LATAM Avocats launches in Paris and Lima
With offices in Paris and Lima, law firm LATAM Avocats has launched, founded by Franco-Peruvian lawyer Patricia Cuba-Sichler, a former partner at environmental law firm Savin Martinet Associés and head of the Latin America desk at DS Avocats.
LATAM Avocats’ legal services are back by Patricia’s ample and renowned experience in environmental law, climate change, corporate social responsibility, ground contamination, corporate law and international trade between France and Peru, as well as the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean as a whole.
The firm offers assistance to French and European countries in the setting up and development of business in Latin American countries, as well as to companies from the region exporting to Europe, with expertise in European legislation and regulations regarding food security, pollution control, branding and trade litigation, among other themes.
Patricia Cuba-Sichler holds a DEA in environmental law from the Sorbonne and a master’s degree in civil and commercial law from the Universidad de San Marcos in Peru.
She led the positioning of DS Avocats in Latin America, heading up the integration of the DS Abogados team in Chile in 2016 and the opening of the firm’s offices in Peru in 2017.
In addition to her expertise in the abovementioned areas, Patricia is also an accredited auditor of companies’ financial performance for COFRAC, the French regulator that assesses the competence and impartiality of laboratories and the certification or inspection bodies.
