ECIJA confirms alliance wth Taylor Wessing

ECIJA has confirmed a strategic alliance with Anglo-German firm Taylor Wessing as part of its international growth strategy


With the aim of consolidating its position as a leading international TMT giant, and although this is a non-exclusive agreement, both firms will support their clients through a combined network of over 3,000 professionals and 500 partners in 62 offices in 53 jurisdictions around the world.

Taylor Wessing is a leading international law firm recognised for its outstanding expertise in areas such as TMT, Intellectual Property, Energy, Pharma and Healthcare, among others. Chambers and Partners or Legal500 are some of the directories that place it on the podium of Anglo-Saxon firms in the aforementioned areas.

This collaboration agreement responds to the exponential growth of some of the strategic sectors for both firms, which aspire to consolidate their position as a world reference in an increasingly competitive, global and specialised market. Thus, they have one of the most powerful multidisciplinary teams with presence in the five main jurisdictions in Europe: Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, France and Germany.

According to Hugo Écija, president of ECIJA, “this alliance confirms our commitment to consolidate our position as an international firm and as a benchmark in the Digital Economy.”

Alejandro Touriño, managing partner of the firm said “we identified a huge opportunity in a joint approach to the market, creating a leading global key player in TMT. In Taylor Wessing we have found a perfect partner with whom we share strategy, values and corporate culture.”

Shane Gleghorn, managing partner of Taylor Wessing in the UK and co-chair of the Global Council, said: “The Iberian Peninsula is an attractive and increasingly important region for business growth. The expansion of our European offering into the Euro 5 area supports our current strategy, while investor interest and opportunities in technology, life sciences and real estate remain high at the current juncture. This alliance substantially enhances the collective offering of both firms in Europe and globally. Our clients can continue to expect the excellence and innovation for which both firms are known, with more competitive connections and a deep understanding of their markets.”

According to Olaf Kranz, managing partner of Taylor Wessing in Germany and Co-Chair of the Global Council, “Like ours, ECIJA’s strategy is focused on advising our clients and developing new opportunities in sectors that are strategic for both firms. ECIJA’s success and track record is impressive and there has always been a clear alignment with our values and symmetry between our strategies and core focus areas.”
