Tavarone, Rovelli, Salim & Miani is a young firm that has carved out a distinct position in the market for banking and finance by a clever growth strategy that has seen the firm cherry-pick the country’s top in-house counsel to bring into the fold. The firm is also stocked by well-known partners with experience of one of Argentina’s top transactional firms. Their solid experience, combined with visibility on a steady stream of deals and cases, has given this firm a higher profile and market share than its size might immediately suggest.
Tavarone Rovelli has pursued a measured growth strategy and doubled its partner count since its inception in 2014. In line with that, the firm made its first homegrown partner in 2020, adding seniority to its banking and finance capabilities.
Banking expertise combines with a strength in energy, which in turn has translated into some project finance work. There are other strengths too: two of Tavarone Rovelli’s name partners provide tax, trade, dispute resolution and insolvency advice. The tax practice group has maintained an alliance with a local tax consultancy since 2018, while a lateral hire in the same year brought in senior talent in compliance and investigations.
With growth has come a move towards institutionalisation. There is now a managing committee, and the firm has moved from an eat-what-you-kill compensation model to a performance-led lockstep system. The firm has streamlined its internal processes, something Tavarone Rovelli’s leaders hope will appeal to prospective associates.
