With a presence in Quito, Guayaquil and Manta, and with more than 70 attorneys, FERRERE has consolidated its position as an international-class service firm in Ecuador and also across all its four jurisdictions. The team leads in several industries like energy, mining, oil and gas, agribusiness, mobility, banking and insurance. It also leads in areas such as litigation, local and international arbitration, antitrust, M&A, tax, technology, regulation among other disciplines. 

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 exceptional in the four jurisdictions in which it operates. It is a fully merit-based organisation with a mandatory early retirement policy and a strong focus on promoting diversity, with women making up 30% of the partnership.

Many of Ferrere’s lawyers have US or European degrees and have worked for global law firms, financial institutions or at the headquarters of major multinationals. Regional and international companies, as well as global law firms, take advantage of the firm’s footprint to achieve full coverage of the region.

The firm has invested decades of hard work building practice groups dedicated to the areas of both law and industry. The firm’s industry specialisation is a differentiating feature that, along with cutting-edge technology, allows it to provide clients outstanding quality legal advice with a high level of cost efficiency. Ferrere’s regional structure and depth of resources also 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 any jurisdiction where they may be required, at any time.


The firm advises mainly multinationals, including five of the top 25 Fortune 500 companies, global financial institutions and some of the largest Latin American companies. Many large global law firms also use Ferrere to complete their coverage of the region, given its multijurisdictional presence.
