Since its opening in 2011, Greenberg Traurig’s Mexico City ofﬁce has grown to approximately 100 lawyers and staff. All of the approximately 60 lawyers are bilingual, including many who are dually licensed to practice in Mexico and the United States. The office is a key element of the ﬁrm’s global platform and its robust Latin America practice, with attorneys overseeing high-profile transactions and matters in the areas of corporate, financial, regulatory and compliance, energy and infrastructure, real estate, and litigation.
“The Mexico City office has played a pivotal role in delivering value for local and international clients, further advancing the ﬁrm’s long-held commitment to Latin America. Ten years is just the beginning for us here, although we have been advising clients in the region for six decades,” said José Raz Guzmán, managing shareholder of the Mexico City office and co-chair of the firm's Latin America Practice. “The next decade we expect will bring continued strengthening of key practice areas, which are critical for serving the needs of businesses into the future. We are an opportunistic law firm, and we grow strategically as we find the right people who are able to best meet the evolving needs of our clients.”
Attorneys in the Mexico City office remain a key part of the firm’s award-winning Latin America Practice, which has consistently received global recognition from various legal guides including Chambers & Partners.
“Greenberg Traurig is one unified firm across our 40 global offices, unlike most of our competitors in the Mexican and U.S. markets. We are one culture with unified finances and consistently high excellence everywhere. We are committed to empowering, trusting, and respecting our people here on the ground while providing state-of-the-art legal work, best-in-class technology, an unparalleled footprint, and a unique commitment to prompt and positive client service across the globe,” said Greenberg Traurig Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum.
“Our Latin America brand will always be core to the firm, and our Latin America team is one of the largest and strongest in the world,” said Greenberg Traurig CEO Brian L. Duffy. “This is an area we intend to continue growing to meet the needs of our clients. We are proud that we can help clients identify and capitalize on business opportunities, both within Mexico and in almost every market across Latin America and a broad range of industries.”
The Mexico City office also plays a critical role in the firm’s diversity and pro bono programs, having been recognized by governmental and professional organizations and publications numerous times over the last decade, including Best Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year and Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+.
The firm will commemorate its 10th anniversary in Mexico with a series of informational webinars and a client celebration. The seminars, to be presented Oct. 25 - 28, will focus on topics important to clients involved in today’s global business and legal arena.
“The Mexico City office chose to include client-focused seminars as part of its celebration to honor the firm’s leadership position in the region and say thank you to those who have made a difference in our past and will continue to influence our future -- our clients,” said Juan Manuel González Bernal, who is administrative shareholder of the firm’s Mexico City office and co-chair of the firm’s global Infrastructure Practice.
