Pacheco Coto Shakes Up Legal Industry With EY Merger

EY Law challenges the legal industry. Other service firms are following the "full regional service".

EY (formerly Ernst & Young), one of the largest professional services firms in the world, will absorb prominent Costa Rica founded law firm Pacheco Coto on January 1, 2018.

Pacheco Coto announced the news this week saying the deal creates one of the larger firms in the region with a combined headcount of more than 155 attorneys spread across Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominican Republic. They will be supported by some 125 non-legal professionals.

Our purpose is to create the most successful legal and professional services firm in the region and today we reaffirm this objective by incorporating the great talent of Pacheco Coto’s partners and attorneys,” said Rafael Sayagués, the current managing partner of the tax and law practices of EY in the region.
