Britton & Iglesias inaugurates its first international office in Bogotá, Colombia

Panama City, Panama – With the aim to strengthen its presence in Latin America, Britton & Iglesias (BRIG) is pleased to announce the opening of its new office in Bogotá D.C., Colombia. This move represents BRIG's natural expansion into nearby markets, a firm that, from Panama, has established its reputation in the effective resolution of international litigations and arbitrations, as well as in construction projects based on international contracting models.


The decision to establish a presence in Colombia is driven by the demand of the firm's clientele in that jurisdiction and by the similarity of both legislations (Panama/Colombia). The suitability of some of the partners and lawyers of the firm, licensed to practice in Colombia, has also been a key piece in this expansion. With nearly 30 years of professional experience, BRIG's founding partners have built the firm's reputation over the last 10 years by offering high-quality legal services in Panama, collaborating with international law firms, and focusing on the continuous update and education of its legal team. Its growth has been organic, and its focus has primarily concentrated on ultra high-quality professional practice, for which it dedicates significant resources to the ongoing update and education of its team of lawyers.


The opening of the office in Bogotá D.C. aligns BRIG's strategy with its long-term objectives, leveraging the Colombian economy, attractive to foreign investors, and consistent with the firm's experience in advising both domestic and international clientele.


From BRIG Colombia, we will address the legal needs in international commercial arbitration, dispute resolution in construction and investment matters, corporate conflicts, litigation, and cross-border insolvency. The BRIG Colombia team will be composed of highly qualified professionals, maintaining the trustful relationships and standards of excellence that characterize BRIG.





Eric Britton, co-founder partner of the firm with dual nationality and eligibility to practice in both countries, will lead the office along with his consolidated team of foreign consultants in Colombia, in order to complement the legal offerings for specific Colombian issues and international matters.


This expansion will significantly reinforce the coverage and attention to current and potential clients in Colombia and Panama, offering comprehensive and specialized services in the important sectors of infrastructure, construction, and others, where BRIG already has a recognized position.




Eric Britton highlights that "this opening reaffirms our commitment to excellence, maintaining trustful relationships, and providing high-quality legal consultancy and assistance services for a demanding clientele. Moreover, it reaffirms our international growth approach and our mission to be a strategic ally for our clients across multiple jurisdictions."
