Corporate and Commercial

Clients of the firm describe its attorneys as “magnificent, proactive, extremely receptive,” and that they think like business partners, not only as legal advisers. These are some of the qualities Chambers underscores about the FERRERE team. The Corporate and Commercial practice has been recognized by the prestigious publication in the firm’s four jurisdictions.

A regional team of more than fifteen of the firm’s partners devoted entirely to Corporate and Commercial supervise more than eighty attorneys who, in turn, have the immediate support of professionals specializing in other areas.

The team members know their clients’ businesses and circumstances, and work with them in making strategic decisions. FERRERE assists companies on their day-to-day operations, on structuring and implementing complex deals, and also in extraordinary situations. It counsels shareholders in analyzing and organizing ventures. It drafts and negotiates local and international contracts, assists on bid processes, and on its clients’ relationships with the government. It tailors legal structures to its clients’ needs and to regulatory requirements.

The Corporate and Commercial practice serves major multinationals in diverse sectors, contributing to problem solving and facilitating their operations in Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay. Among others, it advises Abbott Laboratories, British American Tobacco, DirecTv, Iridium, ExxonMobil, IBM, MetLife, Microsoft, Nestlé, Petrobras, Schlumberger, Sanofi Aventis, Telefónica, Röhlig Logistics, Vale, Maersk, and Weyerhaeuser. Many of these companies have been clients of the firm for decades. An active network of international contacts enables FERRERE to respond to client queries and manage complex matters in different jurisdictions.
