The Firm

History

Alessandri is one of the most prestigious law firms in Chile; its services meet the entire range of legal requirements of local and foreign companies, individuals and institutions.

Arturo Alessandri Palma, two times President of Chile (1920–1925 y 1932–1938), founded Alessandri in 1893. Since then, for over five generations, the firm has worked with its clients to reach significant achievements and has contributed to the country’s public service.

The firm has over 35 attorneys with different legal specialties. These attorneys are graduates of the most prestigious law schools in the country and abroad, with LL.M.s from Harvard, New York University and The London School of Economics and Political Science, among others. Many of the attorneys are university professors and write for specialized publications. Most of Alessandri’s attorneys are members of international lawyer organizations, including, among others, the most important lawyers associations, business, industrial and intellectual property protection organizations and bilateral chambers of commerce.

Alessandri has had a long-standing relationship with major international law firms and financial institutions around the world where a considerable number of its professionals have worked.

The command of English, French, German and Portuguese has allowed Alessandri attorneys to provide advisory services to individuals, institutions, and companies from across the five continents.

The firm represents multinational companies, local and foreign state-owned and private companies, banks and financial institutions, telecommunications companies, the media, and insurers, among others.

Alessandri’s Corporate Practice has extensive experience in banking, finance, and investments, business privatizations, mergers and acquisitions, infrastructure, real estate and construction, government procurement and public law, litigation, amongst others.

Banking, finance, and investments have been one of the firm’s leading practices for over 20 years. In fact, Alessandri played a decisive role in the enactment of the rules allowing to list ADR’s in Wall Street for Chilean corporations and, more recently, in the first registration of a foreign mutual fund for a tender offer in Chile.

Alessandri’s Intellectual Property Practice is one of the largest and most prestigious practice’s in the country; its clients include major corporations and institutions, both local and foreign. The practice bases its prestige on it’s highly qualified team of lawyers and advisors with different specialization, some of which have played a decisive role in framing Intellectual Property legislation in Chile.

The vision of professional performance, based on excellence and drive, has led, not only to invaluable achievements in the local private and legal areas but also to a commitment to Chile’s social development. The firm’s active participation in the Chilean Bar Association and the National Pro Bono agency, through which Alessandri is currently providing pro bono services to many institutions, as well as low-income and vulnerable individuals, has been a source of recognition both nationally and abroad.
