Rivadeneira Colombara Zegers (RCZ Abogados) was founded in 2009 as a result of the merger between the Rivadeneira Zegers Law Firm, founded in 1990 by Ricardo Rivadeneira Monreal and Rodrigo Zegers Reyes, and Colombara Olmedo Law Firm, founded in 1999 by Ciro Colombara.
Since our foundation, we have earned a prestigious reputation in complex litigation in criminal, administrative, constitutional, civil and commercial matters, as a result of the successful solutions we have developed for the most complex controversies affecting our clients.
Likewise, during the last years we have developed new and diverse areas related to corporate advise to national and international companoes and to the development of projects, especially in the construction and real estate industries, energy, and sanitation, desalination and water reuse. Those areas have been strengthened with the incorporation of José Ignacio Zaldívar in during 2020.
We also participate in specialized networks that allow us to expand our solutions in legal matters, such as the Latin American Association of Desalination and Water Reuse (Aladyr), the Chilean-American Chamber of Commerce and the Pro Bono Network of the Americas.
Today, in RCZ we are in a new stage, where we seek that thebrand transcends the founding partners, and where we mix the tradition and experience that characterizes us, with the innovationand agility that is required to be a legal boutique of excellence in the XXI century.
