In April 1999, the firms Cariola y Cía. and Díez & Pérez-Cotapos merge in which was to be the first important merger of law firms in Chile. Both firms had achieved an ample ackowledgement in the different legal areas of their practices. Today CARIOLA DIEZ PEREZ-COTAPOS & CIA. LTDA. is one of the leading law firms in Chile, whose establishment goes back to 1889 through the independent activities of Cariola y Cía and Díez & Pérez-Cotapos.

The merger of both professional practices consolidated in our Firm the development of commercial legal advice in all scopes of the relevant economical activities in Chile.

The partners of CARIOLA DIEZ PEREZ-COTAPOS & CIA. LTDA. have not only been outstanding practitioners in the legal profession, but have attained recognition in the academic field as well, by lecturing as professors in the country’s leading Universities and writing law books. Furthermore, they participated in the drafting of the new Constitution of the Republic of Chile, have acted as counselors to the Central Bank of Chile and other public entities, and have been Senate members of the Chilean parliament.

On the other hand, special importance is given in the Firm to extending legal professional training and learning. With this purpose in mind, international postgraduate studies and practice are encouraged, and assistance to seminars and courses, together with lecturing concerning various topics and areas of law, is promoted. Our lawyers have attended law schools of the most prestigious universities, including Harvard University, Eberhard-Karls Universität, George Washington University, London School of Economics, Michigan University at Ann Arbor, New York University, Oxford University, UCLA and University of California at Berkeley, among others.
