Work areas

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

Tax boutique Lewin & Wills, which was founded in 1978, has steadily built up one of the country’s most reliable and sophisticated offerings in this field and is recognised in Colombia as a market leader.

The firm is a beacon in the tax practice in Colombia, and it offers bright expertise in its estate planning and foreign exchange work. The disputes side is recognised too for their proficiency. One of the firm’s partners left in 2022 to join Colombian Elite firm Brigard Urrutia. Although this was an obvious loss for Lewin & Wills Abogados, the firm has sufficient depth in its tax department to take this change in its stride. Meanwhile, its corporate department is busy attending to a wide selection of matters from mergers and acquisitions to structuring contracts.

Lewin & Wills combines highly specialised services with hands-on involvement from all of its lawyers. The firm deliberately has a small ratio of associates to partners, ensuring clients have access to its most experienced lawyers.

In 2018, this firm set out the goal of steadily growing revenue by 40% by 2023. With that date fast approaching, the firm certainly is not short of work. In recent years, its services have been called upon for complex restructurings, distressed M&A work as well as navigating tax tariff reductions.

The close-knit yet amply knowledgeable boutique succeeds in providing an attentive service that ensures all of its clients feel seen. Its customer base praises the firm for its expertise and responsiveness.

Alliances & networks

Lewin & Wills is a member of LATAXNET, a Latin American tax and legal network it helped found in 2003. The firm is also part of the Advisory Centre on the World Trade Organisation (WTO) law and has an association with global tax consultancy group WTS.
