Our law firm has been well established and positioned with continued success in Caracas since 1994, originally as Steel Hector & Davis, subsequently as Squire Sanders & Dempsey, and currently as WDA legal, S.C. We combine sound legal counsel with a deep knowledge of our clients’ businesses to resolve their legal challenges. We care about the quality of our services and the success of our clients. Our presence in Venezuela allows us to offer expert advice in Latin America, with competitive rates and, in some circumstances, the flexibility of alternative fee arrangements.
Breadth and Depth
The client base of our global legal practice spans every type of business, both private and public. We advise a diverse mix of clients, from Fortune 100 corporations to emerging companies and from individuals to local and national governments. In the private sector, we provide the full range of legal advice required to implement practical strategies and resolve disputes. In the public sector, we counsel governments on privatization of whole industries and on establishment of regulatory systems under which new private businesses can compete.
We are able to deliver cross-practice, cross-border and industry-specific support that clients require for success in today’s competitive markets.
Clients expect knowledge of their business as well as high-quality legal skills from their law firms. Our combination of legal and industry experience allows us to better analyze client requirements and develop the right approach for the matter at hand. Clients receive tested insight and guidance from a team that understands their needs and is able to offer tailored solutions.
We make a special effort to add value to the operations of our clients.
We are dedicated to our clients’ success, and their satisfaction shows it.
Business has no Borders
WDA legal is an independent, non-exclusive affiliate of Squire Sanders & Dempsey. With 37 offices located in 17 countries on four continents, Squire Sanders legal practice is in the markets where clients do business. We also have strong working relationships with independent firms, the Squire Sanders Legal Counsel Worldwide Network, which includes independent firms across Latin America. We have the flexibility to team with other transnational law firms around the world.
We emphasize quality, efficiency and alignment with client goals as core standards to improve continually our service delivery and the value of what we do for our clients. We have the flexibility to add value for our clients, and to consider innovative alternative fee arrangements in some cases or transactions.
Our firm relocated to its current office space in Caracas in 1998.
