Mexico’s Acedo Santamarina names new partner, counsel

Until now, Enrique has held the position of senior associate in the corporate and M&A areas, having joined the firm in 2013.

His extensive and outstanding experience in transactions related to restructuring, public procurement, telecommunications, antitrust and anti-money laundering has allowed him to consolidate his growth in the firm in these areas, and to merit promotion to the partnership, the firm said in a statement.

For his part, Roberto Altamirano has overseen complex matters in the litigation area of the firm since 2011, having acquired significant experience in handling civil, commercial and administrative litigation, as well as in constitutional and arbitration proceedings.

In his new capacity, he will lead the firm’s litigation area.

Andrés Acedo, founding partner of the firm, believes that these appointments will help the firm continue to evolve and adapt to the challenges that law firms face in the coming years.

“We are very pleased with the appointments of Enrique López and Roberto Altamirano, because regardless of their valuable contribution to the firm in their respective practice areas, they are people who share the vision, strategy and values that we have been building over the years,” Acedo said.

Based in Mexico City, Acedo Santamarina was founded in 2009 by lawyers with more than 20 years of experience.
