Rimon's opening of its new office in Bogota, Colombia, and welcoming of tax and estate planning partner Rodrigo Castillo Cottin to the firm was covered by Law.com, Latin Lawyer, Leaders League, The International Comparative Legal Guides, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law.

"RIMON’S RISE - This may be Rimon Law’s time to shine. The alternative law firm, which is well-suited to functioning during the pandemic in that most of its lawyers work remotely by design and its compensation model relies on keeping overhead costs low, is growing rapidly. Most recently, as Amy Guthrie reported, the firm entered Latin America with the hire of a  private client and tax partner in Bogotá, Colombia. Rodrigo Castillo Cottin joins Rimon from Baker McKenzie, where he spent more than 15 years, starting in Caracas, Venezuela and eventually rising to a partner role in Bogotá. Bogotá marks the seventh new office that Rimon has opened in 2020, and the fourth international location, following newly minted offices in Sydney, Berlin, and Dubai." - Law.com
