FERRERE has advised clients in this sector during the critical phases of the regulatory changes that have transformed educational and cultural activities over the past thirty years. Its tax-specialist lawyers have negotiated, and when it was unavoidable litigated, many of the critical questions pertaining to the constitutional tax exemptions and incentives that apply to the sector.

FERRERE represents non-profit and for-profit local and international educational institutions. The firm’s philanthropic activities, directed toward fostering greater social integration, involve supporting community-interest academic endeavors, education and social promotion at the base of the social pyramid, and international university scholarships for top-ranking students.

FERRERE advises recognized institutions such as Universidad ORT, Berlitz, the leading international institution for the teaching of English and other languages, the Alliance Française, the most widely recognized institution for the teaching of French, and Fundación Torres García, one of the most dynamic of the arts-related cultural institutions.
