The new alliance of Taylor Wessing and ECIJA enhances the already competitive international offering for technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) and life sciences & healthcare sector clients with interests in Europe and around the world.
Taylor Wessing, renowned for its outstanding expertise in its areas of strategic focus including TMT, life sciences & healthcare, banking & finance, infrastructure and real estate, has entered into a new strategic alliance in order to support its numerous clients with interests and growth opportunities in Spain and Portugal, and in Latin American markets.
ECIJA is a leading law firm in Spain and Portugal renowned for its outstanding expertise in the TMT sector as well as being the most innovative law firm in Continental Europe, according to the Financial Times.
The collaboration of the two law firms, both of which have an esteemed reputation in the legal industry and have demonstrated consistent growth in recent years, is in response to the continued investment and expansion of TMT and life sciences companies worldwide. Those companies will benefit from specialist sector support and a strong network of experts across many jurisdictions in Europe and beyond.
“Spain and Portugal are important countries for our clients and their business development. The expansion of our presence is part of our strategy to support our clients wherever they invest,” Taylor Wessing’s CEE Managing Partner, Raimund Cancola, commented on the alliance.
“In ECIJA we have found a partner with whom we share strategy, values and corporate culture. This alliance is an opportunity for both our organisations to become global leaders in TMT,” added Ewelina Stobiecka, Managing Partner of Taylor Wessing Poland.
“This alliance confirms our aspirations to become one of the most recognisable law firms in the TMT area in the era of the ongoing digital revolution,” said Przemysław Walasek, Co-managing Partner of Taylor Wessing office in Poland and head of the intellectual property and new technology law team.
The new strategic alliance for Taylor Wessing and ECIJA creates a combined network of over 3000 professionals and 500 partners in 62 offices in 33 jurisdictions around the world.
