Norton Rose Fulbright is poised to open in Mexico later this year, according to sources.
The yet to be announced development comes amid renewed interest in Mexico which remains Latin America’s second economy.
Over 25 international law firms already operate in Mexico, including Baker & McKenzie which has 5 offices in the country. Other international players including Dentons, DLA Piper, Garrigues, Greenberg Traurig, and Uria Menendez have launched in Mexico in more recent times.
The office – which would be the firm´s fourth in Latin America – would cater for clients seeking to capitalise on opportunities in Mexico and the wider Pacific Alliance region, particularly in the energy sector
Norton Rose Fulbright has 160 lawyers in its Latin America-focused practice group. Globally, the firm has over 3800 lawyers and 50 offices including Bogotá, Caracas and Rio de Janeiro.
When contacted for this note, the law firm declined to comment.
