Tanoira Cassagne celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2021 and is a multidisciplinary firm known for a modern approach that prioritises personalised and interdisciplinary client services. Underpinning this is a young partnership where members are hands-on, deeply involved in their clients’ businesses and cognisant of market trends. They are quick to adapt to what clients want and listen to the opinions of younger lawyers within the firm.
This firm’s banking and finance and capital markets are always busy and help the firm stand out from the crowd. Strength in both areas has enabled Tanoira Cassagne to pick up a healthy share of project finance work in Argentina, normally on behalf of banks, but it has also helped issuers in 2020, proving its capabilities in the field.
Another core area is corporate and M&A. The firm offers a compliance and corporate governance department to complement this. In 2019, the firm opened a second office, in the city of San Isidro, Buenos Aires province, to cater to the rising number of corporations moving their offices away from the centre of the capital. The firm has also focused on improving its competition and capital markets practices in recent years and has pioneering experience in the venture capital sector, helping the launch of a 10 billion Argentine pesos (US$144 million) investment fund, and guiding this fund through its first equity issuance.
Innovation was the buzzword in 2020 for this firm. In a year marred by the covid-19 pandemic, the law firm responded efficiently to the new reality by investing in technology and cybersecurity to protect client privacy. The firm also implemented an innovation team made up of senior lawyers, accountants and IT specialists that worked together to design and implement new technologies at the firm.
Tanoira Cassagne takes pride in having a strong teamwork ethic and the firm maintains a close-knit, cohesive working environment. The partner compensation system includes incentives to cross-refer clients across practice areas. A forward-looking partnership takes the concerns of younger generations seriously and a positive working atmosphere is geared towards keeping them engaged. Tanoira Cassagne also previously offered financial assistance to lawyers wishing to undertake further study, although this is on hold during the health emergency caused by the pandemic.
As a young firm, Tanoira Cassagne continues to evolve. It wants to perfect its management structure by delegating more responsibility to partners outside its management committee. In honour of its 10th anniversary, Tanoira Cassagne Abogados renewed the members of its executive board by appointing partners Alexia Rosenthal (as chair), Pablo Mastromarino and Manuel Tanoira.
