Posse Herrera Ruiz > Medellin, Colombia > Firm Profile

Posse Herrera Ruiz
CRA 43A NO 1-50

City focus > Medellín Tier 1

Comprising professionals who are ‘well trained and very experienced’, Posse Herrera Ruiz’s Medellín platform has evolved into one of the firm’s key service centres. The 14-lawyer team houses strong capabilities in infrastructure, international trade, dispute resolution, tax, investment funds, and fintech, among other areas, which equips it to handle strategic matters for key locally-based clients such as UNE EPM Telecomunicaciones, Consorcio Hidroitunago, and Sura Asset Management — as well as national and international companies. Cristina Vásquez heads the office and specialises in projects, infrastructure and public law; she recently advised Odinsa on its negotiations with Macquarie Asset Management to create a platform for highway assets in Colombia and the region. At senior level, Vásquez is supported by high-profile dispute resolution expert Carolina Posada and international trade and tax partner Juan Camilo De Bedout — both split their time between Bogotá and Medellín. The group further benefits from the emerging expertise of customs and international trade director María Paula Sánchez; newly appointed (May 2023) director Julián Aguirre, who is now in charge of fintech and investment funds nationally; and dispute resolution-focused associate Natalia Tobón.

The sizeable group covers all modes of dispute resolution, from domestic and international arbitration through to mediation and amicable settlement, and is equipped to handle cases across all key industry sectors. In a significant coup, it was engaged to act as local counsel to global mining company South32 in a pair of arbitration cases against Colombia — comprising an investor-state dispute and a commercial dispute — regarding attempts by the Colombian authorities to retroactively claim more than $180m in royalties. Department co-head Carolina Posada is leading the South32 work and is noted for her ‘high capacity for analysis’. Dispute resolution veteran Daniel Posse co-heads the practice and is highly regarded for his experience as an arbitrator as well as acting as party counsel; he is representing new client, Inversiones Zárate Gutiérrez, in a Bogotá Chamber of Commerce arbitration regarding one of the largest real estate projects planned to be developed in Bogotá.

Dispute resolution > Litigation Tier 1

According to satisfied clients, Posse Herrera Ruiz stands out for the ‘experience and knowledge of its partners’, who provide ‘personalised attention and permanent availability’. The group’s other key assets, as identified by sources, include its comprehensive industry coverage and its formidably deep bench, which draws on the skill sets of four specialist dispute resolution partners. Department co-head Daniel Posse is regarded by many as a reference in the market due to his experience in representing clients in complex proceedings in all of Colombia’s courts as well as before major domestic and international arbitral venues. Posse is spearheading the team’s advice to new client, Grupo Nutresa, in contentious matters connected to Grupo Gilinski’s headline-grabbing attempted hostile takeover of Grupo Nutresa, Grupo Sura, and Grupo Argos. Fellow practice co-head Carolina Posada is highlighted as a ‘close, creative, available partner who empowers her team’ and also brings to bear broad expertise in civil and administrative litigation, as well as national and international arbitration. Among Posada’s recent cases, she is representing Eladio Bueno, a British citizen, in an exequatur proceeding before the Supreme Court of Justice. Rounding out the partners’ group are Pablo Enrique Sierra, who specialises in litigation, and Juan Pablo Bonilla, who handles a mix of judicial and arbitral proceedings. The team is assisted by a deep pool of associates, including seniors Alejandro Casas, María Isabel Osorio, Laura Vengoechea and Pedro Miguel Álvarez (who was promoted to practice director in March 2024), as well as intermediates Juan David Fiallo and Medelllín-based Natalia Tobón — all of whom provide dedicated support to the dispute resolution group.

Practice head(s):

Daniel Posse; Carolina Posada


We recommend the team due to the experience and knowledge of its partners, especially Daniel Posse and Carolina Posada, who co-direct the practice and provide personalised attention and permanent availability. It is a very solid team, in size and in experience, knowledge and diversity.

Daniel Posse and Carolina Posada make the perfect team. Their different skills complement each other in an incredible way. They are experts in what they do, and are leaders in arbitration and litigation at a national and international level in industries such as construction, health, trusts, retail, energy, etc.

The team of lawyers organises itself very quickly to deal with a diversity of disputes in a very efficient and thorough manner. We value the team’s depth and commitment to handling each of the cases.

The litigation and arbitration team at Posse Herrera Ruiz is robust, with more than 20 lawyers and 4 partners, who are personally in charge of serving their clients, whether large, medium or small.

It is a diverse team, not only in terms of gender but also in the origin of its lawyers. There are lawyers from intermediate cities in the country, as well as from public and private universities. They strive to be up-to-date and it is normal to see them at conferences, academic events and even in the press.

For me, the team’s values and treatment are the differential. Lawyers are humble despite their experience and depth. They are always available and very frank in their assessments.

I work with Carolina Posada, who co-directs the practice, and with her team, mainly Laura Vengoechea, Natalia Tobón, María Isabel Osorio and some issues with Juan David Fiallo. They are all exceptional, and it shows how Carolina inspires them. She is a close, creative, available partner who empowers her team.

Carolina Posada doesn’t promise more than she can get, and that’s peace of mind, because she’s honest and prefers not to delude me with baseless cases. It has saved me a lot of unnecessary wear and tear and that is something that, from a business point of view, distinguishes the firm from other law firms.

