Based in Montevideo, Uruguay, Bergstein is a full-service law firm whose practice covers virtually all areas of the law (including corporate, tax, litigation, employment law, real estate, cyber-security, oil and gas, to name a few). Established in 1957, the firm is widely recognized as one of the most prominent law firms in Uruguay, with a long-standing tradition for sound legal counsel and a deep respect for the rule of law.
Independent publications consistently rank Bergstein among the top firms in the country, highlighting its “quality service, absolutely in line with international standards”, its “fast-delivery times” and its “impeccable integrity”. In 2015, International Tax Review recognized Bergstein as Uruguay’s Tax Firm of the Year.
Bergstein emphasizes quality rather than quantity. The structure is large enough to provide clients with sophisticated legal advice, yet flexible enough to focus personal attention on each client’s specific needs.
The clientele is diversified, to include both national and foreign companies, one-man ventures, international credit organizations and top Fortune 500 companies.
Bergstein combines 60 years of experience, with the drive and energy of a young team of outstanding professionals who make the firm. Their vast majority is active in academia. Many of them have completed legal studies abroad and have been trained at international global firms in the US and Europe.
The firm takes pride on its responsiveness and its understanding of the clients’ needs for concise and right to the point advice. Probably that explains the high number of international firms which partner with Bergstein to cover their legal coverage in Uruguay.
The firm includes accounting, payroll and real estate departments.
