Garrigues hires Jaime de Larraechea as partner to bolster its financial and corporate practice in Chile
Garrigues has brought Jaime de Larraechea Carvajal on board as partner at the Santiago de Chile office, reinforcing its financial, corporate and M&A practice in the country.
Jaime de Larraechea is a leading Chilean lawyer specializing in corporate and financial matters and M&A deals. He joins Garrigues from law firm Cruzat, Vicuña, de Larraechea Abogados, where he has spent the last three years as partner; prior to that, he practiced at Barros & Errázuriz for ten years.
His appointment is subject to ratification at the next Garrigues Partners’ Meeting.
In the words of Javier Ybáñez, the partner in charge of Garrigues’ Latin American practice, “this new hire bolsters the excellent team of partners at our office in Chile, particularly in Jaime’s areas of expertise, where Garrigues has shown great strength in Chile and in Latin America.”
With this hiring, Garrigues continues to consolidate its presence in the region; besides Chile, it also has offices in Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Brazil.
