Wanda Perdomo; Gustavo Biaggi


‘It is a firm that knows how to work as a team. They are always there when you need them. Heidy Guerrero is a complete professional who combines dedication, integrity, a positive disposition, availability and, above all, efficiency in all her efforts. My words cannot describe such a professional.’

‘This team has no comparison. The personalised treatment of the client, the attention to detail, the time they invest in educating us, the availability, the flow of communication, the sense of urgency and the timely coordination are key elements which makes their service stand out.’

‘There are so many pluses that I wouldn’t know where to start listing them. Heidy Guerrero exceeds any expectation that we could have had when choosing someone to represent us in any dispute (no matter how big or small). The trust developed is such that before making any decision, both in the company and personally, we make a consultation call to her.’

‘We have worked with different renowned firms, however, we have never achieved what we treasure today from this relationship: full trust and openness, a sense of sympathy for our company, clear and continuous communication, professional advice focused on permeating knowledge and establishing mechanisms to prevent future disputes, exhaustive documentation of each case, and weekly and monthly summaries and reminders of the cases dealt with.’

‘Heidy Guerrero is a very valuable resource for us.’

‘It is a prestigious firm. Wanda Perdomo is outstanding – she is highly responsible and collaborative.’

‘What makes the firm unique is its ability to handle all branches of litigation with the same level of quality. The personalised treatment of clients, the availability, the sense of urgency and the assertiveness of their advice, as well as the impeccable management of legal strategy, make them superior to other firms.’

‘Wanda Perdomo and Heidy Guerrero stand out for their extensive knowledge of different kinds of litigation, great practical skills and coherent approach, as well as their ability to mitigate risks, deliver clear expectations and provide an excellent service, which makes you feel valued and informed at all times.’
