Throughout our history we knew how to maintain our leadership in the legal services market, distinguishing ourselves by our values, ethics, and way of doing things. This is huge merit of the current partners, of those who preceded us, and of countless professionals, employees, and collaborators who developed their talent in our organization, giving the best of them day by day. I sincerely believe that the constant respect for the talent of the members of the firm has been the recipe to thrive and transcend in a market as competitive and with so many ups and downs as the Argentine legal market.”
