Joaquín Montero; Eduardo Spichiger


The firm’s litigation team stands out from other law firms that I have met in that it works together and coherently, offering creative solutions that reflect its knowledge of law and various court rulings. In addition, I constantly receive various emails with updated information on the status of my cases.

The lawyers always respond very quickly to my requirements and queries, with solid and informed responses – great for the personalised, partner-level attention, availability, dedication, clarity and intelligent strategies.

They work as a team, demonstrating coordination and the professional dedication of each practice member.

‘An active, creative legal team that has vast knowledge of the technical areas involved in litigation – great learning ability, cordial, diligent and continuous 24/7 availability.

Ability to integrate the team with client executives and internal staff in a collaborative, participatory and creative manner – extraordinary ability to act quickly in the event of legal emergencies.

Disputes are addressed in a realistic manner, with strategies taken in conjunction with clients and without creating false expectations.

Direct contact with clients and professionalism when dealing with litigation, as well as clarity when explaining the strategies and steps to follow.

Efficient and timely attention, and I would highlight the expertise of partners Joaquín Montero and Viviana Brito C, who have personally handled my lawsuits.
