Philippi, Prietocarrizosa, Ferrero DU & Uría (PPU) is the first major Ibero-American law firm. The firm is born from a merger between the Chilean Philippi, Yrarrázaval, Pulido & Brunner, Colombian Prietocarrizosa, and the two Peruvian firms Ferrero Abogados and Delmar Ugarte. The prestigious Spanish and Portuguese firm Uría Menéndez has participated in the new firm since its inception in 2015.
With offices in Santiago (Chile), Bogota and Barranquilla (Colombia), and Lima (Peru) is a full-service firm. Additionally, Uría Menéndez brings its network of offices in Spain, Portugal, New York, Beijing, London, and Brussels to the partnership.
The firm provides an efficient response to the new demands for professional services arising from the growing economic interdependence between the Pacific Alliance countries (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru), coupled with the increasing interest of European, Asian and North American companies in the Latin American region.
The experience acquired by the founding firms, the technical and professional quality of their lawyers and the geographical reach through our network of offices, have turned PPU into the reference firm with the largest direct presence in Latin America.
We are strongly committed to internal/external regulatory compliance and to the ethical standards that govern the ethics of the profession. PPU has a Division of Ethics and Conflicts of Interest, led by a Controller.
