Bernardo Cassagne, María Inés Brandt, Maximiliano Krause and Alexia Rosenthal have joined new firm Tanoira Cassagne Abogados in Argentina.
The firm, which was launched in March, provides a full service and currently employs 35 lawyers.
Name partner Cassagne, who joins from Estudio Beccar Varela, specialises in antitrust, domestic trade, administrative law and corporate law. He has advised at national and international levels on regulations related directly and indirectly to domestic trade, specifically law of supply, consumer rights, fair-trading and unfair competition.
Recognised tax specialist Brandt also joins from Estudio Beccar Varela, and focuses on national and international tax planning for investments to be performed in Argentina through different funding forms and capital structures. She advises companies on national, provincial and municipal tax law matters and on the design of efficient legal forms for the development of businesses.
Krause focuses on international trade including advice and intervention in dumping investigations in conflicts related to MERCOSUR and before the World Trade Organisation.
He is also experienced in advising on domestic trade issues including consumers’ rights, fair-trading and unfair competition. He joins from Estudio Beccar Varela.
Rosenthal joins from the banking and finance team of Cárdenas Di Ció Romero & Tarsitano Abogados. Her practice is focused on advising both local and international companies on capital markets, foreign exchange regulations, finance and banking and M&A. Most recently she worked on the first IPO in Argentina in two years, advising real estate developer TGLT.
“We found we could set up a firm where we gave the same quality of service as a large firm in a structure which we think is more efficient,” says Pedro Castro founding partner of the new firm. “We could combine what is brought to the table by a boutique firm – a more personalised client service – with the expertise of working in a full service firm such as Beccar Varela.”
All four partners feature in various editions of Who’s Who Legal’s publications including Competition, Banking, Corporate Tax and Trade & Customs.
