Macleod Dixon LLP Celebrates 10th Anniversary in Caracas

    The Caracas, Venezuela Office of Macleod Dixon LLP Turns Ten

    CALGARY, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Macleod Dixon LLP is pleased to announce that its
Caracas, Venezuela office is marking its 10th anniversary. Since opening its
doors in the fall of 1997, the office has grown from two lawyers to over forty
and to a staff of over 100. The Caracas office serves its clients quickly and
efficiently, combining North American responsiveness with Latin American
market knowledge.
    Bil Tuer, Macleod Dixon's Managing Partner, says, "We were the first
Canadian law firm to expand into Venezuela and we have been able to attract
and retain the brightest group of legal minds in Latin America. Our Caracas
clients, as well as clients from all of our offices who have interest in this
area, have benefited from the advice and insight that this group of lawyers
has offered. As a result, partners from Caracas are regularly asked to present
at domestic and international industry events."
    The Caracas office is lead by Regional Managing Partner, Elisabeth
Eljuri. The team has expertise in matters relating to corporate/commercial,
tax, financial, antitrust, administrative, litigation, and labour and
employment matters. We are also recognized as having one of the region's most
knowledgeable group of natural resource professionals for both mining and oil
and gas work. Recently, we secured Venezuela's largest arbitration award for
one of our clients and were retained by numerous oil companies to advise on a
response to new hydrocarbon legislation. As well, our litigation and
employment experts have set new precedents in Venezuelan case law.

    With over 250 legal professionals in offices in Calgary, Toronto,
Caracas, Moscow, Almaty, Atyrau and Rio de Janeiro, Macleod Dixon is one of
Canada's premiere international law firms. We serve clients around the globe
and across a wide variety of industries including energy, financial,
insurance, mining, real estate, technology and transportation.
