Overview


ARIAS, FABREGA & FABREGA has been at the forefront of the legal profession, advising leading international financial institutions and multinational corporations, as well as some of the largest companies in Panama, for over 100 years.

Our practice includes over 30 areas of law, organized into 14 practice groups, including capital markets, banking and finance, mergers and acquisitions, corporations, regulatory work, government contracts, trade, competition and antitrust, real estate, environmental matters, employment relations, trust and estate planning, litigation, taxation and intellectual property.

The firm also has a strong offshore practice, for which it has developed its own network of affiliated offices in London, Luxembourg, Geneva, Hong Kong, The British Virgin Islands, Uruguay and Belize. Under our brand name ARIFA CORPORATE SERVICES, we offer clients a complete list of offshore solutions, including company formation and management services, as well as trust and foundation services. For selected clients, we offer more sophisticated estate and family financial planning services, as well as trustee services, through our affiliate SWISSARIFA.

The firm has a distinguished reputation for consistently providing the highest quality legal advice and is highly recognized for its unparalleled expertise in structuring complex, innovative and sophisticated mergers and acquisitions and capital market and financial transactions in Panama and the Central America region.

Our success is the result of the superior quality of our lawyers, most of whom have been educated in leading law schools in the United States and Europe or trained in law firms in New York. This unique background of our legal teams enables the firm to act as a bridge between legal and business cultures and to provide effective legal services to clients, particularly in challenging cross-border transactions.

Not surprisingly, the firm and many of its lawyers have always been top-ranked by the leading international legal publications, including Chambers & Partners, IFLR1000, Who's Who Legal, and Latin Lawyer 250.

We hold ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. This is the principal reason our clients regularly entrust their most difficult and sensitive matters to us.

On-going investments in state-of-the-art law office systems and the support of professional managers and highly trained personnel enable us to offer the most efficient and competitive services to clients.

We take pride in our organization and, with the support of our lawyers, personnel and clients, we expect to continue focusing on what we have known to do best for a century: protect our clients' interests with excellence and integrity.
