My name is Patricia Ochoa. I am the founding partner of OCHOA SILVA ABOGADOS. After studying Law in the Universidad del Rosario in Bogota, Colombia I fulfilled my dream of studying in the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris, where I specialized in Financial and Banking Law.

Back in Colombia I worked several years with Citibank until the year 2001 when I founded this law firm. Now, almost 20 years later we are still around, thrilled to serve our clients in acquiring, protecting and defending their assets.

We are proud to maintain a very personalized attention to our esteemed clients, who for years have trusted us with their affairs, as well as an excellent relationship with our network of worldwide correspondents.

On behalf of my team and myself: We are at your service.
