Colombia > Banking and finance Tier 1

Very much one of the firm's marquee offerings, Gómez-Pinzón Abogados (GPA) 'full-spectrum' banking practice fields a powerful 19-strong team with a core of four partners who each have over 20 years' experience. Practice head -and sector heavyweight- Ricardo Fandiño's recent mandates include leading on Avianca Holdings' $2bn debtor-in-possession financing, and advising the lenders on the COP860.5bn financing to Gamper Acquireco II; while managing partner (and structured-finance specialist) José Luis Suárez led advice to Enfragen on its $1.76bn debt refinancing, and has also been counselling JP Morgan on its conversion into a fully licensed bank in Colombia. Daniel Londoño's practice covers both local and international financings and capital markets issuances; his recent mandates include advising the IFC on a $100m loan to support women-owned enterprises, social housing and sustainable projects in Colombia; and the Inter-American Investment Corporation (and Canadian Climate Fund) on a $120m subordinated loan granted to Banco Davivienda. Adriana Moreno spent more than 15 years in house at a range of financial institutions -including Corfinsura, Bancolombia, Serfin and BTG Pactual- before joining the firm; now partner-in-charge of the Medellín office, her practice centres on the financial, capital markets and investment banking sectors, where she advises on both regulatory and transactional matters. Her recent mandates include advising Almecenes Éxito on its successful negotiation of a COP1,390bn credit agreement with a number of banks, principally, Banco Davivienda and Banco de Bogotá.  The department also boasts a similarly strong second line of senior associates, including Jimena González (particularly structured finance and project finance); Catalina Prieto (corporate finance, project finance and international bond issuances); Daniel Flórez (credit agreements, capital markets, private equity); and Tonia Orozco (credit agreements, infrastructure financing, private equity). As a client noted, they're 'incredibly responsive, respect deadlines and provide practical and solution-oriented advice.

Testimonials

Great knowledge of financial law and strength of the team. Their excellent customer service and quick response to issues, which are always handled with adequate seniority depending on the issue.

Partner Adriana Moreno is a great connoisseur of the financial sector. Customer service, diversity and technology. She has great standards.

We found in Gómez Pinzón a highly trained team of advisers, very friendly people, knowledgeable about the issues in their practice area and very committed

In-house lawyers need to know about the knowledge, experience and trajectory of the Gómez Pinzón team in the banking and finance practice. We are convinced that the Gómez Pinzón team is one of the best in Colombia in the banking and financial sector; that is why we chose them.

They are highly trained people, with studies in Colombia and abroad. They are fluent in English, which is necessary for transactions with English-speaking parties. Always committed, ready for any questions, suggestions. Its availability is almost permanent.’

With Gómez Pinzón we feel good. We know that Gómez Pinzón is always at the forefront of changes in both the law and the market. They recently launched or updated their mobile app, very well structured in our view.

The team is key, as much the disposition as the knowledge and the accompaniment.’

I believe that the relationship of trust is what differentiates them, as well as the resolution of conflicts. Make a legal consultation an easy solution and not a bigger problem.

