Dougall Abogados was founded in 1970 by Vernon Roy Dougall, a well-known attorney-at-law in Buenos Aires and many other cities of Argentina. He was advisor to several embassies, in particular, the Embassy of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, where he served as legal Advisor to the Ambassador and was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1977 by Queen Elizabeth II and the award of Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1997 for his services. Later he was appointed Jamaica’s Honorary Consul in the Republic of Argentina. The Firm continued to expand its services under the management of Vernon Dougall until his death in 2004. His son Mark succeeded him in the business and since then he has been leading the law firm. Dougall Abogados is a law firm with a long-standing professional practice. Its main features are the vast advisory experience gained over the years and its complete commitment to client service.
Our main goal is to build a personal relationship with the client, since we believe that it is the one thing that will enable us to deliver the quality of service we want to provide. Many of our clients were or are currently from overseas –they are predominantly British and American-; this experience has allowed us to be prepared and ready to provide services to any client interested in investing or doing business in Argentina.
Dougall Abogados is one of the law firms recommended by the Embassies of Australia, Canada, United States, Norway and United Kingdom and it is included in their lists of law firms offering services to national and international clients.
