About this office:
Figueroa Sierra & Asociados Abogados counsels major foreign companies in Colombia. Since the 1980's the firm's current members and attorneys have worked on complex transactions in most areas of the Colombian economy, involving foreign investment (mergers and acquisitions), financing, trade and services. The firm relies on a longstanding and strong network of members of counsel, having developed a shared culture of professional practice over the years.
In 2013, Figueroa Sierra entered into a formal strategic alliance with the law firm Parra Rodríguez Sanin, with some of whose partners it has continuously worked since 1993. Such alliance conveys that the firms now share offices in Bogotá and Medellín, where common and integrated legal services policies and practices are being applied. We now have a strengthened full service structure of experienced senior lawyers and members of counsel, supported by a sizable group of junior attorneys, thereby currently composing a team of over thirty lawyers. Accordingly Augusto Figueroa is now also a partner in Parra Rodríguez Sanín, whose partners are correspondingly members of counsel of Figueroa Sierra. A merger is projected.
