POP PEPA joins forces with Martinez-Echevarria of Spain to create regional Spanish powerhouse.

December 3, 2010

POP PEPA and Martínez-Echevarría, Pérez y Ferrero Abogados are pleased to announce that both firms will now cooperate henceforth on the Romanian and Spanish markets on a “best friends” basis.

As of January 2011, the Bucharest office of Martínez-Echevarría will be integrated into the offices of POP PEPA, formulating a new consolidated “Spanish Desk” for the purpose of serving Spanish companies doing business in Romania.  The new relationship will allow POP PEPA to extend its portfolio of foreign clients, especially in regards to Spanish clients, whilst Martínez-Echevarría will benefit from a solid local platform.

Martínez-Echevarría is one of the top 20 law firms in Spain, with over 20 offices in 12 countries.  The firm has been active on the Romanian market already for four years prior to its new association with POP PEPA.  Martínez-Echevarría has chosen to consolidate its position in Romania with POP PEPA in furtherance of its regional strategy to work with only top quality local partners, chosen from the most dynamic law firms in emerging market countries. Commenting on the new joint venture, managing partner Steven Pepa said: “I am very pleased by this new development, and I greatly look forward to working with out Spanish colleagues, which give us access to a new and exciting client base.”
