Our expertise

Our multilingual Colombian team has an outstanding reputation for handling complex litigation and trials for insurers and corporates, and advising on a full range of claims. We advise on all areas of insurance claims, with a particular focus on financial lines including D&O, property and energy, and have specialist experience providing corporate and regulatory advice.

Our approach

We are regarded as leaders, not just because we have some of the most respected legal minds in our field, but because we know it's important to be practical, commercial and approachable. We give comprehensive legal advice.

Answers - not just more questions
Recommendations - not just options
Strategy and tactics - not just a legal view in a vacuum
Clear language - not legalese, clauses and caveats

We call this: Legal advice in black and white.
