Why Bergstein?
Because of the seniority of the team, its hard work, and its high ethical standards strongly identified with Jewish values. Personal attention is Bergstein’s trademark: the professional who participates in the first interview, is the same who conducts the work until the end of the assignment. Established in 1957, Bergstein emphasises quality rather than quantity. Its structure is large enough to provide clients with sophisticated legal advice, yet flexible enough to focus personal attention on each client’s specific needs. The firm takes pride in its responsiveness and its understanding of the clients’ needs for concise and right to the point advice. That probably explains the high number of international firms which partner with Bergstein to cover their legal support in Uruguay. Independent publications consistently rank Bergstein among the top firms in the country, highlighting its ‘quality service, absolutely in line with international standards’, its ‘fast-delivery times’ and its ‘impeccable integrity’.

The People:
Bergstein’s most important asset is the people it has, a perfect match of senior lawyers and a younger generation, who make up the firm and are taking the lead. The firm heavily invests in professional development; most of the firm’s lawyers have completed international studies abroad and have been trained at some of the most prominent international law firms in the US and Europe. All of them are bilingual and culturally attuned to the firm’s clients’ business environments.

Ethics:
Fully aligned with the most recent technological advances, Bergstein keeps loyal to the philosophy of its founding generation. Bergstein’s strength lies in the depth of its roots. The firm’s work would be meaningless without the strong Jewish ethical underpinnings which sustain the firm. Social Responsibility: Bergstein provides pro bono assistance to Beit Jabad Uruguay, the Holocaust Museum, the Simon Wiesenthal Library, Tzedaká foundation and Helper, among others. In Covid-19 times, Bergstein is sponsoring a solidarity program under which food, clothes and books are provided to groups especially impacted by the pandemic.

Accounting & Payroll:

Bergstein also includes an accounting and outsourcing department and a payroll division which maintain the accounting records of all sorts of business ventures and works side by side with the legal department of the firm, in an effort to provide foreign clients and colleagues with a ‘one-stop’ solution.

Clients:
