Montevideo-headquartered law firm Ferrere announced the opening of a new office in Cochabamba, its third base in Bolivia.
Cochabamba is the third-largest city in the country and considered a major hub for food processing, transportation, manufacturing and energy multinationals.
Partner Alejandro Pemintel will add managing the new office to his current responsibilities as head of the La Paz office. He will have three associates in Cochabamba with plans to add more in the short term.
Ferrere recently celebrated 10 years in Bolivia and is widely considered the country´s second largest firm by headcount. The Montevideo-headquartered law firm has a distinctive footprint in South America, with over 200 lawyers in 10 offices in Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay.
Andrés Cerisola, global managing partner of Ferrere, affirmed: “The opening of the Cochabamba office is another step in the process that began in 2012 when we resolved that by 2017 we would be the leading firm in all of the jurisdictions in which we operate. The process of hard work, attraction of talent and investment that followed as a result of that decision is reflected in this new step, which reaffirms our conviction that our strategy of innovation, differentiation and intelligent investment will continue to yield the extraordinary fruits we have seen over the course of these years.”
