We are dedicated to serving the specialized needs of multinational companies and foreign nationals living in Colombia or running satellite offices here. The information contained on this website is written in layman’s terms because we understand the need to be transparent and communicate with our clients better than the typical law firm.

The areas we specialize in are Commercial Law, Business Startup Law, Real Estate Law, Immigration Law, Civil Law, and Colombian Accounting Services.
Some of our more popular services at the moment are payroll services for multinationals, corporation creation for foreign nationals and multinational companies, real estate closing services, private investigations (both civil and criminal cases), and immigration services (which are partially handled by Visas y Tramites Internationals). We offer price guarantees, transparent legal services, comprehensive tax planning, and experience with the Colombia Legal system dating back to 2007. We are your boots on the ground.
