During the INTA annual meeting held in Orlando, the new firm held a reception to announce that Avahlegal and Lerroux & Fernández- Pacheco have become AvaLerroux.

According to AvaLerroux representatives, the operation brings together a new integrated multijurisdictional platform and has an expansion strategy in the above mentioned countries. The firm now has multiple practices, such as telecommunications and information technology, social security, labor law, immigration and energy. Clients are distributed among the health, food, consumer goods, information technology, energy, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, entertainment and drinks & alcohol sectors.

 

This merger between an Iberian and a Latin American law firm is further proof that Iberian law firms are planning to growth their presence in the region. Earlier this year Cuatrecasas, Goncalves Pereira arrived in  Mexico, Garrigues opened a new office in Santiago de Chile and Philippi Prietocarrizosa & Uria merged with two Peruvian law firms.
