Banking & Finance

Clients lavish praise upon practice head Diego Rodríguez for his expertise in the banking sector. His work includes advising New Zealand Farming on a USD30 million bond offering, and structuring the first guaranty trust fund used in Uruguay as collateral to a USD16 million USA bank loan.


Managing partner Andrés Cerisola earns plaudits for his client-oriented approach to cases. Sources value his efficiency: “Andrés often takes only three or four days to do what others would take months to complete.” He is also a key driving force behind the firm's growing working relationships with Indian companies investing in the region. Practice head Martín Cerruti has a well-established corporate practice and led the team which handled the Uruguayan aspects of CNOOC's USD3.1 billion acquisition of a 50% stake in Argentine oil and gas company Bridas. María Laura Ramón impresses clients with her commercial expertise, and sources highlight that her fluent English and former experience at a US law firm give her a certain edge over her competitors in the local market. Sadly in July 2010, the firm suffered the unexpected and tragic loss of founding partner Daniel Ferrere. A former managing partner at the firm, he had latterly dedicated much time to managing Ferrere's international arm, Ferrere Internacional, and co-ordinated the workflow between the firm's offices in Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Intellectual Property

Clients single out practice head Agustín Mayer West as a skilled lawyer with an active profile in the IP market. Although he has a broad practice which covers a range of IP matters, he is perhaps best known for his patents expertise. He is representing two local high-profile composers in an ongoing plagiarism action against the Spanish arm of a leading global record label.
