Lawyer Rankings(Next Generation Partners)
The practice group at Baker McKenzie S.A.S. is ‘very responsive’ and ‘provides an exceptional service’, principally to multinational companies in Colombia and – via the firm’s office network – elsewhere in Latin America; it is particularly known for the design of optimal transfer-pricing policies between related parties in different jurisdictions. The firm is also known for its involvement in the oil-and-gas industry, including tax advice on M&A transactions and tax structuring issues. Leading lawyer Ciro Meza, who is well regarded by peers and clients alike, heads the 13-strong practice group, with ‘top-notch, upcoming expert’ Rodrigo Castillo leading the wealth management area. Recent headline mandates included acting as lead counsel to Brookfield Infrastructure Group on its $560m acquisition of a controlling stake in Gas Natural (a transaction that required three public auction phases and a tender offer), and successfully representing AES Chivor & Co in a suit against a DIAN resolution concerning the refund of stamp duty contributions. Other mandates included advising Altra Investments on the sale of plastic-packaging solutions provider Proenfar (and all its Latin-American subsidiaries in Mexico, Argentina and Peru) to Weener Plastics. Senior associates Carlos Gómez and Daniel Botero (whose practice is primarily finance focused) and associate Daniela Lievano-Uribe are also noted. Clients include ExxonMobil, Chevron, Airbnb, Amazon, Noble Energy, PepsiCo and Google.
