Who's Who Legal Central America - Banking, Finance & Projects

Arturo Apéstegui is an executive director at EY Law. He has extensive legal experience in the corporate and financial world. He has led teams in multiple mergers and acquisitions, both local and cross-border and has over 25 years of experience advising local and international banks doing business in Costa Rica.

Many of its clients are franchisees, licensees or distributors of international companies, so he has developed an intimate knowledge of this area of law as well. 

Mr Apéstegui has also advised real estate developers at all stages of their business, from financing and buying the land to selling the finished products. Given his direct and close relationship with his clients, he has also become their trusted personal adviser and thus has worked with them and their families in the structuring and implementation of their family protocols and personal succession plans.

Mr Apéstegui studied at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC with a master of laws degree (May 1991; Fulbright scholar). His graduate thesis was “Structuring and Financing a Corporation in a Developing Country: The Costa Rican Case”.

He also studied at the Autonomous University of Central America in San José, Costa Rica, graduating with a licenciate degree (cum laude) in law (October, 1989).

He is a member of the Colegio de Abogados de Costa Rica, the International Bar Association and the Centre for International Legal Studies in Austria (honorary fellow, 2004–).

Mr Apéstegui has been named as a “leading lawyer” in International Financial Law Review in mergers and acquisitions (2012-2015).

WWL says: Arturo Apéstegui Barzuna is “well known for his experience in banking and finance” according to respondents, an area in which he is considered a real specialist.
