Bazán Cambré & Orts was established in 1969 as a result of the merger of the Bazán and Cambré law firms, each of which existed individually since 1953, with the goal of providing highly specialized general corporate and litigation counsel. We have always built close ties with our clients, with the goal of rendering efficient comprehensive legal counseling, combining our commitment to quality and tradition of customized attention with the latest developments in legal practice.
The Firm offers full-fledged legal services in almost every area of corporate law, to both domestic and international companies, including business, contract, labor, environmental, and administrative law, as well as litigation cases.
Our Firm has a diverse clientele, which includes publicly and privately-held local and multinational corporations, representative of the most varied fields of activity and virtually all economic sectors at large.
Over the years, Bazán, Cambré & Orts has gained significant expertise and acknowledgment in the practice of energy law, becoming a leading firm in oil and gas. As a pioneer in this field, the Firm has been actively working in this area for over 30 years, since the outset of the so-called “Houston Plan” and the “Argentina Plan”, assisting clients in a wide array of activities comprising each of the stages they participate in, i.e., at the submission of bids for oil permits and concessions, or negotiation of contracts for mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures; during the stage of oil and gas exploration and production, in all aspects concerning compliance with the legal and regulatory requirements imposed on the applicable stakeholders and in their interactions with the relevant enforcement authority, as well as their partners and contractors; and, finally, during the eventual extension or reconversion of contracts and concessions, sale of assets or reversion of blocks to the National and Provincial State.
Both Bazán, Cambré & Orts and our individual partners and associates have been recognized as renowned experts by leading international guides of the legal profession, such as “Chamber & Partners”, “Who´s Who Legal” and “Expert Guide”. We represent a significant number of local as well as foreign oil and gas corporations, including service companies, in their ordinary operations. Approximately two thirds of the Firm´s practice involves representation of international clients.
In the last years, our energy expertise has expanded, not only to the field of nuclear energy, but also in connection with the new natural resource-based and renewable energies, by providing legal advisory services in projects involving the construction of wind farms and hydraulic-power plants.
Additionally, Bazán, Cambré & Orts provides legal counseling on a regular basis for clients engaged in the provision of infrastructure, goods and services of all kinds, ever since their organization and incorporation under any of the corporate types set forth by local law, as well as in their daily operations.
We further collaborate with our clients in determining and implementing those structures and mechanisms regarded as most convenient and appropriate for their trade and investment plans and the development of their business.
Moreover, several of the major law firms in the United States of America hire our Firm for legal advice concerning projects and matters related to Argentina.
Finally, our Firm currently has a permanent correspondent relationship with law firms in different cities in Argentina and throughout the world, with which we share a common philosophy in the interpretation of the services expected by our clients and the way we service them.
