Work areas

This firm is highly recommended for services in the following work areas.

Combining a strong banking and finance offering with projects and natural resources excellence, Larrain y Asociados is a favourite of many companies both local and international. Its multidisciplinary teams all have strong business acumen and, while remaining a mid-size player, its transactional capabilities are admirable. Indeed, the firm punches well above its weight and takes the lead on the Chilean arm of big-ticket global deals while its non-transactional areas such as mining, tax, IP and litigation are equally impressive. 

The partnership is extremely selective about who it hires, picking students from only the best local and foreign universities. The calibre of the firm’s partnership is felt in the wider Chilean community too: its IP head was appointed as dean of the University of Chile’s law school in 2018, a position he will hold for four years.

Client comment about Larrain y Asociados is highly complimentary. “Lawyers are always available and very responsive. They are all very friendly and respectful, great lawyers and great people,” says one client, while another praises the “quality and integrity of their solutions.” Many clients highlight how partners are always directly involved in transactions. “They are really engaged with their clients and have great experience in both litigation and financial transactions,” says another.
