We like the accuracy of advice and clarity in strategies. It is difficult to find a team that works as clearly and efficiently as the PPU team.’

The quality of service is impressive. They are always available, interested in the details of the business and are proactive in their efforts.’

Dispute resolution Tier 3

Full-service law firm Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría fields a 20-strong litigation and arbitration department that focuses on complex, high-impact or highly sensitive cases. Areas of strength include disputes involving corporate law, construction and engineering, investment arbitration, energy, natural gas, electricity and mining. The team has undergone significant change over the last reporting period with, firstly, the departure of Enrique Alcalde and former senior associate Benjamin García for start-up boutique Marinovic & Alcalde Abogados in mid-2019; and subsequently the departure of Cristián Conejero Roos to re-join Cuatrecasas at its new Santiago office, taking former senior associates Gianfranco  Lotito and (Uruguay qualified) Juan Manuel Rey Jiménez de Aréchaga with him, in April 2020. Following the latter departure, the firm moved rapidly with the mid-May hire of the founding partner of Vial Larraín Abogados, Jorge Vial, as the new head of its disputes practice. A procedural specialist with over 30 years' litigation experience, Vial arrived with five associates, boosting the contentious group to 20 lawyers. The practice also retained its key litigation partner, Germán Subercaseaux, who is particularly noted for litigation involving contractual liability, torts and internal investigations, as well as arbitration. Key support comes from principal associate and consumer law and class action specialist, Senda Villalobos, and senior associate Sophie Hellmich, who are both noted. Having rejoined from Three Crowns LLP  in London in 2019, former senior associate Liat Tapia subsequently moved to Ugarte & Correa in early 2020.
