Why Bergstein? Because of the seniority of the team, its hard work, and its high ethical standards strongly identified with Jewish values.
Personal attention is Bergstein’s trademark: the professional who participates in the first interview is the same who conducts the work until the end of the assignment.
Established in 1957, Bergstein emphasises quality rather than quantity. Its structure is large enough to provide clients with sophisticated legal advice, yet flexible enough to focus personal attention on each client’s specific needs.
The firm takes pride in its responsiveness and its understanding of the clients’ needs for concise and right to the point advice. This probably explains the high number of international firms that partner with Bergstein to cover their legal support in Uruguay.
Independent publications consistently rank Bergstein among the top firms in the country, highlighting its “quality service, absolutely in line with international standards”, its “fast-delivery times” and its “impeccable integrity”.
The people: Bergstein most important asset is the people it has, in a perfect match of senior lawyers and a younger generation, which is taking the lead and today makes up the firm.
The firm invests heavily in professional development. Most of the firm’s lawyers have completed international studies abroad and have been trained at some of the most prominent international law firms in the US and Europe. All of them are bilingual and culturally attuned to the clients' business environments.
Ethics: Fully aligned with most recent technology advances, Bergstein keeps loyal to the philosophy of its founding generation. Bergstein’s strength lies in the depth of its roots. Our work will be meaningless without the strong Jewish ethical underpinnings that sustain the firm.
Social responsibility: Bergstein is engaged in a number of pro bono programmes. In an effort to contribute to the development of the social community in which it is inserted, Bergstein provides professional assistance to Beit Jabad Uruguay, the Holocaust Museum, the Simon Wiesenthal Library, Tzedaká Foundation and Helper, a first aid hi-tech network of volunteers around the country.
