Biography:

Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Rodrigo Callejas leads the insolvency, fraud, and asset recovery practice at the Guatemalan law firm Carrillo y Asociados. He joined the firm in 2000 and earned his law degree from Francisco Marroquín University in 2002. He holds additional qualifications from the Central America Business Institute (INCAE) and Georgetown University Law Center. He is a fellow of the International Association of Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Professionals (INSOL International).

Through his expertise and leadership, Carrillo y Asociados is spearheading the development of insolvency/asset recovery law practice in Central America through its involvement in two of the largest bank failures/multi-jurisdictional frauds in the history of the Latin America and Caribbean region.

He leads the firm's team, working for the custodian of Bancafe International Bank, incorporated in Barbados, with operations in Guatemala, in performing groundbreaking computer forensics and physical data recovery, to unravel a complex web of offshore non-regulated entities allegedly used to raise and launder money. In pursuit of US$150 million in lost assets, he has effectively led asset tracing, seizure, and recovery strategies for the liquidation, in collaboration with a team of highly skilled legal, audit and forensics professionals from several jurisdictions. Consequently, the custodian has pursued local and international criminal actions for fraud against directors and executives of the failed entities.

Mr Callejas is also lead multijurisdictional Latin American counsel for one of the largest international asset recovery/bank liquidations in history: the US$4.2 billion Stanford International Bank (Antigua) Ponzi scheme.

Mr Callejas' experience includes coordinating and obtaining recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and recognition of cross-border insolvency proceedings before local, US and European authorities.

Mr Callejas and his firm are the exclusive Guatemalan representatives of ICC FraudNet, the world's leading asset recovery legal network. He speaks Spanish and English.

WWL says: Rodrigo Callejas is considered “a top-tier lawyer” who is regularly engaged in significant fraud and asset recovery claims in the Latin American market.
