Acting for both corporate clients and individuals, Barros & Errázuriz‘s large tax department has a strong name in the market for its broad experience in  tax structuring and implementation, both at national and international levels; the practice is also widely respected for its wealth planning advice, as well as its representation during disputes. Compliance is another area of notable strength. Founding partner Fernando Barros heads the tax practice, which showcases Carola Trucco, who has approximately 20 years’ experience in advising major companies on domestic and international taxation; and the senior associates to note are tax disputes expert Mauricio Bascuñán, and tax transactions structuring specialist Fernanda Becker. An eight-strong team, including former partner María Teresa Cremaschi, and senior associates Evelyn Sepúlveda, Jazmín Gajardo and Nicolás Alvarado, left the firm in March 2021.
