Addition represents the 17th global location for Aliant.
May 4, 2021: Aliant, an international law firm with operations on five continents and in 17 countries, announced today the opening of Aliant Panama. The new office was formed through a partnership with Officium Lex Lau Abogados Panama.
Aliant Law was founded in 2015 to deliver cross-border international legal services, including M&A, corporate transactional, and litigation. The firm has operations in Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America, and Central America.
Officium Lex has handled major cross-border matters in geothermal energy, real estate, and financial services, and led major international corporate agreements and transactions. It also serves to advise clients on doing business in Panama and maritime matters. As Aliant Panama, it will serve as the hub for the firm’s growing Latin American practice.
“We are thrilled to have added Aliant Panama. Officium Lex is a highly respected and recognized firm with a bench of some of the finest lawyers practicing. Having operations on the ground in Panama enables us to deliver deep local legal insight and experience, supported by a global team of colleagues,” said Jacob Stein, chairman of Aliant. “Since our founding in 2015, we’ve grown to provide services around the world to clients ranging from startups to global giants. The addition of operations in Panama meets the needs of many of our international clients who have legal needs there.”
“Being a part of Aliant enables us to help our clients with all of their legal needs that have an international component. From a commercial transaction in the U.S. to IP issues in Asia, we are now poised to meet our clients’ dynamic needs, working as part of a new breed of law firm combining exceptional quality with the value and service of a smaller boutique firm,” said Iván Lau De Leon, the head of Aliant Panama.
Lau De Leon will also serve as head of Aliant’s Latin American practice, with a focus on expanding the firm’s footprint and range of services in this important economic center.
