Argentina’s Tanoira Cassagne Abogados appoints new fintech, tax partners

“These new appointments will allow TCA to assist in the growing practice of the fintech industry, which complements the already valued advice given by the firm’s banking and finance, intellectual property, data privacy and new technologies areas,” Alexia Rosenthal, partner and chair of the firm’s executive committee, said.

“This positions the firm as a legal market leader in such practices, with the most wide-ranging clients in lending, crowdfunding, wallets, e-payments, digital banks, crypto assets, international payments and NFT trading, among others,” he added.

Rocío is a law graduate from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and focuses on banking and financial law and offering legal advice in the fintech industry. She advises on the structuring of new fintech projects, and on regulatory matters related to Argentina’s Central Bank and the national securities commission.

She has worked as an in-house lawyer for fintech companies with a regional presence, in financial entities, and has taught at prestigious universities on fintech issues in Argentina. She also provides advice on debt and equity issuances in the capital markets, as well as on private financing carried out locally and internationally. She has spent much of her professional career as a lawyer at the firm.

For his part, Alejandro is also a law graduate from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and is a specialist in tax law from the same University. Throughout his career, he has acquired vast experience in different areas of tax law, both in matters of advice and tax planning, as well as in tax litigation at national, provincial and local levels. He teaches public finance and tax law at his alma mater and tax law at the Universidad Católica de Argentina.

Alejandro’s addition as partner in the tax area “will strengthen a key area to provide a comprehensive legal service to clients from all industries, as tax impact analysis in different markets and industries is essential when structuring any business or operation, whether local or cross-border”, the firm’s partner Santiago Monti said.

“The strategic growth of the tax and fintech areas will provide comprehensive advice to the firm’s clients in their business innovation, meeting the new challenges in their day-to-day operations,” partner Manuel Tanoira said.
