The former Honorato | Delaveau reorganised as ‘HD’ in March 2023, the new platform now housing sister entities HD Compliance and HD Systems as well as core legal division, HD Legal. The firm’s corporate practice handles general corporate matters, M&A, shareholder agreements, and corporate governance, and is also experienced in company reorganisations, divisions, dissolutions and liquidations, along with joint ventures and due diligence processes.

At associate level, senior Andrea Alarcón Fiorentino specialises in investor regulations; and Ignacio Ruiz-Tagle, a former adviser to the Comité Acreditación Mercado de Valores (CAMV), advises on investment and feeder funds.

Among the associates, Antonia Vial advises on real estate project financing, while senior Ignacio Araya Paredes, who assists with fintech work, is a September 2022 recruit from Banco Central de Chile. Former partner Felipe Divin left in August 2022 to establish his own firm.
