Founded in 1975, QUINTANILLA, SORIA & NISHIZAWA is a law firm legally established in Bolivia by Dr. Eduardo Quintanilla Ybarnegaray and Dr. Abel Soria Nau, prominent lawyers who with a vast career as corporate, mining and hydrocarbons’ lawyers, and their international presence in the negotiation of contracts, created what today is one of the internationally most traditional and prestigious law firms in Bolivia.
Presently, QUINTANILLA, SORIA & NISHIZAWA has a wide commercial and corporate practice, providing services from the incorporation and general representation of national and foreign companies and private entities, mergers and acquisitions, drafting of contracts, tax planning and general business assistance, to the negotiation and drafting of commercial, mining and energetic contracts, public bids and invitations, as well as economic, financial and banking transactions of national and foreign companies. Also, the firm has a vast experience assisting non-profit organisations.
The members of the firm, educated in some of the most prestigious universities around the world, frequently participate in national forums of different nature and professionally assist complex international transactions. Presently, the firm has extended its practice to cover both established legal fields as corporate and commercial law, energy and mining law, financial and banking, tax and labour law, foreign investment and others, as well as other developing areas as regulatory laws and administrative contracts, international joint ventures, stock-market transactions, telecommunications, contracting with State entities, intellectual property, immigration law, etc.
Two equally important traditions have shaped these first 40 years of practice: the commitment with excellence in the practice of the legal profession and with the highest professional ethical standards, along with the dedication to pro bono work both with the State and with non-profit and charity organisations, in which many of its partners have devoted years of service, and the participation in new legislative projects.
