  • Fraser International Ltd, based in the UK assists international clients to identify new business relationships. We do this by being able to access our own network of local partners that are expert in supporting business in their local markets. Fraser International has worked with BCD for since 2016 and has found their in-market support to be of exceptional value. Help in understanding the local business culture, identifying potential partners and brokering discussions has been their key in-put. At all times both Julian and Ricardo have remained focused and determined to help us and our clients succeed

    Bill Fraser – Managing Director - Fraser International Ltd

  • I met Ricardo in 2014 when he acted for me in the sale of property in Cartagena. It was a fortuitous meeting because I am pleased to say Ricardo has continued to represent me on a number of other dealings and his approach to both legal and business advice has been consistently solid and balanced by his approach and solid understanding on how the legal system and business works in Colombia. Another advantage is the opportunity to discuss broader issues with Ricardo given his experience having lived overseas for some time he adds a broader position than others in his capacity and can do so in English which removes the impediment of lengthy translation services. I look forward to continuing to work with Ricardo, and will have no hesitation recommending his experienced approach to others

    Mr. Shane O’Connell

  • Julian and I worked together in recruitment at Robert Half International (London) ... an individual who is able to develop strong and lasting relationships with people from all walks of life, and I would not hesitate to recommend him