Colombia > Energy and natural resources Tier 1

With a strong track-record in both the conventional and alternative energy spheres, the practice is particularly noted for its a growing focus on projects involving renewable sources for clients such as Grenergy, among others. High-profile specialist Alvaro José Rodríguez possesses extensive experience in energy and environmental law and is particularly sought after for his expertise in the oil-and-gas arena; he recently advised Oxy (through its subsidiary Anadarko Colombia Company) in a farm-out agreement with Ecopetrol for the transfer of a 40% stake in four offshore blocks. Up-and-coming partner Mariana Sánchez’s practice spans a mix of mining, energy, and infrastructure-related work; she advised Hidrocarburos del Casanare on the structuring of a 2MW self-generation energy facility. The group also draws on deeply experienced practice director Diana Salazar, who splits her practice between insurance, and energy and natural resources; and Erika Serrano Rojas, who was promoted to director of the firm's environmental and sustainability practice in March 2023.

Practice head(s):

Alvaro José Rodríguez; Mariana Sánchez


An excellent firm: knowledge, professionalism, availability… one of the best firms we have worked with in Latin America. Very detailed, they see things from all points of view, they don’t overlook any detail.

The treatment is really extraordinary from all the members of the team. They are very professional and know exactly what they are doing.

Their quality of work is unmatched; the promptness of the response – they are always timely.

I’d recommend the entire team of Mariana Sánchez.

Our operation is in the oil-&-gas sector. We operate a ‘tea pot’ refinery in Yopal Casanare. The hydrocarbons sector in Colombia is highly regulated, which is why one needs to be up-to-date with current regulations, not only regarding O&G but equally in environmental matters. The Posse team is highly specialised in these issues, in addition to having a constellation of technicians with whom a complete in-depth study of each topic is achieved. We are also building a solar park to self-consume and export energy, for which PHR are well-known stars.

What is outstanding about the PHR team in O&G, environmental and additionally in renewable energy – photovoltaic in our case – is the unconditional accompaniment and support. Their availability for us, 24/7. The team is mainly led and coordinated by partner Mariana Sánchez, with the additional and important support of Erica Serrano and Pablo Mejía. Great team. They are unconditional and attentive to detail, whether in contracting, regulation, etc.

Colombia > Tax Tier 1

Posse Herrera Ruiz’s tax group finds favour for its ‘extensive experience in planning national and international operations’. The full-service practice secures high-level work across a varied mix of contentious and non-contentious matters, with strong showings in transactional tax (including large-scale reorganisations), tax planning and litigation. Indeed, its established reputation in the tax area was recently demonstrated by its advice to the Colombian Government, via the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, on an analysis of the regulatory changes needed to increase the country’s exportation-of-services capacity. The department notably fields one of the deepest benches in the market — split between the firm’s Bogotá, Medellin and Barranquilla offices — which is led by go-to tax expert Juan Guillermo Ruiz (‘proposes innovative solutions tailored to the client’). Other senior names include tax litigator Juan Camilo De Bedout and tax planning specialist Jaime Gómez. In June 2022, associate Daniel Ortegon joined from EY Law Bogota. Transactional tax specialist Juan David Velasco left the firm in April 2022.

Practice head(s):

Juan Guillermo Ruiz


It is a large team with extensive experience in planning national and international operations. It also has associates with experience in processes and litigation with the administration, which adds value to the support of the firm.

Jaime Gómez is very receptive to the client’s needs and seeks to have complete knowledge of the situation in order to propose alternatives. Juan Guillermo Ruiz proposes innovative solutions tailored to the client.

PHR’s recent work with us (a multinational corporation) reflects its great technical knowledge of tax issues and, very importantly in our case, its experience in litigation with the authority. Compared to other law firms, it seems to us that PHR is very solid in its advice and clear in its strategy.

The people on the team, in addition to their technical competence, have a clear vocation and service, we highlight Juan Camilo de Bedout and his team.

The litigation team is extraordinary. The firm’s lawyers are first and foremost people, as well as being knowledgeable about their fields of practice. I can  particularly mention Juan Camilo de Bedout.

It is a tight-knit team that works very well together and which is also not afraid to work with others. It strives to be conciliatory and brings more than legal alternatives to the table. It demonstrates infinite patience and seeks the best way to reconcile difficulties.

I believe that the real estate law team handles our matters excellently; not only as individuals but also as professionals. All the members of the team have proven to be people who are conciliatory, professional and open to providing a comprehensive service.

PHR lawyers show great interest in resolving the issues that are the subject of advice, ensuring the best result for the client in the short and long term, working hand-in-hand with the client, making the relationship with external advisors closer, thus achieving comprehensive advice.

I highlight the team’s flexibility in adapting to the client’s needs, including work schemes (through secondment), fee proposal structures and the accessibility of the team. Lawyers maintain a good balance of rigour and pragmatism.

We recommend Andrés Montoya for his business sensitivity, flexibility in customising proposals and work schemes.

In particular, the group routinely pairs up with the dispute resolution practice for additional firepower in contentious matters. The department is overseen by corporate specialist Oscar Tutasaura, who is noted for his experience in non-contentious insurance matters, and litigator Carolina Posada. The group additionally includes director Diana Salazar, who is highlighted for her ‘specialised and current knowledge’, and financial law and capital markets partner Natalia Escobar.

Over the past year, Posse Herrera Ruiz has advised domestic and multinational clients on a wide scope of labour and employment work. On the litigation side, the team handled several contentious cases, including sensitive employee termination-related claims; while on the non-contentious front, it frequently teamed up with the wider firm’s corporate group to advise on due diligence, restructuring and other transactional support matters. Nevertheless, the practice group has undergone significant change, with the firm bringing in Vicente Umaña as department head, along with senior associate Carolina Castro, from Holland & Knight LLP, following the departure of former practice head Carolina Camacho S and senior associate Manuel Parra. Umaña is highly experienced in both individual and collective labour law issues, while Castro -also a dedicated labour practitioner- has particular strength in migratory matters.
