Latin Lawyer Announces Carlos Urrutia Valenzuela as Lifetime Achievement Award Winner


Latin Lawyer is delighted to present its Lifetime Achievement Award Carlos Urrutia Valenzuela, Colombia's ambassador to the United States and the former managing partner at Colombia’s Brigard & Urrutia Abogados.

Carlos Urrutia Valenzuela’s appointment as ambassador to the US in 2012, as well as his membership of the panel at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, indicates the high-standing of the former Brigard & Urrutia partner, not just in his home country of Colombia, but across the region as a whole. Urrutia demonstrated his commitment to public service early on in his career with roles as secretary general and secretary of finance of the Cundinamarca governorship. He followed this up by going into private practice at Brigard & Urrutia, his father’s law firm, in 1977.

Now almost 40 years since he began working at the firm, 13 of which he spent as its managing partner, Urrutia has crafted a reputation as an expert strategist with a head for business. Peers and clients alike also praise his encyclopaedic knowledge of Colombia’s business environment - much of it gained as a board member of several of Colombia’s leading companies.
