The firm combines the expertise of more than half a century with the dynamism and energy of a group of young professionals who make the firm today.

Most of them develop academic activity; and many of them have completed international studies and worked in some of the most reputed law firms in the United States, Europe, Mexico and Brazil. Almost all of them are bilingual and are culturally familiar with the international business world: they understand client needs and what is expected from a professional.
