Who's Who Legal Litigation: Lawyers

Alejandro Pignataro (LLM in American law with a concentration in international business practice, Boston University, 2003) is a partner at Pignataro Abogados (Costa Rica), a boutique corporate law firm committed to providing top-level legal advice to a select group of corporate and individual clients.

Alejandro has over 15 years of experience advising foreign and national corporations, financial institutions and individuals with their business dealings in Costa Rica.

Alejandro’s practice focuses mainly on corporate M&A and asset tracing and recovery.

As a corporate M&A lawyer, Alejandro advises mainly multinational corporations doing business in the Latin America and Caribbean Basin region, serving as their lead counsel, coordinating with their local counsel in each jurisdiction where they do business, via a strong network of law firms.

Mr Pignataro also frequently serves as local counsel to foreign receiverships, liquidators, government agencies and private victims, in asset tracing and recovery cases in several jurisdictions. In such matters, Alejandro directs the domestic legal proceedings, interfacing with the enforcement agencies involved. Among the most commonly executed tasks in these matters, Mr Pignataro leads local investigative efforts, gathers and secures evidence, and locates and seizes assets.

Alejandro has been appointed as the Costa Rican member for ICC Fraudnet, the world’s leading asset tracing and recovery network as per Chambers & Partners, and he has participated as a host and a panelist on international asset tracing and recovery conferences and events. Mr Pignataro has also been recognised by Who’s Who Legal as an expert in asset recovery for several consecutive years. 

WWL says: Alejandro Pignataro draws widespread praise from international sources who consider him a world-class litigator.
