Mayora & Mayora expands its presence in Honduras
Mayora & Mayora, a leading law firm in Central America that has been in business for more than 55 years, has opened an office in Roatán, bringing the number of its offices in the country to three, in addition to its offices in Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula.

Mayora & Mayora is a regionally integrated firm, offering a direct response to clients seeking sophisticated legal support across a number of jurisdictions.
