Dentons approves combination with Peru's Gallo Barrios Pickmann



Combination uniquely positions firms to meet client needs in one of Latin America's strongest and fastest-growing economies

On the 5-th of June, Dentons, the world's largest law firm, voted to approve a combination with Gallo Barrios Pickmann in Peru, one of the strongest and fastest-growing economies in Latin America.

The approved combination uniquely positions Dentons and Gallo Barrios Pickmann to provide high-quality legal services to clients within Peru and around the world.

The combination gives Gallo Barrios Pickmann's clients access to the experience and talents of thousands of lawyers working from more than 60 countries on six continents. Similarly, Dentons' existing global clients will have direct access to the talented lawyers of Gallo Barrios Pickmann in Lima, Peru's capital.

"This combination with Gallo Barrios Pickmann demonstrates that we are becoming one of the leading firms in Latin America, where we are growing faster than any other law firm," said Elliott Portnoy, Global CEO of Dentons.

The combination follows a strategic alliance with Brazil's Vella Pugliese Buosi Guidoni. It also follows the launch earlier this year of Dentons Muñoz in Central America, and the launch last year of Dentons López Velarde in Mexico and Dentons Cardenas & Cardenas in Colombia.

These moves are part of Dentons' long-planned strategy to build our fast-growing presence in Latin America.

"Dentons bolsters its standing as the leading law firm--and not just the largest law firm--in the world with this high-quality combination," said Joe Andrew, Global Chairman of Dentons.

The combination enhances both firms' depth and reach in key business sectors and practice groups, including Banking and Finance; Corporate; Dispute Resolution and Litigation; Labor, Employment and Migration; Mining and Natural Resources; and Tax.

"Given Dentons' polycentric approach, this combination will preserve our roots in the local community and the attributes that have helped us become one of the top firms in Peru," said Julio Gallo, of Gallo Barrios Pickmann.

The combination is expected to launch later this year.
