Locations: San Salvador
Analysis: ECIJA (El Salvador) opened in 2018, and has seen steady growth since then, recently adding to expertise in IP and technology law, with a focus on litigation. The firm established its pro bono programme in 2020, seeking to help organisations affected by the global shutdown; separately, it also provided comprehensive IP advice (including licensing and copyright protection) to online supermarket Superea, which opened at the height of the health emergency. Clients such as Motocity have previously turned to the firm for guidance concerning its IP strategies in El Salvador, as well as plastics manufacturer Toto on the implementation of a trademark protection system throughout Central America.
