MEXICO CITY – Nov. 10, 2016 – The Mexico City office of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will mark its 5th anniversary with a series of events, including client seminars and an anniversary celebration November 17, 2016 in Mexico City that will gather more than 200 clients, staff, and colleagues from across the firm to celebrate the office’s milestone year.

Since its opening in 2011, Greenberg Traurig’s Mexico City office has grown to almost 60 lawyers, all of whom are bilingual and many of whom are dual-licensed to practice in Mexico and the U.S. With an extensive track record of award-winning transactions and a proven commitment to excellence, the office in Mexico City is a key element of the firm’s global platform.

“The Mexico City office has played a pivotal role in delivering value and tangible results for local and international clients, further advancing our firm’s long-held commitment to Latin America,” said Patricia Menéndez-Cambó, Vice Chair of Greenberg Traurig.

“Our Mexico City team has guided clients through complex transactions and regulatory matters, such as anti-corruption, compliance, and antitrust issues,” added Yosbel A. Ibarra, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Latin American and Iberian Practice. “Our team has also helped clients take   advantage of opportunities that have become available in the Mexican market, including as a result of recent regulatory reforms.”

Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum said the firm decided to take a different approach in Mexico City compared to what other international firms had done in the country: “We did not want to focus exclusively on our international clients doing business in Mexico; for us, it was also important to build a full-service Mexican practice with national clients in Mexico,” Rosenbaum said. “We took a different approach to the traditional Mexican law firm model and to the way that international firms had operated in Mexico. As we have done in so many other markets, we innovated and challenged the status quo with great success, relying on our culture of collaboration and building value for our clients.”

Looking ahead to the future, Mexico City Managing Shareholder José Raz-Guzmán added: “The pride and unity that an anniversary inspires makes this an ideal time to come together with our clients and friends to reflect on our mutual past successes and future opportunities. As we have always done, we will continue to focus our efforts on delivering superior client service and helping clients achieve their business objectives.”
