For over thirty years, Gonzalez Calvillo has challenged the standards and rewritten the full-service firm model with a solution-oriented approach, evolving the practice of law in Mexico.
The firm is driven by the commitment of doing things differently, having a deep knowledge of the Mexican legal ecosystem, its behaviour and interaction with today’s globalised business environment. That is how over two hundred people, between partners, counsels, associates and administrative employees are responsible for making Gonzalez Calvillo one of Mexico’s leading law firms.
The firm's services are designed to help clients solve the toughest and most complex legal issues while finding the best solution for each case. By understanding clients’ business culture and strategy, the firm establish a close and strategic alliance to enable them to achieve more.
The firm has the best minds in every area and encourages its teams to work collaboratively and share their knowledge to provide comprehensive legal solutions. The firm has put together a stellar group of lawyers — most of whom received part of their academic education in the United States and Europe and have experience working abroad as international associates in leading foreign law firms.
The firm's client roster is well diversified, as it represents a blend of local and multinational corporations across regulated and non-regulated industries, such as domestic and international financial institutions, governmental entities and individuals, including a substantial number of Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of legal matters.
The firm has been recognised by internationally renowned legal publications for its proficiency in several fields of law. These recognitions have been granted to both practice areas and lawyers individually. It is also proud of consistently leading award-winning transactions, which has been possible thanks to clients’ trust and faith in its business.
It has been proven that the firm's multidisciplinary approach reveals great insights and creates productive discussions that lead to smart strategic thinking and bold decision-making. That is why the firm has a broad offer of practice areas that act as one to deliver integrated solutions.
MAIN AREAS OF PRACTICE:
Legal solutions are not practice area specific, that is why the firm's 23 practice areas act as one to deliver comprehensive solutions to its clients. For each case, the firm creates tailored multidisciplinary teams of lawyers who work together to achieve that.
