Ally Law bolsters Latin American presence

Hong Kong, 7 October 2021: Colin Cohen has hailed Ally Law’s continued expansion in Latin America with the addition of three new firms: PPO Abogados in Bolivia, Ecuador’s Robalino and Altra Legal in Paraguay.

The trio join just a year after Ally Law welcomed firms from Chile, Colombia and Peru to the fold, meaning the global legal services organisation now has 12 firms in 11 countries across the region. The members have formed a sub-network, Ally Latinx, to promote their collective expertise.

“Latin America is an emerging market for legal services as economies in the region have been on a broadly upward curve in recent years,” said Colin, Chairman of Ally Law’s Expansion Committee and Senior Partner in Boase Cohen & Collins.

“It is worth noting that the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean recently raised its average growth estimate for the region in 2021 to 5.2%, a figure that shows a strong rebound from the problems created last year by Covid-19. These latest additions reinforce Ally Law’s commitment to the region and provide significant added value for our member firms and clients.”

PPO Abogados is the largest firm in Bolivia, both in headcount (56 lawyers) and geographic presence (five offices). It is noted for expertise in corporate and commercial advice, foreign investment and complex cross-border transactions.

Robalino has 90 lawyers and 75 consultants in five offices across Ecuador. The firm’s corporate group is highly regarded for arbitration, dispute resolution, energy, oil, mining, M&A, aviation and antitrust expertise.

Noted as one of the most innovative international firms in Paraguay, Altra Legal’s sector expertise includes energy, telecommunications, ports and shipping companies, manufacturing, beverages, and financial services. The firm has 14 lawyers.

Ally Law is an international network of more than 70 independent law firms. It utilises close co-operation between members to help clients overcome their international legal and business challenges.

35+ years of legal experience is just a click away.
