Dispute Resolution: Litigation in Mexico
TIER 4 FIRMS
Newcomer to the ranking, Bello, Gallardo, Bonequi y García, S.C. fields a ‘team of highly qualified professionals who master the timing and development of the case very well’ and who have a particular focus on civil, commercial and constitutional litigation.
The ‘brilliant’ Juan Bonequi heads the 11-strong department; he has over 20 years’ complex-litigation experience -primarily civil, commercial, financial, constitutional (and amparo) law, as well as bankruptcy proceedings. The firm’s expertise in areas such as financial regulations, compliance and telecommunications ensure it has a flow of complex matters along with more typical commercial disputes; a recent case in point saw the team represent Deutsche Bank Trustee in judicial proceedings in connection to its right to resign as trustee on the grounds of the parties (settlors and beneficiaries) failure to provide it with the information required to comply with Mexican legal anti-money-laundering requirements.
Elia Sosa (civil and commercial litigation), Héctor Yañez (civil liability cases, punitive damages and administrative matters), and 2018-arrival Cinthya González (constitutional litigation and amparos), constitute a strong, specialised second tier of senior associates.
