Brazilian and Mexican firms among founders of new ‘Alliance of the Americas’ network

Four law firms located in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the USA have formed a new legal network called The Legal Alliance of the Americas.


The firms – Arizpe, Valdés & Marcos (Mexico), Estudio Malis & Asoc. (Argentina), Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, PLC (USA), and Rothman Sperling Padovan Duarte (Brazil) – will remain independent, according to a joint statement, with additional firms expected to join the network in the near future.

The statement added that the four firms comprising the alliance have already been working with each other “on common clients and transactions, and formalised their close cooperation in order to provide clients with even better service and responsiveness throughout the Americas”.

It continued: “Economically, the Americas have become an important and powerful economic cluster, with more and more European and Asian companies establishing operations and expanding business throughout multiple countries in North and South America, thereby competing with companies already operating in the Americas.” 

The statement said the alliance will enable member firms to offer clients a “seamless services across the jurisdictions where they operate, by pooling resources and expertise”.
