Alejandro Juan Pablo Breit

Managing Partner

He graduated from the University of Buenos Aires cum laude in 1999, and pursued postgraduate studies in bankruptcy law (2004) and consumer protection law (2010), among  others. He is a C.P.A. candidate (Catholic University of Salta), as well. He is also an Intellectual Property Agent (2001). He has participated and lectured in conferences, seminars and debates in his area of expertise.

Alejandro began his legal practice as an associate at Negri, Teijeiro & Incera, in 2000. In 2006, at the age of 29, he became a partner of that firm and co-chaired the litigation practice, where he worked on various complex civil, commercial and insolvency proceedings on behalf of domestic and foreign clients. He has represented both creditors and debtors in insolvency proceedings, judicially-supervised workouts and less formal financial restructurings.

In the course of his practice, Alejandro has represented clients in corporate and probate litigation and in claims involving financial assets and collateral, including leases, guarantees, insurance products and trademarks.

Alejandro, along with most of the firm’s team, has broad international experience and perspective, having studied as much as 6 different languages and dealt with so many diverse cultures. This often proves to be a valuable benefit for clients who have previously experienced some language or cultural barriers when working with foreign attorneys or law-firms.

Since 2012 he is of counsel to Wiener – Soto – Caparros Law firm. Alejandro is a senior litigator of the Firm, advising on civil and commercial litigation, arbitration and insolvency matters. He is also registered as an intellectual and industrial property agent and is in the process of earning an accounting degree.

Alejandro is a frequent speaker and participant in symposia, seminars, conferences and debates related to his practice. He has been recognized by Chambers and Partners publications as a “leading practitioner” in dispute resolution.
