Ecuador’s Heka and Zion announce strategic alliance

The alliance seeks for forge synergies between the two companies, which will allow their clients to access a wider offering, across both legal and fiduciary services, the firms said in a statement.

For its part, HEKA will provide legal support to ZION in Quito and throughout Ecuador, especially in the southern Sierra region, allowing it to include fiduciary services within its offering while at the same time increasing its presence nationally alongside ZION.

“We have been working together for several months on various projects, and the strong relationship that has developed between the two companies has led us to make this alliance with a long-term view,” Santiago Alban, a partner at HEKA, said.

Rafael Sandoval, general manager at ZION, said the two firms are “looking to mutually complement each other so as to have better coverage for what the two brands represent.”    

As a joint team, the firms seek not only to provide the advice their clients need, but also to educate, through the generation of academic content, drawing from both the fiduciary business and its new legal ally.

HEKA Law was created with the aim of offering legal services through intelligent solutions. All in a proactive, ethical and efficient way.

The law firm has a team of highly-qualified professionals with multidiscipline expertise to attend to the cities of Quito and Cuenca, as well as strategic partners in the country’s most important cities.

In continual growth, the firm announced last August the addition of José Manuel Albornoz as a new partner in its finance and tax practice, and who is considered one of the most experienced professionals in the country in tax, financial and accounting matters, bringing with him a new focus to the firm.

ZION Administradora de Fondos y Fideicomisos is a specialist firm offering fiduciary services that allow clients to make savings and streamline their performance.
