García & Bodán has announced the promotion of Mauricio Orellana (pictured) as a new partner within the Tax practice, joining the list of 13 partners in the region, effective 9 January 2023.
“He is an extremely intelligent lawyer, with a capacity for analysis, organization of ideas, and synthesis, as few people have. He has vast and deep knowledge of Tax Law, not only in El Salvador but also in Central America,” highlighted Terencio García, regional managing partner.
For his part, Mauricio detailed his objectives following his appointment: “To strengthen sub-specialties of the firm’s tax practice area in El Salvador. In 2021 and 2022 we have had very positive results in tax litigation, and we believe there is a great area of opportunity to continue growing. We already have a strong team of specialists in constitutional, transfer pricing, and financial accounting matters that have been supporting our practice area, and that is reflected in the positive results that have been obtained for our clients at the level of administrative appeals and judicial instances”.
Mauricio joined the firm in February 2018. He has more than 20 years of experience in Tax Law during which he has practiced from different backgrounds. His recent focus has been on tax advice to multinational companies to provide efficient alternatives for their investments in the country, as well as tax defence in internal tax, transfer pricing and customs matters.
