For his part, managing partner Enrique Ferrando commented: "As a leading reinsurance practice, our focus is on offering distinctive solutions to the ongoing challenges faced by the industry. In that vein, Omar's addition allows us to broaden our portfolio of services to include marine insurance, and also brings experience and expertise to a team of lawyers composed mainly of former in-house counsels from leading insurance companies”.

“This strength sets us apart from other firms. In addition, as an active member of Insuralex, the leading international insurance law network, we have the capacity to handle cross-border matters in more than 55 countries,” Ferrando added.

Osterling Abogados has more than 40 years of experience and is recognized both locally and internationally for designing optimal, timely and practical solutions to companies' daily legal challenges.
