Mata & Asociados was founded in 1984 and is built on two generations of family members in the Mexican legal profession (with a third-generation underway!).
The first generation of Mata lawyers included America Mata and Sergio Mata. Before joining the firm America Mata sat as a Judge for the Mexico City High Court for over two decades. America’s brother, Arturo Mata Sr., worked several years as General Counsel and Vice-President of Mexican subsidiaries of Fortune 500 such as CBS Records and AMF Industries.
Rosendo López Mata, Diana López Mata, and Arturo Mata Jr. represent the second generation of the Mata family. They earned their law degrees from top Mexican law schools and have continued the tradition established by their relatives.
Before joining the firm Diana López Mata worked as Assistant General Counsel to the largest Mexican conglomerate, Grupo Carso-Inbursa (parent company of Telmex and several other companies listed in the New York Stock Exchange). Diana contributed to Mata & Asociados her expertise in securities and corporate finance. Regrettably, she passed away at the peak of her career but left behind a tremendous legacy for the firm.
The third generation of Mata lawyers is underway, with some of the children of the current partners enthusiastically preparing to attend law school.
Since its establishment, Mata & Asociados has furthered its founding partner’s pledge and transformed it into a leading law firm in Mexico known by the excellence of its legal services.
