I nvestigations and Compliance

In an environment of ever-increasing regulatory oversight and scrutiny, where legal compliance has become a priority item for companies across all industries and sectors, our clients turn to us for advice in dealing with their legal and regulatory compliance needs arising in the context of antitrust, securities fraud, anticorruption, employee misconduct and white collar investigations.  Accordingly, our Firm has handled the Mexican law aspects of many of the most notable and high-stake’s multinational investigations over the last decade, working collaboratively with leading global and international law firms and consultants.

Our practice focuses on providing our clients with risk prevention, risk management and protection.  More specifically, our work in this area includes the following:

  • Advising on the design and implementation of compliance and training programs and policies, including policies designed to give effect to FCPA and the UK Bribery Act in Mexico.
  • Conducting compliance due diligence and investigations in the context of M&A and other transactions, and in respect to specific incidents and investigations.
  • Handling all local legal needs of clients in the context of legal and compliance investigations, including, as required, the representation of clients before the corresponding enforcement agencies.
  • Advising Boards and its members, as well as audit committees  and other governance bodies in the context of compliance related matters.
