Bulló Abogados

Bulló Abogados’ banking practice is particularly well versed in regulatory matters but it also advises lenders, underwriters, issuers and borrowers on lending, debt capital markets and debt restructuring transactions. Gustavo Torassa is a key contact and recently advised trophy client HSBC Bank Argentina on Argentina’s voluntary tax compliance programme. However, the firm suffered the departure of Francisco Roggero for Zang, Bergel & Viñes Abogados in June 2018. Other representative clients include Banco Comafi, Banco Itaú Argentina and Greylock Capital Management.

Corporate and M&A
Corporate and M&A - ranked: tier 4

Bulló Abogados

Bulló Abogados has a well-established reputation for its corporate work in the insurance field – in line with the firm’s top-tier practice in that area – but it also deserves recognition for a strong record in the broader financial services sector generally, where it advises a diverse portfolio of banks and institutional investors. Recent matters saw the team advise Mapfre Reinsurance on the sale of a portion of its insurance business to Grupo Sura. Well regarded, Gustavo Torassa is the key contract, but Francisco Roggero departed for Zang, Bergel & Viñes Abogados in June 2018.

Bulló Abogados’ formidable expertise in class actions is a distinguishing feature of its dispute resolution practice; it also shines in product liability, financial services and telecoms-related matters. On the class action front, the firm’s top-tier insurance offering has secured it key roles in 32 different consumer class actions regarding insurance issues. Among its recent telecoms matters is the defence of Telefónica de Argentina in a case brought by the government seeking to recover money received during its privatisation.

Insurance
Insurance - ranked: tier 1

Bulló Abogados

Simply put, Bulló Abogados is ‘out-and-out brilliant’ and its lawyers are roundly praised for providing ‘high-level commercial advice’. Insurance is a firm sweet spot and the department’s ‘broad and in-depth knowledge of the industry’ and ‘deep bench of experts’ place it ‘at the top of the market’, according to sources. The practice group has established itself as a one-stop-shop for insurance matters and its experience spans insurance claims handling, regulatory issues and corporate transactions – for many of the major domestic and global giants in the sector, such as AXA, Chubb and Allianz. Carlos Alberto Estebenet is a ‘highly specialised expert’ and leads a team that also includes Javier Santiere (‘great ability to make connections’), Daniel Guffanti and Daniel Russo. On the contentious side, the firm represented Mapfre Argentina Seguros in a $1.5m shipping-related claim. In a regulatory highlight, the firm represented the Argentine Association of Insurance Companies in negotiations with the state supervisory body regarding the future Argentine insurance and reinsurance legal framework.
