Since its establishment, Galicia Abogados has been considered one of Mexico’s most respected law firms and a market leader.
Galicia Abogados is recognised for its participation in sophisticated transactions, its multidisciplinary approach and leadership in five strategic sectors: banking and finance, energy and infrastructure, private equity, real estate, and regulated industries. It is a multidisciplinary firm that differentiates itself by achieving greater specialisation by sectors, which are addressed through the combination of its practice areas and is reinforced by its arbitration and commercial litigation as well as by its administrative and tax litigation practices. It is also regarded as being a solution-oriented firm, whose lawyers proactively facilitate transactions and make business happen.
The firm seeks and trains highly qualified professionals with international presence, most of whom have studied at prestigious universities and have worked at leading law firms in the United States, Europe and Latin America.
Teamwork, its dynamic approach to business, its drive and commitment to be its clients’ preferred business partner whilst maintaining a human quality, and strong values and empathy, makes Galicia Abogados stand out as the leading and reliable law firm that confirms its purpose.
The firm and each of its members are committed to generate growth for its clients, its community and its people.
The firm works with a network of high profile international law firms throughout North and Latin America, Europe and Asia, in order to support its clients with a global reach and strong local business knowledge and sensibility.
The firm focuses not only on helping its clients to fairly express their interests, but also characterises itself for taking into consideration the point of view of others, thus achieving results which are innovative and in line with its clients’ needs and businesses.
Over the last 24 years, the firm has had the privilege of being part of landmark transactions which have helped build a more competitive Mexico facing the challenges of the 21st Century and allow the firm to continue its drive to generate growth, lead the market with social responsibility and strong values. The firm is committed and strives to make sure that each acquisition, each securities issuance, each energy and infrastructure project it helps develop and finance, and each transaction that it participates in, translates into economic development and social benefits, for which it is devoted to drive the growth: (i) of its clients, helping them to make the best possible decisions in order to improve their business performance; (ii) of the firm, ensuring financial sustainability in order to achieve transcendence by investing time and talent in projects which go beyond its business and which benefit Mexico; and (iii) of its human capital, creating the institutional conditions needed to meet their maximum potential, by creating incentives, training opportunities and personal development.
