Argentina > TMT Tier 1

Marval O’Farrell Mairal is recommended as an ‘exceptional firm in every area, its people, its knowledge, its availability’. The TMT practice combines this with its track record of being at the ‘technological forefront, conducting interesting seminars for the sector and participating in important discussions about the business’. The consolidated media, technology and telecoms department provides multidisciplinary expertise covering regulatory, transactional and contentious advice. Online gaming and fintech are key areas of work within the broad practice, which also -uniquely- offers criminal and civil advisory regarding technology, from internet matters to privacy and cybersecurity. The large practice -over 20 layers- is co led by Daniel Di Paola, who specialises in advising large media and telecoms companies on a range of issues; Javier Etcheverry Boneo, a practitioner who is ‘technically rigorous and who knows most about the evolution of the sector in recent years’; and Gustavo Giay, who is head of the IT and privacy group. Technology expert Diego Fernández is also noted. At associate level, key support comes from senior Claudia Paluszkiewicz and intermediate Manuela Adrogue; however, former fellow senior Mariano Javier Peruzzotti moved to Ojam Bullrich Flanzbaum in February 2021.
