About

Provided by Claro & Cía

Claro & Cia.'s tax department helps clients in structuring complex transactions, tax litigation and approaching tax authorities so as to achieve the best economic result for their clients’ corporate, restructuring, tax-free reorganisation, M&A, financing, foreign investment and tax planning needs.

Our department is integrated by lawyers who not only have graduated from the best law schools in our country and with the highest honors of their respective classes, but have also pursued postgraduate studies relating to taxation in Chile and abroad.  This knowledge on tax matters, together with a solid background in corporate law and litigation, allows us to provide our clients with a comprehensive service that includes not only legal advice from a tax regulatory perspective, but also in M&A, capital markets, banking, project finance, and in the increasing number of tax cases before the recently-created Tax Courts due to major tax reforms in Chile.  We are broadly known for our thoroughness, creativity and talent to pull out complex tailored strategies that will lead our clients to success.

Among others, we currently assist, and have assisted, Walmart Inc., Prudential Financial, Inc., Nutrien, Starbucks, Bank of New York Mellon, Freeport-MacMoRan, Itaú Unibanco, AES Corporation, Citigroup N.A., Credit Suisse, First Solar, MUFG Bank, Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank, Nissan, SAAM S.A., Nutresa Group, Tánica S.A. and the Newport Group.
