Marvin's brief biography
Marvin Segura is an experienced Costa Rican attorney, with an LL.M. from New York University and a Juris Doctor degree from UELD in Costa Rica. His experience in corporate law has been extensive, as General Consel for the biggest pharmaceutical distributor in Costa Rica, he started to acknowledge the need to develop a service that could provide to the company a lower cost service, which would give them the ability to increase the number of resources on work´s high peaks without having to increase the company´s headcount. With that in mind and by the request of a number of clients with US headquarters, he co-founded NextLaw in 2009, as the first Costa Rican LPO company, and has been exclusively dedicated since then to provide LPO services to companies located in the Americas and Europe.
