Overview

It is by far the most senior team on the market, formed by lawyers and CPAs, which allows for greater depth and breadth on tax matters. As Chambers & Partners states, “Guyer lawyers are sensible, commercial, switched-on and thorough in their approach” “The firm is always excellent in providing the services from a technical and practical perspective. They are very practical tax advisers.”

Recent highlights include:

  • Advising the banks in the tax planning for the first global bond in nominal pesos issued by the Republic of Uruguay in the international market.
  • Assisting Agropecuaria del Litoral SA to structure the creation of a financial trust that issued US$50 million of “mixed” securities in Uruguay
  • Advising Goldman Sachs in its first investment in Uruguay with the US$140 million acquisition of approximately 60 per cent stake in Tienda Inglesa, one of Uruguay’s main supermarket chain.
