El Salvador > Law firm and leading lawyer rankings

Editorial

Although El Salvador’s economy is expected to expand by 2.4% in 2017, the beginning of the year saw a slowdown in activity in the country’s transportation and construction sector as well as in the mining industry. The country remains –to some degree– the region’s problem child with a legacy of post-civil war crime and violence, political uncertainty and a certain geographical vulnerability to natural disasters negatively affecting its potential for economic growth, social stability and sustainable development. However, strong remittance flows from the United States and a rebound in investment continue to keep the economy not only afloat but registering gentle growth.

While foreign investment activity might be subject to fluctuations, both regional firms and domestic legal practices have stood their ground: while Arias and Consortium Legal tackle the majority of big-ticket transactions in both the banking and corporate arena, the economy still provides enough work for smaller entities such as Lexincorp, García & Bodán and Guandique Segovia Quintanilla – LatamLex. Equally, the IP field remained busy in 2016, with domestic firms such as Espino Nieto & Asociados and Romero Pineda & Asociados remaining the first port of call for sophisticated IP advice.
