After 18 years in Venezuela, Clyde & Co is perfectly situated to advise local and international clients with problems in the region.
Our Caracas office is deeply integrated in the local market, but is also a regional office, regularly co-ordinating work in Colombia, Panama and surrounding countries. We handle insurance and reinsurance work, shipping, aviation, energy and trade, in addition to the other Clyde & Co core areas of business.
Some of the continent’s most prominent lawyers have been trained at Clyde & Co which means we are well connected throughout the region. Our Venezuelan team includes top notch, local lawyers who regularly appear in the Venezuelan courts. They form an unbeatable legal triumvirate with our offices in Brazil and our unique team of Latin American lawyers working out of London.
The office handles both contentious and transactional work, which is often high-profile and high-value. We are the first port of call for difficult situations. For example, we have advised insurers of large off-shore platforms which sank off the coast of Venezuela, as well as insurers in major aviation incidents. The office is active in defending different members in confiscation and retrieval of assets in the region.
We work for businesses investing in Latin America and for local Venezuelan companies, both large and small. Clients include insurers, reinsurers, major corporations in the shipping, aviation and energy industries.
Clyde & Co’s growth is in step with Latin America’s development as a global economy. We are poised to help build infrastructure, to keep commodities flowing, and to assist investment in Latin America’s future.
