Advising & Counseling
Our multidisciplinary team, comprised of specialized national and international lawyers, provides strategic legal services for the appropriate design, structuring, execution and completion of public and private projects: we offer our clients legal guidance and recommendations based on the alternatives available, and depending on each case circumstances, we strive to optimize the outcomes in favor of our clients, covering all the relevant branches of the law —labor, tax, corporate, contracts, etc.
Furthermore, based on the specific needs of our international clients, we advise them to facilitate their internationalization process, we assist them to better comply with the national legal system and to interact with their parent company in many areas including international taxation, human resources mobility, repatriation of profits, as well as to approach and learn about each country’s local culture and habits in doing business.
We are experts at training public and private sector personnel on numerous and current matters related to Public Procurement Law, Competition/Antitrust Law, Administrative Law, Public-Private Partnerships, Corporate Law, State-owned Companies, and in general in corporate-related matters.
Our “Learning by Doing” methodology is based on practical exercises and real case studies that not only trainers but participants bring to the classroom for a shared analysis. We organize seminars, workshops, round tables, forums, conferences and training courses, open or in-house, on a regular basis at national level, and also international conferences or now well-known events in countries such as Spain, Italy, Portugal and France.
We consider our Consulting Services as of specialized and technical nature, our entire expertise being applied to and focusing on public and private, national and international, business and governmental settings, in order to create tailor-made or comprehensive solutions, providing companies and institutions with the tools, the legal grounds, the methodology and primarily the professional support required to achieve their objectives as planned.
We are a consulting agency often hired to create the normative framework applicable to Public-Private Partnerships, and we produce studies, assessment reports, and/or analysis, through consultancy contracts or specialized legal assistance for several Central and South American States. We also work on the technical, legal and financial shaping of public-private partnership projects required by the public sector in general, in collaboration with the supporting staff, including in the preparation of terms of reference, studies and other required documents.
Based on our large experience in the provision of specialized advisory, consultancy and training services, we have gained a significant level of knowledge; therefore, we are committed to sharing it and spreading it beyond our own needs—internal staff members or clients—, and to doing so on an ongoing basis, authoring and publishing books, indexed articles, and developing IT tools such as “YANAPAY RANTIY”, a software used to consolidate all the information relating to Public Procurement, to successfully administer contracts and to find out about the several options to enter into contracts with the public sector.
All the above is aimed at developing good practices and good methodologies, to help building a society respectful of the legal principles and in particular of the “legal certainty” principle, and to contribute to narrow the distance with the academic community as well as the economic forces of our country.
