We believe that advising our clients on matters of constitutional law and public law will be enriched by the presence of a constitutional lawyer of Rodrigo Delaveau’s stature. He shares our hallmark and vocation for excellence in highly complex matters. His incorporation reinforces our will to reflect this hallmark and vocation in our public and constitutional law practice, an increasingly relevant area for our clients”.

“To be able to join a firm of the stature of Morales & Besa, with a recognised prestige and proven reputation in the legal market -both nationally and internationally- is a real source of pride. [I will seek to expand and deepen the already extraordinary service that Morales & Besa provides to its clients, incorporating the nowadays highly demanded perspective of Public Law, where reports on highly complex law, specialised advice, as well as litigation, transactions and other matters where the regulatory framework constitutes a fundamental piece” Rodrigo affirmed.
