Legal market overview

The Paraguayan legal market has to some extent been experiencing its own developmental spurt during these recent years of the economy’s growth with many undergoing a process of generational hand-over. In so far as this has also been a process of modernisation, one original impulse was the arrival over a decade of the then Uruguayan -today multi-jurisdictional firm Ferrere, which along with the well-established and innovative Estudio Jurídico Gross Brown (the first of the local firm’s to complete the handover and modernisation process); unsurprisingly, it is these firm’s that tend to predominate in the banking and finance as well as corporate and M&A areas, although not without strong competition, particularly from the likes of Berkemeyer Attorneys & Counselors and Vouga Abogados, which both continue to gain momentum. Other notable full-service firms are Moreno Ruffinelli & Asociados (from whose ranks came the country’s last Attorney General, Rodolfo Moreno, who has sought to move judicial reform and professionalization up the political agenda); Olmedo Abogados, Mersan Abogados and Peroni Sosa Tellechea Burt & Narvaja. There are also numerous excellent boutiques: Parquet & Asociados is developing out of its niche focus but remains highly regarded for administrative law matters; SEA Abogados y Consultores Ambientales and Ebro - Firma Jurídica are noted for their environmental expertise; while Irún & Villamayor excels in labour matters. Zacarias & Fernández and Estudio Nora Ruoti & Asociados are recommended for IP and tax law respectively.
