Firm Overview:
Gamboa Abogados is a boutique firm that finds its origin in the long-lasting legal tradition of the Gamboa family, dating back to the early nineteenth century, and comprising seven uninterrupted generations of lawyers. The firm was specifically established in 1943 by Ernesto Gamboa Álvarez.

The firm is particularly focused on representing clients in highly complex judicial and arbitration proceedings and M&A. It has been recognized collectively and individually by Chambers & Partners, Legal 500, Leaders League and Best Lawyers for several years on these subjects. It also has a distinguished practice in the areas of infrastructure, TMT, sports, entertainment, and family law.

Its tech-oriented approach has made it the first Colombian law firm to actively use artificial intelligence in its endeavors. Since 2020, Gamboa forged an alliance with Luminance –the British platform developed at the University of Cambridge– to be assisted with its powerful AI technology; enhancing the firm's due diligence and document review capabilities.

The firm is an active member of LAWorld, an international legal network comprising more than 60 medium-sized law firms. The network has coverage in the main business centers of the world and has more than 1350 lawyers, distributed in 100 cities.
