Harneys adds to Montevideo-based Latin America team
Harneys is pleased to announce the expansion of its legal team in Montevideo.
Lucía Corradi, who previously worked with Ogier in Montevideo and the British Virgin Islands, joined the firm this month. Lucía brings a wealth of experience and expertise in BVI and Cayman Islands law across key product and service areas including corporate and commercial, trusts, private client, and investment funds.
Marco Martins, head of Harneys’ Latin America group, commented: “Harneys is recognised as a leader in Latin America. Our level of service and responsiveness to clients, both institutional and individual, is unmatched and as a result we continue to grow our business and win work across the region. Lucía will be a critical component in continuing to improve our offering to our clients and having someone of her experience and standing is critical to supporting our ongoing growth and delivering the level of client service for which Harneys is known.”
Lucía commented: “I am delighted to be with Harneys and to have the opportunity to work with the firm’s many outstanding clients in the region. Harneys is a leading brand in Latin America and the first choice for offshore work. I am very pleased to be a part of a team that is dedicated to meeting and exceeding clients’ expectations.”
Harneys has been active in Latin America for decades but with the opening of the firm’s Montevideo office in 2010 and the appointment of a permanent representative in Brazil in 2011 the firm is in a strong position to serve its growing client base throughout the region.
Harneys’ Latin America group consists of lawyers in Montevideo, Sao Paulo, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands and London. The group assists Latin America clients who wish to use offshore structures to accomplish their commercial objectives, whether they are inward-facing, outward-facing or domestic in nature.
