Estudio Alegria Buey Fernández Fissore Montemerlo is one of the smaller firms in this chapter, but its insolvency and restructuring practice group packs a punch. A former national judge in commercial matters, the first chairman of the Argentine Securities and Exchange Commission and alternate judge of the Supreme Court of Justice of Argentina, Héctor Alegria is the founder. He is a prominent figure in the Argentine legal market and built a name for this firm from his counsel to local companies in debt restructurings following Argentina’s financial crisis in the late 1990s.
The firm is known for its high-quality legal advisers, who are fully committed to their clients. Javier Alegria, Pablo Buey Fernandez, Gabriel Fissore and Miguel Montemerlo currently share management of the firm.
