Rafael Luna - Consortium Legal

Within: Tax

Undeniably one of the best tax practices in the country, the department at Consortium Legal distinguishes itself through its ‘in-depth business acumen’ and broad service offering, which includes advice on day-to-day tax matters, transfer pricing, tax planning and restructuring, and issues arising from the county’s free trade zone regime, as well as contentious tax matters involving administrative litigation against the tax authorities. Noted for its ‘sound judgement, preventive and objective risk evaluation’, the team regularly receives instructions from regional and international companies, including Globalvia, Petro Delta and Cognitiva. The practice is co-led by the very highly regarded Diego Salto and Rafael Luna; among on-going matters it provides comprehensive tax advice to regional heavyweight Cuestamoras on tax structuring, transactional tax matters and transfer pricing. Other work includes assisting Fifco with tax compliance and consultancy issues; advising Ultrapark on the restructuring process of its legal tax structure; and advising Walmart on tax, municipal and customs procedures related to its day-to-day operations and projects, both on an administrative and judicial level. Anayansi Mora and the recommended Cristina Sansonetti are other names to note.
