LatinFinance names Garrigues as Best Infrastructure Law Firm for the Andean region
Garrigues has been named Best Infrastructure Law Firm for the Andes, in recognition of the financial advisory services it has rendered and the contribution it has made to major projects executed in this region over the last year. The award is made by the prestigious LatinFinance magazine after studying the part played by banks and law firms in the financing of infrastructures in the area, which provide a firm foundation for the progress, the increased capacity for innovation and the major economic and social gains which are being made.
The awards were presented last night in New York, at an event which brought together most of the financial operators and law firms present in Latin America, along with the major corporations and institutions which assume the task of actually launching these major investment initiatives, for which financing is always needed. The award was received by Oscar Arrús, partner at the Lima office, along with Sergio Amiel and Antonio Bulnes.
In addition to receiving the most coveted prize of the evening, Garrigues also received a further six awards for some of the most emblematic projects in which it has participated as legal advisor in the financing area. These go from specific operations for the construction of roadways or wind power facilities to investments in ports and other major infrastructure projects which are contributing to the development of the Andean region.
Such recognition of Garrigues’ work is hugely important, bearing in mind that it is currently executing an ambitious plan for expansion in Latin America by inaugurating its own integrated offices, staffed by local and international professionals specializing in particular practice areas, where clients can be sure of receiving a service of the highest quality and benefitting fully from the firm’s potential at global level. Garrigues currently has fully functioning offices in Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Brazil and hopes to be opening offices in other Latin American markets soon.
