The Story Begins

In 1997, Jaime A. Treviño took a decisive step towards fulfilling one of his dreams: founding a Mexican law firm which would offer corporate legal services complying with the high service and quality standards which are expected from the main legal players in the international law firm business.  During his previous seven years of legal practice, Jaime had participated in a considerable number of sophisticated and multi-million dollar transactions as Corporate Legal Counsel at Cemex, and as a foreign associate at Skadden Arps’ New York office.

In September of 1997, the doors of a small office in San Pedro Garza Garcia, the most prestigious financial and business district of Monterrey, opened for the first time.  J.A. Treviño Abogados started practicing law with two attorneys and with the support of a number of Jaime’s colleagues who trusted his professionalisms and talent as an excellent attorney.  Today, Jaime still refers to J.A. Treviño Abogados’ first clients as the “Founding Clients”, whom proudly continue being active clients of the firm after thirteen years of teaming-up with them.
The practice areas, which started-up as four, have duplicated.  The firm has also duplicated its office space, and its legal team includes two partners, five associates, three of counsel attorneys and a number of paralegals.  The firm’s client list exceeds 80 companies, ranging from small family-owned entities to Fortune 500 corporations.  Some of the most prestigious global law firms are also the firm’s clients, trusting the firm’s team for certain of their client’s transactions in Mexico.

In 2010, J.A. Treviño Abogados began using the short-name JATA, adopting such term from its use by clients, attorneys within the firm and colleagues.
