Bragard Abogados

Uruguay

Bragard Abogados fields a highly specialised, bold and innovative full-service law firm. With Jean Jacques Bragard at the helm, the firm matured into a top-tier in banking, capital markets, M&A, litigation, tax and corporate with a business-orientated approach.

With the onboarding of litigation partner, Laura Capalbo and promotion of young partner Agustina Bomio (corporate and tax), Bragard blends a unique team of experienced yet vigorous and energized lawyers. Bragard's team of lawyers are in tune with market changes and with the evolving demands of its clients. Each group at Bragard Abogados is led by seasoned practitioners, which allows the firm to home in on the intricate details of complex legal work.

The firm's transition from finance boutique to well-established full-service provider let Bragard quickly stand out both locally and in the international arena as a serious player in corporate and M&A work. Bragard rapidly gathered a high-profile client portfolio and in recent years it has intervened in relevant transactions within the Uruguayan market. As an example, giant Spanish DISA, FONPLATA, SURA, Oxiteno, SunPartners, Kimberly Clark, Balanz, Megal and El Observador, are some of the examples of day-to-day clients of the firm. Additionally, despite its huge development in the M&A sector, Bragard has not lost its leadership in capital markets, being the current legal adviser of Tienda Inglesa in its capital markets projects.

Bragard also has an ESG angle. With a key business relationship with the private equity firm Capital Oriental, Bragard helps entrepreneurships meet investors in projects with relevant impact on the planet.   

Moreover, Bragard is a member of Red Legal Iberoamericana accessing a network of legal firms throughout LATAM, Spain & Portugal.

Bragard Abogados has more female than male lawyers, something that is highly unusual in Uruguay and Latin America as a whole. Demonstrative of its commitment to that cause, the firm has implemented a flexible working scheme for its female employees, which offers part-time and working from home measures to help women balance home and family life.

Inspired by its approach to supporting working women, Bragard also launched a flexitime platform for working mothers and female employees outside of the firm. Its Bolsa M project provides a system that helps female workers in business balance the work around their family life easily, launching an employment exchange platform that helps women find new jobs that better suit their needs. The United Nations awarded the innovative tool with a prize for its impact on empowering women in the workplace.

The firm is also quite active in pro bono work, as partner Jean Jacques Bragard is vice president of SOS Aldeas Infantiles Uruguay (SOS Kinderdorf International), among other relevant work for ONG and foundations such as Fundación Alejandra Forlan, Escuela de Golf Chimont, among others.
