Work areas

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

Nicholson y Cano Abogados has a deep bench and a multi-disciplinary service offering. Both traits helped this firm stay strong – and remarkably stable – during Argentina’s economic difficulties. This is a full-service, multi-talented firm with core practice area strengths in banking and finance, corporate and M&A, litigation, labour, real estate, regulatory and environment. In addition to this, the firm has an industry focus on energy, finance, insurance, telecoms and agribusiness.

Nicholson y Cano is a traditional firm that has shown readiness to make changes to safeguard posterity. The leaders have implemented flexible working and are developing a retirement policy. Management here is also looking to technology; it is gradually shifting to the use of cloud storage. The firm has demonstrated its readiness during the covid-19 pandemic, launching its legal analysis centre with the latest updates for clients. The firm has also put together webinars on policy and regulatory changes catering to local and international clients.

The firm stands out for its higher than average (in the Argentine market) contingent of women partners, who make up a quarter of the partnership. Parental leave is generous; Nicholson y Cano offers three extra months in addition to the statutory three granted to new mothers by law. The firm’s leaders take pride in fostering an easy-going working environment where associates genuinely collaborate closely with partners. Meanwhile, the firm is exploring opening an additional office shortly.

Research by the Latin American Corporate Counsel Association (LACCA), which is affiliated to Latin Lawyer into ‘Who Represents Latin America’s Biggest Companies’ shows Nicholson y Cano to be among the top four most popular firms in Argentina among major companies in the region.
