The British directory Chambers & Partners has recognized ECIJA in its new global edition among the best international firms in the market in Corporate / M&A / Commercial, Intellectual Property and Dispute Resolution

Chambers & Partners, one of the main international directories of the legal profession, today published its 2020 global edition, placing ECIJA in top-ranking positions and recognizing the leadership of 9 of its partners in their respective specialties.

Chambers & Partners highlights from ECIJA that the Firm “offers an impressive list of the main clients of the telecommunications, media and technology sectors, including commercial, regulatory and data protection matters.”

On the other hand, the ranking strengthens the firm’s growing presence in Latin America, where the Firm has been carrying out, since 2017, an ambitious expansion plan with results in 11 countries. As a result, ECIJA stands out as a “well-equipped firm to act in cross-border matters”, which benefits from an international network with offices in the main jurisdictions of Latin America. Clients highlight ECIJA’s lawyers for “their practicality, direct and agile response”, as well as for their ability to “understand the client easily and identify problems and solutions quickly.”

Chambers & Partners has a background of 30 years qualifying the best firms and lawyers in 200 countries around the world, which makes their study one of the most respected in the legal field. The directory conducts an exhaustive annual investigation, which takes into account the opinion of the clients advised; the quality and magnitude of the cases or transactions carried out by each firm; and its market positioning. The result is the classification of firms, their areas of expertise and their lawyers in levels or “bands.”

For Hugo Écija, the Firm’s President: “This year we have not only consolidated the leadership that the directory has recognized us for years, but we have improved our ranking position in key jurisdictions for us, which invites us to continue working on the international growth of the Firm.”