Colombia > Corporate and M&A Tier 1

The Affinitas’ alliance member-firm for Colombia, the full-service Gómez-Pinzón Abogados (GPA) fields a sizeable corporate practice almost 30-lawyers strong. Following the untimely passing of Andrés Hoyos in December 2020 (and the subsequent departure of fellow practice co-head Pablo Rabelly Mendoza  -to EY Law– in April 2021), the practice has been reorganised under the leadership of corporate and environmental partner, Lina Uribe García. ‘A name of reference for M&A‘ according to clients, Uribe focuses on transactional work, private equity, joint ventures and general corporate matters, while her environmental expertise is likely to be of ever-increasing relevance post-pandemic. While the practice has been in a period of transition, it has retained its involvement in sophisticated, high-end M&A work and continues to offer the gamut of corporate services, including compliance, as well as the ancillary expertise derived from other practice areas. Other key practitioners include the ‘technically exceptionalNatalia García Arenas, ‘a very versatile lawyer in corporate and M&A‘ who focuses on the private equity fund and finance sector as part of a broader transactional practice; Felipe Mariño (‘a young partner with a promising future‘) who splits his time between corporate/ M&A and real estate and infrastructure; Juan David Quintero, who was elected partner in December 2019 and experienced counsel María Fernanda Restrepo, both of whose practices  also centre on corporate and M&A mandates. Additional senior input -particularly on the transactional side- comes from 30-year veteran Patricia Arrázola, who heads up the energy and mining practice, and infrastructure, administrative and constitutional law head, José Luis Suárez. Recent mandates include multiple transactions on behalf of Ashmore Andean Fund II; advice to Globant on its $62m acquisition of Grupo Assa; and counselling Acon Investments on its acquisition of a majority stake in direct sales company, Salesland, which has operations in the Iberian Peninsula and across Latin America. Key associate support comes from seniors Emanuela Guevara  (corporate/M&A, commercial law and reorganisations); Juan Pablo Caicedo (corporate/M&A, banking and finance, capital markets); and Natalia Villamizar (corporate/M&A, contractual and regulatory) who was appointed senior in March 2020. Andrés Fonseca is currently a visiting international associate at Latham & Watkins LLP (as of July 2021). Since publications, the firm has further strengthened its partner bench with the hire of corporate, M&A and capital markets practitioner Ana Cristina Jaramillo - effective as of November 2021.

Lina Uribe

Testimonials

They know their client very well and take the trouble to understand and know them in depth.

They differ in that they are practical, they do not waste the customer’s time with complex concepts but rather they define quickly and easily. I highlight Juan David Quintero and Natalia Villamizar.

There is always availability, the team for the transaction is defined from the beginning and they accompany the client all the time. Members participate in meetings most of the time.

Specific knowledge of the sector in which the acquisition is carried out and good communication skills.Knowledge and ability of communication and negotiation.

The team has a very professional, warm and close relationship with the client and through empathy and hard work you know that you can count on them to deliver and that they are a part of your team. Natalia Garcia leads the practice and she is a very versatile lawyer in corporate and M&A. She is technically exeptional in financing and has a can-do attitude. She is an essential part of our team who brings new ideas and solutions to our problems.

The practice is led by Natalia Garcia, who is very creative in finding solutions to problems. They are the kind of lawyers that find a way to make things work and don’t get tangled up in formalities. Both her clients and their counterparties are better served by this appoach.

GPA is one of our favourite firms in Colombia. They suffered a great loss this year with the death of André s Hoyos, but both Lina Uribe (new head of M&A) and Felipe Mariño are other names of reference for M&A. Lina has a lot of left hand managing mandates and Felipe is a young partner with a promising future.’

‘Diversity. I’d highlight the work of the firm’s Diversity Committee in particular; for more than five years it has verified, proposesd, promoted and supports specific initiatives that generate awareness and changes in the face of diversity and inclusion needs in the legal sector. This includes the launch of new lines of action by the Committee that focus on issues of gender equity, LGBTIQ+, racial and ethnic diversity, people with disabilities and social mobility, among others.

Dispute resolution > Litigation Tier 2

The 15-strong disputes practice at Gómez-Pinzón Abogados (GPA) is -quite literally- undergoing a generational handover process, with David Ricardo Araque 's assumption of leadership of the department following William Araque's move to an of counsel position in October 2020. On the litigation-side, the team has experience acting before the Supreme Court, Council of State and the country's Constitutional Court, and handles civil, commercial and administrative matters on behalf of private and state parties concerning tort, public contracts, distribution and agency agreements, among others, particularly with regard to utilities, infrastructure, project finance and the oil and gas sector. And while not an international firm, the team can also call on its Affinitas Alliance colleagues across the Pacific Alliance nations. With approaching 15 years' experience, practice director David Ricardo focuses on domestic litigation (and national and international arbitration), in areas including construction, commercial distribution and infrastructure, particularly proceedings involving complex commercial disputes, both national and international.

