Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Alfonso Carrillo has served as managing partner of the elite international business firm Carrillo & Asociados since 1989, and plays a key role in its international fraud, insolvency and asset recovery practice.

“He is considered one of the most accomplished, all-round lawyers in the country,” said a source in Chambers Global. Alfonso recently contributed his decades of cross-border financial industry and litigation experience to the Carrillo & Asociados team that served as Latin American counsel to the liquidators of the Stanford International Bank (Antigua) Ponzi scheme. In addition to assisting with the team’s successful legal actions in Colombia and Venezuela, he also played a key role in developing the legal strategy for recovery of tens of millions of dollars in outstanding loans from former SIB clients throughout Latin America.

Alfonso and his firm are the Guatemalan representatives of ICC FraudNet, the world’s leading asset recovery legal network, according to Chambers & Partners.

Integral to the firm’s growth and its lead counsel role in the region’s top cross-border transactions and litigation, Alfonso advises some of Latin America’s largest multinationals on day-to-day operational, regulatory and litigation matters. For example, his landmark work in regional jurisprudence and business regulation, advising on Guatemalan tax and pension reform, the country’s securities and marketing law, and its upgrading commissions, has resulted in contacts and experience at the highest level of industry and government.

With vast qualifications and experience from many international bodies, including the United Nations and the World Bank, he is widely published and has lectured at Guatemala’s top universities. He speaks Spanish and English.

WWL says: Alfonso Carrillo M is a well-established figure in the Central American market who wins widespread international recognition for his first-class practice.
