With a sizeable headcount, Morgan & Morgan boasts a workforce capable of taking on a range of matters, although its strong suit remains corporate mandates. Its century-long history in the local legal market ears the firm deserved respect and aplomb among its enviable clientele.
The firm’s transactional department is its biggest weapon. In addition to its M&A and finance offering, the firm has performed well in the capital markets arena, assisting both underwriters and issuers. Among other recent work highlights, the firm helped Panama’s Green Tower Properties transform into a real estate investment trust and make an initial public offering on the Panama stock exchange.
Morgan & Morgan excels in non-transactional areas too, with highly specialised practice groups. Its maritime group is particularly noteworthy, in addition to strong offshore estate and trust planning services. The firm has robust internal compliance policies and provides compliance counsel to clients through a subsidiary.
Morgan & Morgan offers additional services to high-net-worth clients on tax information disclosure requirements across the jurisdictions in which the firm operates. The firm also has a licence to create and manage SMART funds – investment vehicles with flexible reporting requirements – in the Bahamas. This means clients can simultaneously access legal support and investment services through the firm.
Morgan & Morgan has two offices in Panama, in Panama City and the western city of David. Its affiliate organisations – such as MMG Bank and Morgan & Morgan Corporation Services – have outposts in the Bahamas, Belize, the British Virgin Islands and Switzerland.
