Estudio Central, led by partners  Juan Valdivieso González, Sebastián López Hidalgo, Xavier Molina López, and Santiago Vega Malo, has broad experience in all branches of law, such as constitutional law, tax law, and intellectual property law. 

According to Gonzalo González, managing partner of ECIJA GPA in Ecuador: "We always look at Azuay and particularly Cuenca as a necessary destination to provide modern and quality legal services”.

Cuenca's commerce and industry are not only an example of good corporate governance but also contribute significantly to the national GDP. Just one business group in this region represents 4% of GDP,” he added.

“ECIJA GPA establishes a new style of legal services that adequately and efficiently accompanies new ventures. With Estudio Central today integrated into ECIJA GPA, we look with optimism to the Ecuador of today.”

“We are aiming for a better future of equality, freedom of commerce, and growth of all industries. We are here to stay, hand in hand with partners from Cuenca who know their people. It is enough to stop in this city to observe its businesses' creativity and permanent growth. Cuenca attracts investment in tourism, real estate construction, the industry of all kinds and currently mining," González added.

In addition to offices in Ecuador, ECIJA has a presence in 13 Latin American and Caribbean countries and is headquartered in Spain. The firm also has offices in Portugal.
