Furthermore, in January 2015, after more than 20 years working in the region, the firm took a ground-breaking step in creating the first Latin-American integration between leading local firms (Philippi in Chile, and Prietocarrizosa in Colombia): Philippi, Prietocarrizosa & Uría (PPU), the first major Ibero-American firm. After an excellent first year, in January 2016 the firm integrated two Peruvian firms, Estudio Ferrero Abogados and Delmar Ugarte, becoming Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría. The opening of a Peru office consolidates PPU’s position and confirms its status as a leading firm in the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru) as it is fast becoming a preeminent firm in Latin America.
