Our service offering encompasses both prevention and defense. Firstly, we advise clients on preventive measures through compliance programs, business policies, risk identification, administrative standards and organizational control requirements regulated by the national criminal system. We work proactively to protect our clients on a broad range of topics including corporate integrity, anti-bribery and anti-corruption, industrial accidents and spills, toxic torts and environmental damage, oil and gas crimes, anti-money laundering (AML), insider trading and securities enforcement, personal data protection, injuries and corporate manslaughter, among others.
Secondly, we offer advice and legal representation in investigations and in all phases of white-collar litigation, defending our clients from any charges that may be brought against them. Our extensive experience and compliance expertise allows us to provide clients with advice covering alternative justice, plea bargain and negotiation of remedial agreements, and criminal litigation related to federal and state investigations and indictments against corporations and their directors.
Our rapidly growing team includes a former Head of Unit and Specialized Prosecutor of the Attorney General’s Office, litigators and environmental law specialists. The team was formed to help clients deal with more stringent cross-border regulations and enforcement measures, the tightening of Mexico’s regulatory framework in relation anti-corruption, and a notable increase in complex litigation activity.
We have historically represented many public companies trading in the Mexican and global markets and, as such we have advised our clients in dealing with potential securities laws violations resulting from investigations or corporate scandals.
