Orihuela Abogados | Attorneys at Law was founded in July 2008 as a boutique law firm dedicated to advising international clients doing business in Latin America. Over the years our firm gained important expertise on international transactions involving mining, life sciences, technology and general corporate matters.
Due to the increasing international enforcement of anti-bribery and anti-money laundering regulations by the U.S. as well as the enhancement to local laws throughout Latin America demonstrating the region’s greater interest in also establishing serious enforcement regimes, we became educated, well-trained and developed a unique expertise in corporate anti-corruption compliance of the FCPA in Latin America. We have also gained incomparable experience by way of direct involvement in the most important corruption related cases in the region, and by designing and implementing strong corporate compliance programs for various multinationals. In addition to maintaining a strong corporate international practice involving the US, Europe and Latin America, we also specialize in best corporate governance, OFAC related sanctions and ESG compliance.
The two attorneys that lead Orihuela’s legal practice are multilingual, have multidisciplinary and extensive work experience in international law firms, and have served as in-house counsel or compliance advisors for multinational companies. We team up with specialized counsel with whom we have long term working relationships when the transaction and client needs so require.
