Garrigues continues to consolidate its offering in Latin America with the hire of Adriana Espinosa to head the infrastructure practice in Colombia. With this addition, Garrigues’ office in Bogotá now has seven partners and more than 50 professionals.
Espinosa is well-known in the Colombian market for her advice to companies and State bodies on the structuring and execution of major projects. With more than 15 years’ experience, Espinosa joins the firm from Colombian law firm Arrieta Mantilla & Asociados, where she worked as partner at the infrastructure practice. Her expertise will further boost Garrigues’ infrastructure practice, a sector the firm committed to in its expansion into Latin America and one in which it has excelled, both in Colombia and in the rest of the region, due to its participation in strategic projects, such as the legal framework of the Bogotá metro system.
“It is an immense source of pride to be able to form part of a great firm like Garrigues, with such a lengthy and significant track record and which has become a benchmark in the Colombian market in such a short space of time. For me, it is both a challenge and a source of motivation to be able to contribute to the growth and consolidation of the infrastructure practice,” said Adriana Espinosa.
Jaime Iglesias, the partner in charge of the Bogotá office, noted that “the arrival of Adriana will be key to strengthening our service in a strategic area for our clients in Colombia and Latin America,” stated Javier Ybáñez, the firm’s senior partner and coordinator of the Latin American practice.
