“The incorporation of Amory Heine as a partner is excellent news for DLA Piper Chile,” said Matías Zegers, co-managing partner of DLA Piper Chile. “She will enhance our tax practice and add great value for our clients in a market where she has an extraordinary reputation. Amory has developed extensive knowledge of areas that are very important to our clients who are facing regulatory changes on a regular basis, both locally and in cross-border operations. Her multicultural experience, due to her education in various countries, also allows her to recognize key cultural differences that are highly relevant when doing business globally.”
“I am happy and honored to be part of DLA Piper,” Heine said. “Together with this great team of lawyers, we will provide top-tier service and tax advice to our domestic and international clients.”
Heine joins from Rojas y Cía., where she has been a partner since 2012.

She holds a law degree from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and a master's degree in tax law from the Universidad de Chile, and has several postgraduate degrees, including a diploma in tax litigation and tax auditing from Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez. Heine was appointed a member of the Board of Experts of the Chilean Bar Association, in the area of tax law, for her outstanding professional career and contribution to this discipline.
With the addition of Heine, DLA Piper Chile now has nine partners and nearly 50 lawyers practicing across a broad range of areas.
