Costa Rica’s Mauricio París represented ECIJA Central America at the Interact Law conference in Lisbon, May 2019. The Latin America and Caribbean managing partner introduced Interact Law’s new Central America members, ECIJA Central America.
Entire region: from Costa Rica to Puerto Rico
The firm covers the entire region, offering joint services to clients in Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and soon Panama and Puerto Rico. With 20 partners and 65 lawyers, ECIJA Central America offers full service to their clients.
Shared workspace, open office
París is ambitious: ‘We aim to be the leading regional firm in Central America and the Caribbean in all M&A, dispute resolution, energy and technology practices.’ As he showed the firm’s new San José office, París described some inspiring new ways of working in a shared workspace. ‘No one has their own desk and all lawyers and staff share the same open office. Lots of us also work a few days a week from home. Or from Starbucks. As part of this, all of us are forced to visit our clients’ offices when we have a meeting. Clients really appreciate this approach’, Mauricio assures.
