FerradaNehme is a respected, forward-thinking law firm with a reputation for regulatory excellence, particularly in the areas of antitrust, administrative and environmental law and compliance matters.

FerradaNehme is often at the forefront of precedent-setting cases that have reshaped Chile’s competition landscape. High-profile antitrust clients have included Delta Airlines and Microsoft. The international face of the firm and one of its founding partners, Nicole Nehme is a renowned antitrust lawyer.

The firm evolves to ensure it remains a key player in Santiago’s legal market. It is notable for its diversity commitments. Within one of the least diverse legal markets in Latin America, almost half of the firm’s partners are women, helped by initiatives such as a gender equality policy, which protects all employees from any prejudice and advances the careers of all its lawyers, regardless of gender. FerradaNehme is also a signatory of the UN Women’s CEO Statement of Support for Women’s Empowerment Principles.

Moreover, FerradaNehme launched its sustainability initiative in 2021, which aims not only to protect its lawyers internally – with its gender equality policy as an example of sustainable action – but also to promote sustainable business more broadly. The firm’s pledge to include more human rights protections in its workload has been evident in recent environmental mandates and cases addressing indigenous rights.

FerradaNehme is one of the most highly sought-after firms in Chile. According to a recent study, “Who Represents Latin America’s Biggest Companies”, published by the Latin American Corporate Counsel Association, which is affiliated to Latin Lawyer, 10 of the region’s largest companies turn here for advice, placing FerradaNehme firmly within the top 10 Chilean law firms in that list. This is underlined by market feedback: the firm is regularly praised by clients for the precision and clarity of its work as well as its in-depth knowledge of the Chilean legal market.
