FROM BUENOS AIRES, TO THE WORLD

Comprehensive service, global perspective

Founded in 1897, Beccar Varela is a leading full-service law firm in Argentina. We advise local and international companies in all areas of corporate law across all industries. Through over 120 years of service, we have built a unique and innovative practice, combining the experience of our predecessors with our understanding of modern law. Our passion for the law has driven our continued growth through both good and challenging times, and motivates us to be on the cutting edge of legal service. In 2017, we were named “Argentina Law Firm of the Year” by Chambers Latin America.

Our prime objective is to provide excellent legal advice to help our clients reach their objectives. We combine our understanding of global and local business cultures to provide strategic tailor-made solutions to top-tier multinationals, national companies and individuals, as well as start-ups and not-for-profit organizations.

Our team consists of over 150 lawyers specializing in different areas of law, many of whom have studied or worked in the world’s business capitals. They are supported by motivated paralegals and interns, and by talented and creative administrative staff.

A commitment to innovation and an integrated corporate sustainability program underpins our work. We are the first full-service law firm in Argentina to have joined the United Nations Global Compact, through which among other objectives we hope to contribute to our clients’ value chains as a responsible service provider.

Our head office is located in the city of Buenos Aires. We also have a branch in Tigre, in northern Buenos Aires. We assist clients with activities across the country, supported by a large network of correspondent firms. Our superb relations with law firms and clients throughout the region enables us to seamlessly support cross-border initiatives and Latin America-wide strategies.
