ECIJA enters Mexico with Chacón & Rodríguez merger

Spanish law firm ECIJA has announced its merger with Mexican firm Chacón & Rodríguez, marking the former's entry into Mexico, the 11th Latin American country in which it has a presence and making it the Spanish firm with the largest presence in the region.

ECIJA MéxicoThe firm's Mexico City office is its 22nd regional location. 

The Mexican team, which will work under the ECIJA brand, will be led by the new partners of the firm Ricardo Chacón, Joaquín Rodríguez, Alejandro Linares and Armando Salinas, who will be supported by a team of 21 professionals, aiming to grow significantly in the following months.

ECIJA’s new office in Mexico is a multidisciplinary law firm with ample professional experience, specialising in advising Mexican and foreign clients in international transactions, mergers and acquisitions, litigations, project finance, aeronautical law, compliance, technology law, telecommunications laws, pharmaceutical laws, energy laws and real estate laws, among others.

This latest merger brings the firm's headcount to 96 partners and more than 500 professionals spread across 13 countries: Spain, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Chile, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, the US and Mexico.

Ricardo Chacón, founding partner of Chacón & Rodríguez, and now managing partner at ECIJA Mexico, says, “both firms share not only the business perspective and distinction in dealing with costumers, but also equal values, a commitment to diversity and meritocracy in our structures”.

Regarding ECIJA's decision to enter the Mexican market, Alejandro Touriño (pictured, far left), managing partner at ECIJA, says, “ECIJA’s bet on this country is due to the firm’s obligation towards its clients in order to provide them with global coverage in their transactions. Spain is the second-largest international investor in Mexico, and we see how the investment appetite is going to continue to grow”.

The merger with Chacón & Rodríguez is an important step in the firm’s internationalisation strategy, he says. 

ECIJA has merged with 15 firms during the last two years, and nine mergers took place in 2019.

ECIJA announced a joint venture with Chinese firm Grandall, the fifth largest law firm in that country, as part of its policy to consolidate as one of the top-tier firms on the global stage by connecting its clients with the whole world.
