The appointment expands the reach of Clarity Law to over 90 countries and ensures the alliance can support clients in another Central American country.

Clarity Law, founded in 2019 by José Augusto Toledo and Gustavo Hernández, who were later joined by Ligia Salazar, brings together a team of experienced lawyers whose aim is to offer clients the sophistication and experience of a large firm with the service and accessibility of a smaller practice. Offering expertise in corporate law, banking and finance, real estate and M&A, the firm is ranked highly in Chambers & Partners, Legal 500, IFLR, Latin Lawyer, Who’s Who Legal and LACCA. Staff at the firm conduct business in Spanish and English.

José Augusto Toledo, a former managing partner at a leading Central American law firm, comments:

“It is an honour to represent AGA in Guatemala and to be recognised as its exclusive law firm member in the country. We can now offer our clients with business requirements in multi jurisdictions access to services provided by our new global partners.

“We are keen to share ideas, learn from the membership, and put our growing international client base into trusted hands and we are committed to further strengthening the opportunities available to AGA in this important region and look forward to being part of the AGA family.”

Giles Brake, Alliott Global Alliance CEO, adds:

“I am very pleased to welcome Clarity Law to our alliance. They are a growing, ambitious firm of high calibre lawyers who will represent the alliance with distinction in this important Central American country.

“The alliance continues to build a strong presence across Latin America, positioning itself as an alternative global provider of legal, tax, accounting, audit, and advisory services to the region’s middle market companies. Clarity Law joins AGA during a period of exhilarating growth, and we anticipate the firm will play a key role in AGA’s continued expansion and success in the region. We offer a very warm welcome to all the Clarity team.”

We are excited to work in a “problem anticipation” culture, thinking ahead about issues the client may face, proposing potential solutions. Communication is essential to know what is needed and when it is needed, based on bonds of trust.

Being entrepreneurs ourselves, allows us to understand the priorities and challenges of doing business. Our services add value to our client`s ventures as our advice goes beyond the legal scope. Once we know our client`s business, we propose creative and cost-efficient solutions. Read more.
