The Women in Business Law Awards, one of the most recognized awards for diversity in the legal sector, has published the 2022 finalists for its 11th edition in the Americas, placing the law firm ECIJA Mexico as one of the country’s benchmark firms for diversity.
ECIJA has demonstrated its global commitment to diversity at all levels where it has a presence and, as a result, has been nominated for Best International Firm in Latin America.
