CareyI extend my heartiest congratulations to my friend Jorge Carey who has received a lifetime achievement award from Latin Lawyer. During his formative years Carey, who is chairman of the largest law firm in Chile, completed a Master of Comparative Law as a Fulbright Scholar and worked for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. His achievements since are too numerous to mention, but you can read about them on the Carey website. Currently, he is president of his firm’s executive committee, president of Moneda Chile Fund, vice-president of Minera Quebrada Blanca, Enaex, AFP Provida and director of Cemento Melón, Masisa, and Instituto Libertad.

Jorge Carey is an ongoing inspiration to me, both in his personal and his business life. He appears to believe that the lowest acceptable rank is #1, and I am certain that it is this quality in part that has led him to this award and the numerous others he has received over the years.

Congratulations, Jorge!

As always, I am interested to know your thoughts any matter related to the law. Your comments are welcome below and you can contact me directly via email.
