Bogotá, Colombia – Since opening in October 2020 with Tax and Private Wealth Partner Rodrigo Castillo Cottin, Rimon’s Bogotá office has expanded to a team of five.

Rimon is pleased to welcome attorney Christian Escudero Caviedes to the firm. Mr. Escudero focuses his practice on tax. He has experience in tax consulting and advises clients on issues including national, territorial, direct, and indirect tax. He also advises on the application of the double taxation agreements to help clients engaged in international business. Mr. Escudero was previously a Tax Consultant with EY Colombia.
