Beatriz SpiessGuyer & Regules

Guyer & Regules stands out for its ‘very complete team’, which draws upon ‘specialists in each sub-sector of real estate’ including real estate investment, property finance, project development and leasing matters. Group co-head Federico Susena is noted for his ‘deep and extensive experience in the Uruguayan market’ and advised new client Camposol on the acquisition of around 850 hectares of rural land from Citrícola Salteña — associate María Fernanda González assisted with that work. Susena, with support from ‘experienced and responsive’ associate Carolina Suárez, also advised REIT Peninsula Rentals Uruguay on the acquisition of 60 apartments in Montevideo. The ‘broad practice’ also benefits from the senior expertise of practice co-lead John Leaman (‘a great lawyer’) and newly promoted partner Beatriz Spiess.
