean it is on the hook for any outcome. Whether you are a policyholder, or an insurer, know your rights.
At Colón & Colón, P.S.C., we have fought for the Puerto Rico Supreme Court to recognize the validity and enforceability of hold-harmless clauses, including those where a defense is owed. The underlying facts are important though; if you are owed a defense, we can help leverage the facts to support your claim and present your case persuasively. Do not underestimate how much you can save, because the costs of defending a claim may end up costing you a whole lot more than you expected.
