Argentina: Roxana Kahale, Among The Top Ten Lawyers Under 40 in Argentina
Last Updated: 22 February 2006

Apertura Magazine, in its January/February 2006 issue contacted over 230 lawyers of the main law firms and companies and asked them to vote for the top lawyers under 40 in Argentina.

Roxana Kahale, partner of Beretta Kahale Godoy, was singled out again this year —she obtained a third place last year— as second top lawyer, apart from being the only woman lawyer among the first twenty positions.

This is how Apertura described Roxana Kahale's professional profile:

"To be a team leader you have to win the members' respect through knowledge and by being always updated" states Roxana who devotes the first hours of her day to surveying in Internet the last regulations issued and reading the newspapers. She defines her work style with two concepts: strong conviction and commitment. "I like to be on the alert for the needs of the client, to meet the deadlines, and above all, to solve issues; in short, to make the client's life easier. To describe risks and advantages, and draw a clear picture for the client to take backed-up decisions."

In 2005 she was devoted to privatization processes in Central America as general counsel of an energy trust. "We also assisted AIG Capital Partners and IFC (International Finance Corporation, from the World Bank) in the purchase of Disco by Cencosud", she says.

¿What are the market needs? "The clients are following very closely the cost-benefit results obtained from their lawyers, and they want professional assistance in the decision process, with a deep insight of their business", states Kahale. "The added value provided by a partner's assistance is to become counselor of his client. If the company has its own in-house counsel, we try not to outshine his work, but rather to enchance it. And when the client does not have an in-house, we are willing to play that role for him."
