Even though the Bendaña family legal tradition goes back to the last decade of the 19th century, Bendaña & Bendaña has its origin in the incorporation in 1950 of our founder and Director, Dr Julián Bendaña-Silva, to the Law Firm of Dr Vicente Navas Arana, his friend, colleague and former University Professor. Dr Julián Bendaña Silva had graduated in 1948 with a Doctorate in Law from Universidad Nacional de Nicaragua and Dr Navas Arana (1900-1985) was one of the most prominent attorneys in Nicaragua.
