Alessandri Abogados

Alessandri is one of the most prestigious law firms in Chile; its services meet the entire range of legal requirements of local and foreign companies, individuals and institutions.

Arturo Alessandri Palma, two times President of Chile (1920–1925 & 1932–1938), founded Alessandri in 1893. Since then, for over five generations, the firm has worked with its clients to reach significant achievements and has contributed to the country’s public service.

Today, the firm has over 50 attorneys with different legal specialties. These attorneys are graduates of the most prestigious law schools in the country and abroad, with LL.M.s from Harvard, New York University and The London School of Economics and Political Science, among others.

The vision of professional performance, based on excellence and drive, has led, not only to invaluable achievements in the local private and legal areas but also to a commitment to Chile’s social development. The firm’s active participation in the Chilean Bar Association and the National Pro Bono agency, through which Alessandri is currently providing pro bono services to many institutions, as well as low-income and vulnerable individuals, has been a source of recognition both nationally and abroad.
