Chapman & Asociados

Barranquilla-based Chapman & Asociados’ client base is nevertheless nation-wide. The 45-strong team offers ‘quick responses, creative solutions, and an interdisciplinary’ approach, with expertise on issues such as outsourcing, health immunities and unions’ protection. Charles Chapman (‘a very detailed and creative attorney’) and Mirna Wilches (‘updated with the most recent jurisprudence’), who are both very well regarded, co-lead the department, which has been representing the Colombian Family Welfare Institute (ICBF) in a multi-faceted judicial process to prove the inexistence of a labour relationship between the institution and the “Community Mothers”, achieving a favourable result in the Constitutional Court. The team also successfully acted for Bancolomia in a protection-of-rights case against two judicial opinions that forced the bank to reinstate an employee. Other 2018 mandates included creating a specific strategy to respond to protection-of-rights actions brought by Electricaribe’s employees. Director of labour proceedings Heimy Blanco is also a key practice member. Other clients include Prodeco, Sura, Grupo Nutresa and Ecopetrol.
