Allende & Brea is a medium-sized firm with an outstanding corporate and M&A practice. While its roots may be in transactional work, the firm has broadened its service offering and now its mining, insurance, antitrust and litigation areas are all strong suits. Meanwhile, growing project finance and fintech subdivisions within its banking and finance practice have demonstrated a good understanding of clients’ needs.
Allende & Brea prides itself on providing a specialised level of service. All partners focus their practice on one area of law and the firm provides associates training to enable them to do the same. Deep specialisation means it can build deal teams that take a 360-degree approach to issues facing its clients. Allende & Brea prioritises good relationships both between its leadership and lawyers, and the firm and client.
After 65 years in the market, Allende & Brea is now in the hands of its fourth generation of partners, a young yet experienced group. Those who have worked with this firm testify to the high calibre of services available.
Allende & Brea has a mandatory retirement policy and clear career path. It continues to strengthen its institution, and several committees take the lead in different areas of management, including talent hiring and retention, and technology.
The firm wins high praise from clients for its high-quality legal advice and punctuality. Allende & Brea wins an impressive amount of international work, which has given lawyers a global perspective.
The firm has been part of Brussels-based international labour law network L&E Global since 2019 and, along with 16 other Latin American firms, launched a network to develop best practices in compliance.
