C reel signs collaboration agreement with the UNHCR


Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enríquez S.C., is the first Mexican Law Firm to sign a collaboration agreement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in order to aid in Pro Bono legal work.

It is with great pride that we share that CREEL, GARCÍA-CUÉLLAR, AIZA Y ENRÍQUEZ S.C. has signed a Collaboration Agreement with The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) under our Pro Bono program, to support those individuals who seek asylum and refugee status in Mexico. With this alliance, we are the first Mexican law firm to become a UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) Pro bono Ally.

The UNHCR, present in the southern Mexican border states of Chiapas, Veracruz and Tabasco, in Mexico City and in the northern state of Coahuila, supports the Mexican government’s efforts in identifying individuals in need of international protection, strengthening the Mexican asylum system, developing specialized protection mechanisms for unaccompanied or separated children, in the creation of more efficient processes for the identification and integration of recognized refugees and asylum seekers in Mexico, as well as in the collaboration with human rights and humanitarian organizations, NGOs, and analysis and legal aid organizations, among others.

We are proud to be part of this collaboration effort, and reaffirm our commitment to our long-standing Pro bono and Corporate Social Responsibility programs, which are an essential part of our business model and our Firm values.
