Bergstein Abogados is a well-established and highly regarded member of the Uruguayan legal community, known for its impeccable client service and successful core practice areas of corporate and M&A, litigation, tax and labour law. To meet growing client demand prompted by regulatory changes, the firm has invested in its compliance and antitrust practices, where it has met with measurable success. Several lawyers here have experience working in-house, a characteristic that has led clients to voice their appreciation of this team’s well-thought out approach to providing legal services.
Led by the respected Jonás Bergstein, the firm is taking steps towards modernisation. The management committee – which features Bergstein, Domingo Pereira and Leonardo Melos – wants to create a more structured institution with formalised procedures. It has also raised its public profile by working with communications advisers, hosting more events and using social media. The firm is committed to pro bono and plans to mark its 60th anniversary in 2017 with several social impact initiatives.
