Jaime TrujilloBaker McKenzie S.A.S.

The practice group at Baker McKenzie S.A.S. has ‘unrivalled knowledge’ of banking and securities law; 2018 highlight mandates saw a team led by ‘excellent’ practice co-head Ricardo Trejos advise Canada’s Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP) on a $140m investment in real estate investment PE vehicle Fondo Inmobiliario Colombia, managed by its fiduciary subsidiary. In other work, the team continues to advise Brookfield Infrastructure Group on the financing of its acquisition of Gas Natural. The department, while small, has been strengthened notably: April 2018 saw the arrival as partner of Andrés Crump from Brookfield Asset Management; he now co-leads the practice in conjunction with Trejos and highly regarded acting global chair Jaime Trujillo. Subsequently, in October 2018, Sebastian Boada was hired from the Office of Financial Superintendence; both he and fellow senior associate Daniel Botero are noted members of the team. Other clients include Sacyr, JP Morgan, Banco Itaú and Scotiabank Colpatria.
