Professional Notice

FERRERE is the only multi-jurisdictional, purely South American law firm. It has 200 attorneys throughout Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay and stands out for its US-style structure, methodologies and policies. The firm has developed international standards and homogeneous services, guaranteed by integrated, vertical practice groups and procedures, and a firm-wide training programme.

FERRERE is Uruguay’s largest law firm and the only one ranked Band 1 in all practice areas by the leading legal directories. The firm was named “Law Firm of the Year” in 2015 by both international legal publications granting such awards in Uruguay, and it was chosen in a countrywide survey of university students as among the top three “dream companies to work for” in a ranking led by the US company Google. FERRERE has a unique strategy based on highly specialised practice groups covering industry sectors as well as areas of legal expertise. This strategy, facilitated by its size but also consciously developed over two decades, has resulted in services of the highest quality and cost efficiency for its clients.

FERRERE is a rarity in the four jurisdictions in which it operates. It is a fully merit-based organisation that does not allow relatives of partners to join the firm. It has an early mandatory retirement policy and great emphasis has been placed on promoting diversity, with women making up 30 per cent of the partnership. 

Many of FERRERE's lawyers have US or European degrees and have practised in global law firms, financial institutions or the headquarters of major multinationals. Regional and international companies, as well as global law firms, take advantage of the firm’s footprint to complete their coverage of the region.

The firm has invested decades of hard work in building sophisticated practice groups dedicated to both areas of law and industry. The firm’s industry specialisation is a differentiating feature that, along with cutting-edge technology, allows it to provide clients with outstanding quality legal advice and business solvency with a high level of cost efficiency. FERRERE’s regional structure and depth of resources enable it to handle the most complex cross-border and multi-jurisdictional transactions. The firm regularly deploys members of its highly specialised talent pool to whichever jurisdiction they are needed in, at any specific time. 

FERRERE Bolivia

After a decade of sustained growth, FERRERE’s Bolivia office is now a recognised leader in this jurisdiction, and one of the three largest firms in the country. With offices in La Paz and Santa Cruz, it provides clients with specialised services in all major practice areas, representing many of the largest multinationals, most international banks and almost all multilateral organisations operating in Bolivia.

FERRERE Ecuador

FERRERE launched in Ecuador in 2015 and in January 2016 announced the opening of its second office in the coastal city of Manta. FERRERE’s establishment in Ecuador has been an important step in consolidating the strategy of offering international-class services across all four jurisdictions and positioning the firm as a leader in Latin America. The Ecuador team has a strong transactional focus and broad experience in dispute resolution, including local and international arbitration, tax and regulatory matters, and the energy, banking and finance sectors. The Manta office focuses on corporate, litigation, labour, agribusiness, tax and maritime law matters.

FERRERE Paraguay

FERRERE has established itself as a leading law firm in Paraguay, following more than a decade of steady growth and participation in some of the largest deals in the market, including M&A and financing transactions. The office has a strong footprint in agribusiness, financing and logistics, and represents some of the largest multinational companies and almost all multilateral organisations operating in Paraguay.
