Shared Value/Pro Bono

Creating shared value through active citizenship and local progress

What we do everyday can produce an overall positive impact in our community. At Batalla, we have an obligation to grow and prosper in an ethical manner not only for the benefit of our clients and our team, but also the community around us.

Our goal is to simultaneously generate social and economic value through active citizenship and local progress. We do this by selecting projects and activities that have substance and impact, draw upon our own assets and skills and are aligned with our values.

We are proud to be recognized as a national leader in Corporate Social Responsibility by the Costa Rican Bar Association and to be consistently awarded with the Pro Bono Leading Light recognition as a Pro Bono leader in Costa Rica by The Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice and Latin Lawyer.
