Chilean law firms Russi & Eguiguren and Quadrant Legal merge

“The integration of both boutique firms aims to strengthen their value proposition and broaden the services offered by each,” the newly formed firm said in a statement.

Russi & Eguiguren brings its extensive and successful track record in corporate, transactional, commercial and intellectual property matters, while Quadrant Legal adds its vast tax experience, focused on tax compliance and taxpayer defense, and its recognized high net worth management practice.

Russi & Eguiguren Quadrant’s partners say that the reasons behind this integration are the successful experience of working together for several years, and who complement each other when it comes to an efficient provision of services and sharing the same culture of fostering talent and a meticulous work ethic.

Also key to the decision to integrate was the detection of their clients' need for highly specialized and senior services from a single firm.

"Several  clients have required high quality services that go beyond taxation. Hence the importance of having the expert advice of a team specialized in corporate and transactional matters," Gonzalo Rivera, founding partner of Quadrant, says.

The new firm is led by partners Carlos Russi, Alberto Eguiguren and José Miguel Sanhueza.

As Russi & Eguiguren expanded into the intellectual property area, obtaining excellent results, this integration marks the next phase of a growth project.

“There are several reasons that led us to take this step, which is consistent with what our clients are demanding: legal advisors that strategically support them in their business, addressing their issues with their trustworthy team and having the possibility of accessing other services with the support of, in this case, a very complete, diverse and experienced tax team," Alberto Eguiguren says.

We consider ourselves not only legal counsels but also strategic advisors to our clients, providing legal support with a clear commercial driven guidance on their most sensitive and important issues,” a statement on the new firm’s website reads.

“Our law firm offers broad experience in legal counsel to local and international clients, such as multinational corporations, private equity firms, private investors doing business with or in Chile,” it says.

The new firm’s practice areas cover corporate law and M&A, capital markets, corporate governance, real estate, mining and labor law, as well as tax services.
