Reymond & Cía has its origins in one of Chile’s most traditional law firms, founded in 1875 as Aldunate y Cía. Today, its name stands as heir to that legacy; one of the top consultant firms in the construction, public works concessions and infrastructure sectors, thanks largely to outstanding results in those industries.

The firm is headed by Alfonso Reymond and Rodrigo Riquelme Yáñez. Since 2005, their offices have been located in the heart of Santiago’s legal world: 40 El Golf Street.

Members of the firm are known for practicing complex and specialized litigation in High Courts and arbitrational procedures, both nationally and internationally, and even advising other law firms in and out of the country.

Reymond & Cía’s work in high complexity negotiations and consulting has positioned them as one of the leading firms in the construction, infrastructure, real estate and public works concessions sectors in terms of experience and prestige.

The more than 16 lawyers working at the firm today are specialists in their respective fields, possess solid professional and academic backgrounds and come from Chile’s best law schools. They maintain a connection to that world by publishing in law reviews and journals on subjects like civil, constitutional and administrative law, among others.

The firm encourages its talent to seek advancement through postgraduate studies or work with companies in their field outside the legal profession, always with a mind to ultimately return to it. All told, Reymond & Cía remains a high-level ‘boutique’ law firm, firmly steered by its partners down a road of continued tradition, progress and excellence.

  • Confidentiality Under Renewed Focus

    The UAE federal government has recently issued a raft of important legislation, addressing and in many ways updating areas of law that are key to businesses in the jurisdiction.

Both the New Banking Law and the New AML Law repeal and replace the previous legislation on their respective subjects. Importantly, the New Banking Law and the New AML Law have together enhanced the protection afforded to confidential information under UAE law, in particular where financial and legal service providers and their customers and clients are concerned.
