Investigations and Information Management 

At Delgado & Fernández, LLC, we help businesses manage their risk and liability exposure. In today’s business environment, this often means two things: (1) conducting internal investigations to assess liability exposure; and (2) managing the massive amounts of data you accumulate in your daily operations. A Puerto Rico investigations and information management law attorney from our team can help you meet both of these needs to keep looking toward the horizon without worrying about what is behind you.

Our attorneys help our clients assess and identify legal and compliance risks in multiple areas. We learn about our clients’ businesses, and we think about ways to reduce regulatory exposure. We help clients design internal compliance and control programs that address the organization’s risks.

When you partner with us, you can expect a Puerto Rico investigations and information management law attorney from our firm to work closely with you to develop a program that meets your needs and fits seamlessly into your operations. In addition, we work with our clients to ensure that the program is fully implemented, assisting you and your people with getting the controls you need into place.

Internal Investigations and Information Management

There are many different reasons why you might consider conducting an internal investigation:

  • Specific issues have come to light, and you want to understand what happened, assess the damage, and get out in front of the problem so that it can be effectively managed.
  • You want to assess the controls you currently have in place and see what needs to be changed or improved.
  • You suspect fraud or other malfeasance and need to identify the source.
  •  You want to ensure that you are in compliance with all governmental regulations and industry standards.

The key to a successful investigation is knowing where to look, what questions to ask, and how to get the answers you need. The challenge for most businesses is finding the time and personnel necessary to conduct the investigation. This is where a Puerto Rico investigations and information management law attorney can help.

We regularly assist our clients in conducting internal investigations and advise them on practical issues such as managing confidentiality and privilege, data protection, and preparing for litigation.

Most clients need a lawyer to represent them in court or serve as counsel for a transaction. Other clients, however, operate in spaces that require forward-looking representation.

Whether you need someone to track important legislation or need representation, a Puerto Rico government affairs and legislation tracking law attorney from Delgado & Fernández, LLC can deliver results.

Legislative Tracking

In today’s economy, no one wants to be caught by surprise. This means that you need to keep an eye on the horizon for any legislative changes that could affect how you operate.

A Puerto Rico government affairs and legislation tracking law attorney can identify legislative trends and monitor proposed legislation that may interest you. This entails tracking the legislation from its inception, through committee, and onwards. We analyze amendments to the legislation to help you understand how it changes the original legislation. We provide updates to our clients in real-time so that we can take action before it’s too late. In short, we help our clients see into the future so that they can adapt should the legislation become law.

Dedicated Advocacy at All Levels of Government

We work with clients who need counsel and advocacy in matters before governmental bodies, agencies, and regulatory boards. This includes compliance hearings and otherwise adversarial proceedings as well as getting you in front of the decision-makers on issues that are important to you. If you are required to testify, we work closely with our clients to ensure they are thoroughly prepared.

Whatever your needs may be, we take an aggressive, results-oriented approach. It can be intimidating having to face a government agency or regulatory board, but a Puerto Rico government affairs and legislation tracking law attorney can level the playing field and help you get a fair result.

Intellectual Property

We handle all of our clients’ intellectual property-related needs, from registration and portfolio management to licensing and litigation. Our lawyers are able to assist with trademark, trade secret, trade dress, copyright and patent matters throughout Puerto Rico, on the U.S. mainland and in other jurisdictions around the world.

Many business owners and executives wait far longer than they should to protect their companies’ intellectual property assets. This leaves their intellectual property assets exposed, and it can lead to both loss of exclusive rights and significant loss of value. Conversely, a proactive approach to intellectual property protection can add value, and can put companies in a position to leverage their intangible assets in new and innovative ways. If you have questions about what your company can (and should) be doing to protect its intellectual property, or if your company needs legal representation for license negotiations or an intellectual property-related dispute, we encourage you to contact us to learn more.


We also provide comprehensive legal representation for our corporate clients in all insurance-related matters. This includes evaluating coverage needs, investigating potential claims, prosecuting first-party and third-party claims for coverage, and litigating coverage disputes as necessary. While insurance coverage is a key risk mitigation tool for companies of all sizes, companies must make informed decisions and be prepared to take legal action to enforce their right to coverage when necessary.

Distribution and Franchising

Our Corporate Practice Group has particular experience in the areas of distribution and franchising. The distribution and franchising relationships have several unique aspects, and they are subject to unique legal and regulatory requirements, so experienced legal representation is critical. We assist our distribution and franchising clients with financing, leasing and other commercial matters as well.

Non-Profit Organizations

Non-profit organizations must carefully address a variety of corporate structuring and recordkeeping requirements in order to establish and preserve their tax-exempt status. We work with several non-profits across Puerto Rico, providing corporate services as well as assistance with cybersecurity, government affairs, intellectual property, insurance and other matters. If you own or operate a non-profit in Puerto Rico, we can work with you to identify your organization’s legal needs and develop a cost-effective strategy for meeting these needs on an ongoing basis.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Our team guides clients through complex transactions, ensuring seamless processes and minimizing risks. Whether you’re involved in mergers, acquisitions, or asset transactions, our team can help. With extensive experience in handling M&A across various industries, we understand the intricacies involved in such transactions. From due diligence to negotiations and deal structuring, we protect our clients’ interests while facilitating successful outcomes.
