FERRERE has moved its Santa Cruz offices to the heart of the Equipetrol area and a few minutes from the city center. From the 18th floor of the Ambassador Business Center, the firm has joined a brand-new architectural project, a reference point for the city, incorporating lead-generation technology.
With over ten years in Bolivia, FERRERE is one of the country’s largest law firms, and the fastest-growing. In 2016 it opened its offices in Cochabamba and moved its La Paz offices to premises four times the size of its previous location there.
FERRERE is in a process of international expansion that has involved other recent milestones, such as its launch in Ecuador, with three new offices opened since 2015 in the cities of Quito, Manta and Guayaquil. The firm has a total of ten offices in the four countries in which it operates, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay.
Gerardo Villagómez , FERRERE Bolivia’s managing partner, said: “This is another step in the firm’s growth process in the region and particularly in Bolivia, keeping pace with the expansion of the Bolivian economy. With great enthusiasm, this news is a push for us to continue on the road of attracting talent and investing in technology in order to bring us closer to our clients.”
