Since Rodrigo Méndez Solís was a student, he has been very attracted to new technologies, with a deep interest in change and innovation. His passion for technology encouraged him to focus his academic and professional practice in telecommunications, data protection, and new technologies—topics unfamiliar to many lawyers.

His interest led him to pursue an LL.M. in business, telecommunications, and audiovisual rights at one of the most prestigious universities in Madrid. He was ranked as one of the top students of his class after writing his master's thesis titled "Legal Implications of Cloud Computing."

To complement his specialization, Rodrigo obtained a postgraduate diploma in copyright and its regulation in the digital world. Rodrigo's specialized degree makes him an IT lawyer who clearly understands his clients' requirements regarding the technical aspects of technological systems, allowing him to provide certain legal solutions to complex projects.

His enthusiasm for all things digital, including telecommunications, cloud computing, ISPs, the Internet of Things, drones, net neutrality, BitCoin, privacy, and data protection, have made Rodrigo an accomplished telecommunications and privacy lawyer in Mexico. Rodrigo's experience and dedication has been recognized by his clients, which include governmental authorities, telecommunications carriers and resellers, broadcasting and technology companies, oilfield communication companies, wholesale telecommunications service providers, ISPs, media and entertainment companies, OTT service providers, social networks, pharmaceuticals, financial entities, call centers, fashion stores, and commercial industries.
