A fixture in the Paraguayan corporate law market for over 50 years, Peroni Sosa Tellechea Burt & Narvaja remains a go-to firm, whose client base has a strong domestic presence, be it homegrown companies or multinational stakeholders. Though it maintains a wide-ranging practice, a standout specialism of the team is in the transport sector, even more specifically in shipping, where a highlight in 2020 saw Francisco Peroni acting as lead counsel to Imperial Shipping on the sale of its Paraguayan companies conducting waterborne transportation services. Two lawyers with extensive experience co-head the practice: Esteban Burt acts for international clients in foreign investments, as well as mining and oil-sector operators and leading aviation companies in their relationships with state entities; and Marcos Peroni, who advised on a number of matters in the insurance, distribution and entertainment sectors during 2020. Victoria Burt is the main contact for corporate compliance matters, heading that sub-team, and Eduardo Alfaro has niche expertise in investments obtaining tax incentives granted under Law 60/90 and Maquila Law. Also noted is associate Vanessa Oddone, who has recently brought a number of new clients to the practice.
