Mariano is admitted to practice in England and Wales, New York and Chile. As a solicitor in England and Wales, Mariano is personally regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) but practises through Trancura Legal Consulting Ltd, a non-SRA Regulated entity under the rules in force, meaning the legal services offered and the professional indemnity insurance terms will be restricted to reflect Trancura Legal Consulting Ltd is not a firm of solicitors. We do not act for consumers but for sophisticated organisations and are happy explain this innovative structure further upon request.
