Its lawyers have represented all of the Uruguayan financial entities in the salary collective bargaining agreement negotiations with the banking union and the government, as well as the Chamber of Insurance Companies.
Projects and energy: Our projects and energy team is the largest of its kind in Uruguay. Guyer & Regules is “highly sought after to advise on the full range of energy and natural resources matters”, as Chambers and Partners states, with an impressive market share of renewable and oil and gas transactions.Plaza Independencia 811
