Allende Bascuñán y Compañía was established in 1999, as a result of the merge of two law firms of long trajectory. Our professional philosophy is characterised by high standards and values, with a permanent search to offer legal services of professional excellence, timely and personalised.
We are a highly specialised firm in aviation law, with a strong experience in certifying domestic and foreign airlines before the Chilean aviation authorities, regulatory aviation issues and also litigation about civil liability in both domestic and international air transport (damages to passengers, luggage, cargo, delays, consumer protection law, etc). Various and important airlines are among our list of clients.
Our lawyers continuously participate in industry conferences, organised by IATA and ALTA. We are one of the leader law firms in Chile in the area. We had been recognised by Who’s Who Legal in transport, aviation regulatory and aviation contentious. One of our partners also is the professor in charge to update annually (doctrine, jurisprudence, etc.) the Chilean Aviation Code.
Besides Aviation Law, the professional practice of Allende Bascuñán encompasses specific areas of the legal field, matters in which we have acquired a recognised expertise, such as tax (including international taxation), corporate, labour, natural resources, administrative law and litigation. And therefore, our international clients can count on the necessary consultation between the different areas when required.
The legal service we provide to our clients is of excellent quality and it also strictly observes the ethical standards of the legal profession.
