When clients find themselves facing disputes involving the places where people have made their home or their place of business it tends to strike a deeply personal chord. Effectively navigating these complex and visceral challenges in strata communities requires more than legal expertise — it involves empathy, tact, and pragmatism to identify practical solutions that bring everyone to the table.
Under the guidance of our senior lawyers, Juan Pablo works with clients to understand the problems and uncover their key issues, as well as their desired outcomes. He then works collaboratively with our team to research and develop strategies to meet those goals and present clients with all possible options to make an informed decision.