Testimonials

A solid and reliable practice that has now become my go-to for Colombian data privacy matters. Andrés Fernández de Castro Muñoz was efficient and required very little supervision from us (as instructing and coordinating counsel). It was a pleasure to work with him.

Despite the size of the firm, lawyers in the different practice areas transmit closeness to clients and knowledge of detail.

It is a highly organised team with an adequate service structure for the client’s needs and creative solutions to legal problems.

‘This team has the following qualities: 1. They have the required technical knowledge, 2. They understand the client’s needs so their advice is adjusted to what is required in practice and 3. They respond extremely fast which is fundamental in the technology industry. They make the client feel as if their issues are the most relevant and they’re concerned about going that extra mile and providing a service that really serves to solve the situations presented. Furthermore, they are extremely reasonable in terms of billing, which is why they become, rather than allies, an extension of the company’s in-house team.

In general, they have international level technology which facilitates the flow of work and they are also very involved in issues of the tech industry, which allows them not only to be aware but also to lead several of the most important regulatory discussions.’

Agile, small, focused team. Able to make recommendations and make decisions quickly and without bureaucratic interference. They rely on other members of the office or external resources when necessary.

Juan Antonio Ucros provided exceptional service. He has the ability to understand and analyse situations in their broadest context (big picture) and at the same time is interested in the details of each facet of a situation. Therefore, his ideas and recommendations are broad, deep and at the same time practical.

They know the relevant government agencies and how they work, and how to navigate issues of overlapping jurisdiction. They are also just, fundamentally, good lawyers. They track the details, respond quickly, and add value beyond just addressing the Colombia-specific issues.

Paula Samper Salazar leads their work for us. Excellent judgment, very practical, she knows when and how to bring in colleagues with specialized expertise. Very comfortable knowing that we’re in her hands.’

Mauricio Montealegre

Testimonials

In Gomez Pinzon we find professionals who are fully trained and committed to the internal processes of our company.

Its permanent availability and response time to our needs. Knowledge of the norm and clarity for making decisions. I would highlight Doctor Mauricio Montealegre and his associate Lina Isabel Tapiero.

They undertook a rigorous examination of the situation of the company and followed an improvement plan which has been under their supervision and advice throughout.’

Gómez Pinzón lends us its “pro bono” support, and their specialist practice team is essential when it comes to solving our doubts in this area. We have observed that practice at the firm is a great opportunity for those who are starting their work experience and allows them to be in contact with common situations and learn the importance of being updated at all times regarding labour legislation. The work team at GP is very competent, they provide close support and guide their clients.’

The concepts issued by the lawyers of the Gómez Pinzón work area are always very complete, accurate and always make sure to clear up all the concerns that their clients have. The concepts given by the team can always be trusted with certainty and this conveys peace of mind. Although their responses take a bit of delay lately, they always follow up either by email or by phone call.

In terms of outstanding members and associates, Patricia Vergara was an excellent leader, who is no longer around. But we also have the professionalism and kindness of Mauricio Montealegre León, Lina Isabel Tapiero Contreras and Laura Gaitán Gómez.

We have observed that the practice group is always diverse and has adequate rotation.

The firm ensures personalised attention. The team is small, which makes it a boutique within a traditionally large firm and that generates a close relationship with the client. They are attorneys who are up-to-date and have practical solutions based on experience.

They provide very complete and comprehensive advice, and have the availability and willingness to provide the necessary support.’

I’d highlight Mauricio Montealegre León. She works very neatly.

This team is much better than other law firms with general law practice. The reasons are three-fold: on the one hand the technical knowledge is great, and on the other, they understand the client’s needs: that is, they do not give ethereal or theoretical concepts but are adjusted to the business need; and finally their response time of is wonderful.

You feel that they are always available to you and that all customer issues are very important. Mauricio Montealegre is the one who directs the practice and is outstanding.

The team is indeed diverse which makes teamwork solid. They have technological services according to international standards, and are very reasonable in terms of billing. In these areas they are also far above the other firms.
