Urenda Rencoret Orrego y Dörr is a corporate and M&A powerhouse with a long history and solid reputation for reliability. The firm has strong mining, energy, disputes and real estate practices, among others, and proves popular with clients across many sectors.
Being a medium-sized firm allows younger partners to get involved from the early stages of transactions, which is excellent for their career progression.
Despite a slowdown in M&A work across the Chilean market after the pandemic struck, Urenda Rencoret noticed a steady rise in this area in the second half of 2020, especially with cross-border M&A. The firm’s labour and restructuring teams were kept busy throughout 2020 as companies had to adapt to the economic slump during the lockdown. Resulting from this, corporate clients have faced more disputes and have called upon the firm for litigation and arbitration counsel in recent months.
Nearly three years on from introducing a CEO and CFO, Urenda Rencoret's internal structure is one of a modern, institutionalised firm. Its managing committee means that the vision of three partners helps steer the firm in an efficient and more diversified manner.
Meanwhile, the firm is a favourite with clients, who frequently highlight the quick responses received from lawyers as well as their dedication to always get things done.
Alliances and networks
The firm is a member of Multilaw, as well as the World Law Group.
