Within: Tax

Barros & Errázuriz’s ‘highly accurate team’ is recommended for its design and implementation of national and international tax structuring strategies; other areas of strength include defending tax claims and litigation before the Internal Revenue Service, as well as in court; and due diligence for corporate mergers, acquisitions and purchases, and public and private bids. The practice advises Chilefilms, an audio-visual conglomerate, with its tax structure in Chile; assists regional private equity Linzor Capital Partners, which focuses on Latin America’s mid-market, with its tax issues; and provides Harvard Management Company with tax advice on investment and financing structures in Chile. Contentious highlights include acting for Compañía Puerto Coronel in a land tax claim before the tax courts. Fernando Barros, Carola Trucco and María Teresa Cremaschi are the names to note, while the key senior associates are Tomás Kovacevic and Evelyn Sepúlveda.
