U.S. Firm Adds Three Partners to Colombia Office
Holland & Knight has hired three new partners and one associate for its office in Bogotá, recruiting former in-house counsel from Citibank and Southern Cross. The new partners are Juan Carlos Valencia Marquez, Vicente Umaña Carrizosa, and Felipe Sandoval Villamil, while Lucas Saffon López joins the firm as an associate.
"Since we opened our new office in Bogotá, we have received an incredible amount of interest from local attorneys hoping to work with an international firm," said Colombia Practice Co-Chair Enrique Gómez-Pinzón. "These four attorneys were chosen for their impressive legal and business experience in areas critical to Colombia's growth: international transactions, tax, labour and energy."
