It has also developed strategies in relation to regulatory changes and how to implement them. Full involvement in the project is one of the strong points of the team and they maintain weekly contact with us to understand the challenges and opportunities in our projects, and to give us support.

First of all, we must highlight that the team of lawyers is very committed, which translates into attending to our requirements immediately and with the required urgency. The second highly-valued aspect is that knowing their subjects very well, the strategies used by the lawyers always achieve very good results. And this strategy is corroborated when the results they predict are obtained, which gives a lot of confidence. It is a law firm that compares very favourably with others.

Great for their ability to work as a team with clients’ internal lawyers and for analysing each case from different legal perspectives, which gives a complete picture.

As an in-house lawyer, I am looking for a firm that, in addition to technical or theoretical knowledge, has practical experience and the ability to team up with the client. In the case of the lawyers of Bofill, Mir & Álvarez Jana with whom I have had to interact in the area of ​​public law (especially Guillermo de la Jara), we have managed to work in this way with excellent results.

The team has always demonstrated certainty in its actions and responses, the work carried out has always been accurate, and they provide great support for company management. This is what makes the difference when compared with other firms.

The outstanding lawyers are Guillermo de la Jara and Cristián Franetovic. The pluses they have are that they are quick to respond and have great strategy when facing issues, which give clients great confidence and a high probability of success.
