Juliana SaaHolland & Knight

The Bogotá outpost of US-headquartered Holland & Knight ‘strives to build long-term relationships‘, according to clients. A solid performer in cross-border transactions, where it draws on its extensive global network, the team also secures a steady stream of domestic financings. In a significant coup, the firm hired former Garrigues‘ counsel, Camilo Gantiva, as partner and head of the office’s financial-services regulation and capital markets’ practices. The team also includes Bogotá executive partner Enrique Gómez Pinzón, who splits his time between Colombia and Washington DC, as well as international transactions specialist Lucas Saffon-López and recently promoted (August 2021) partner Juliana Saa. Alberto Vergara is an active associate.
