Juan Pablo Menna

Baker McKenzie

Practical, effective and business-oriented’, Baker McKenzie’s tax practice shines in cross-border matters, with clients asserting that ‘its ability to manage complex global transactions is difficult to match’ — it also has notable expertise in international tax planning and transfer pricing litigation. Group head Martin Barreiro is a ‘seasoned and respected expert’ and recently teamed up with Juan Pablo Menna (‘responsive and knowledgeable’) to advise Marriott on the tax aspects of its $105m sale of the Sheraton Hotel in Buenos Aires, which was structured as a stock rather than asset deal. On the consultancy front, the same team advised UBS on the implications of the recent Argentine income tax reform. On the contentious side, the firm successfully represented Magna in a reimbursement proceeding concerning income tax. Other representative clients include Dart Container, Starbucks and Vestas. The team was recently boosted at junior level by the arrival of two associates: Bárbara Roca joined from Basílico, Santurio, Cainzos & Fernandez, while Lara Inés Paulucci Cornejo arrived from KPMG Argentina.
