Testimonials

Their detailed knowledge of the legislation and how to interrelate it with other legal areas, as well as its implications, stands out. REM is a benchmark in how to relate to the client, and in inter-area internal coordination.’

‘A plus that I identify in the firm is the leadership, especially in client care. Rómulo Muñoz takes a subject and coordinates it and if necessary because the subject touches other areas of the study, he leads it and identifies the interactions and implications resulting in a complete and comprehensive work.

Many attorneys at the firm have worked for public entities and have a proactive profile and a fierce defence of the cases raised by their clients, a multidisciplinary approach and depth of analysis.’

‘Many of the lawyers in the team have participated in the drafting of laws, and have a close relationship with the authorities; they are not simply applicants of the law but creators of the law. I especially want to recommend Carlos Carpio, senior partner of the team and Hugo Sarria, associate. Carlos Carpio is clearly the leader in the country in this matter.
