Our Practice Areas

At POLITANK*, we see litigation as an extension of our government affairs practice and as an integral part of our clients’ strategies in achieving their goals. We advise on possible legal challenges to statues and regulations and anticipate constitutional arguments on proposed government action and the effects these could have on our clients’ businesses. As part of our practice, we manage complex matters from a wide array of constitutional, statutory, and regulatory issues. Our experience enables us to develop novel legal theories from the onset of the dispute and preserving them for appeal. Our team has had experience, among others, in the following areas:

*
Antitrust: civil litigation involving illegal tying, monopolies, and other antitrust litigation disputes; investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and the P.R. Office of Monopolistic Affairs.
*
Appellate Litigation: helping clients pursue remedies in federal and state appeals. Our team has performed appellate work on behalf of the firm’s diverse clientele as well as for clients who hire us for the first time on appeal.
*
Commercial Litigation: Our team has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial and contractual matters.
*
Constitutional and Civil Rights Litigation: Challenging government action is our team’s bread-and-butter, and is an integral part of a successful government affairs strategy.
*
Intellectual Property Litigation: Our team has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in trademark, trade secrets, non-competition/non-disclosure litigation before local and federal courts. Our team regularly works together and collaborates with our clients’ stateside counsel in order secure the best outcome possible.

Puerto Rico is a pro-employee jurisdiction filled with landmines for the unsuspecting employer. Our team at POLITANK* counsels employers on employment issues so they can proactively avoid litigation and minimize liability exposure.

We regularly advise employers on human resources issues including dismissals and layoffs, suspensions, and questions regarding wages and hours. We also help employers with employee handbooks, drug testing programs, affirmative action plans, and the myriad employment policies required under local law.

We also represent employers in employment litigation before federal and state courts, agencies, and arbitration panels. This includes representing employers in wage and hour disputes, non-competition and restrictive covenant enforcement, and employee raiding and defection, trade secret, employment tort, employee discharge, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, ADEA, and other discrimination, OSHA, ERISA, labor, and other employment matters.

At the request of employers, we provide in-house seminars to supervisors and managers on how to effectively apply employment policies and deal with personnel issues. We also keep employers informed through timely client alerts on important developments in labor and employment law that affect their businesses.

POLITANK* assists its clients in finding and negotiating opportunities in the private sector to further their interests and achieve their business goals. At POLITANK*, we also help our clients achieve critical business objectives by providing legal advice on the statutory and regulatory requirements in Puerto Rico, allowing them to make well-informed decisions while developing business strategies to successfully accomplish their goals.

Our team’s experience and thorough understanding of Puerto Rico’s corporate statutory framework allows us to assist our clients on wide array of issues from providing day-to-day advice on matters of corporate governance; to evaluating, structuring and negotiating complex business transactions; to out-of-the-box solutions to complex matters related to the negotiation and interpretation of contracts, and general corporate law.

Our team is highly experienced in the processes necessary to protect our clients’ trademarks and intellectual property before federal and local agencies and, if necessary, before the courts. We also advise our clients on the registrability of trademarks, logos, and designs, including trade dress protection, allowing them to better invest their marketing budget.
