Dentons cracks Central America as key local player Muñoz Global joins network

Dentons has scaled up its Central American ambitions with plans to combine with regional firm Muñoz Global.

The combination, if approved by both partnerships, will give Dentons a presence in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama in early 2017. The global firm will merge with 53-lawyer Muñoz Global, a firm newly-created by Arias & Muñoz founders José Antonio Muñoz and Pedro Muñoz, who have split away from their former firm which will contrive to operate as Arias in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
