Jorge CarrahaClaro & Cia.

Housing a 12-strong department (as well as three tax accountants), Claro & Cia.‘s tax practice is able to leverage off the firm’s widely recognised capabilities in M&A, capital markets, banking and project finance; and it is well known for its tax advice to multinationals and large local clients on complex domestic and cross-border transactions. The team is also consistently sought out for its design and implementation of tax-efficient schemes, along with its expertise in litigation before the Tax Courts. Heading the firm’s tax department, Jorge Carraha (‘one of the best lawyers I have met in Chile‘) advises corporate and family office clients on tax-related transactions, group restructurings and litigation; providing key support is senior associate Nicolás Maturana, who assists with local and cross-border transactions and tax controversies. Since publication, Maturana has been raised to the partnership, effective January 2022.
