Colombian law firm Brigard & Urrutia announced that Jaime Robledo joined its corporate and M&A practice group as a partner.
Together with Sergio Michelsen, Álvaro Cala and Darío Laguado, Robledo will lead a 30-strong corporate team at his new firm.
Robledo has extensive experience in M&A transactions, having advised clients in a wide range of topics including cross border mergers, private equity investment and negotiation of shareholders’ agreements in different areas of the industrial and services sectors.
“We believe that the mergers and acquisitions area is growing in the country and the market is again very active,” said Carlos Umaña, managing partner of Brigard & Urrutia, who added: “Colombia has been and remains a highly attractive market for foreign and local investors; for this reason, Jaime’s arrival strengthens the team to continue facing the challenges and opportunities available in this market.”
