“GH is an organized enterprise, with very competent lawyers. They provide ample experience in the handling of every case. Both the partners and the associates are open, easygoing, and unassuming – despite their awards. The partners are always available.”
“They are magnificent for a number of reasons: the partner is always involved, they retain their talented lawyers, their costs are reasonable, and they have immediate response capability.”
“Mónica Hernández garners praise from her clients, one of whom enthuses about her knowledge of international tax law”.
“For me, the best [legal] advisors that we have are those of Godoy – in fact, they are my benchmark firm.”
A client is quick to highlight: “For me, their main strength is their commercial vision,” further explaining: “They understand the business in such a profound way and offer a very important customer orientation, identifying the needs of the client and acting accordingly.” The same client continues: “They are absolutely a world-class firm and a reference in Colombia in tax advice”
