In addition to its ongoing corporate practice, the firm has participated, as advisor to the Mexican Government, in the drafting of federal legislation, including the current Mining Law, and in the privatization of State owned enterprises.
Its partners and associates are all bilingual English-Spanish, and some have, in addition to their Mexican law degree, advanced degrees from top Mexican and US universities, have work experience at major U.S. and Canadian law firms, and are admitted to the New York Bar.

The firm strives to take advantage of its size by providing personalized service, and highly values the development of long term relationships with clients based on professional competence, quality service and loyalty.
