ARIAS, FABREGA & FABREGA has been at the forefront of the legal profession, advising leading international financial institutions and multinational corporations, as well as some of the largest companies in Panama, for nearly 100 years. Our practice includes over 28 areas of law, organized into 12 practice groups, including: capital markets; banking and finance; M&A; corporations; regulatory work; government contracts; trade; competition and antitrust; real estate; environmental matters; employment relations; trust and estate planning; litigation; taxation and intellectual property.

We have a strong offshore practice, developing a proprietary network of affiliated offices in London, Luxembourg, Geneva, Hong Kong, the British Virgin Islands and Belize. Under our ARIFA CORPORATE SERVICES brand, we offer clients a complete list of offshore solutions, including company formation and management services, as well as trust and foundation services. For select clients, we offer more sophisticated estate and family financial planning services, as well as trustee services, through our SWISSARIFA affiliate.

We have a distinguished reputation for consistently providing the highest quality legal advice. Our unparalleled expertise in structuring complex, innovative and sophisticated mergers and acquisitions and capital market and financial transactions in Panama and the Central America region is consistently recognized also.

Our success is the result of the superior quality of our lawyers: most have studied at leading law schools in the United States and Europe or trained in law firms in New York. This unique background enables our lawyers to act as a bridge between legal and business cultures and to provide effective legal services to clients, particularly in challenging cross-border transactions.

Not surprisingly, the firm and many of its lawyers are top-ranked by leading international legal publications, including Chambers & Partners, IFLR1000, Who's Who Legal, PLC WhichLawyer? and LatinLawyer 250.

We hold ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. This is the principal reason our clients regularly entrust their most difficult and sensitive matters to us.

On-going investments in state-of-the-art law office systems and the support of professional managers enable us to offer the most efficient and competitive services to our clients. This attention to service has been rewarded by a roster of long-time clients as well as independent awards.

We take pride in our organization and expect to continue focusing on our greatest strength for nearly a century: protecting our clients' interests with excellence and integrity.
