Through the new unified platform under the same brand and governance, Bruchou & Funes de Rioja will be led by 55 partners covering all the practices required for corporate legal advice in Argentina.
The market leadership of both firms, and the quality of service to national and international corporate clients that identifies them, will be enhanced in a new organization, which will have a team of experts composed of more than 150 lawyers, who will offer excellent services with deep business knowledge.

“We are very pleased to celebrate this innovative model that integrates and complements our practice with a firm of proven excellence and leadership. Convinced that the legal service continues to evolve, we intend to stay ahead of trends and continue making law a practice that prioritizes ethics, talent with strategic thinking and added value to the client,” said Ignacio Funes de Rioja, member of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.

It will also be supported by a Founder’s Council, made up of Enrique Bruchou, Carlos Lombardi and Daniel Funes de Rioja.

Customer value
“The reality of clients makes it increasingly necessary to align practices and services with a multidisciplinary approach, but deeply specialized and homogeneous. In this sense, we are convinced that the possibility of counting on the talent and capacity of our new partners, undisputed leaders in labor law, allows us to add value for our clients and enhance all our practices,” explained Hugo Bruzone, member of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.

“The “multiniche” strategy consists of the integration of the various practices to maximize the value added to clients while maintaining the benefits of expertise by specialty. This provides greater depth of knowledge, know-how and know-who best suits the needs of clients, enriched by the complementation of specialties; interdisciplinary teams and integrated support in terms of infrastructure, technology, innovation, human capital management and quality, for which both firms are recognized locally and internationally,” said Rodrigo Funes de Rioja.
