Areas of practice

Labor, Employment and Corporate Compensation 

We provide legal advice and full representation encompassing every aspect of labor, employment, and benefits laws.

In our practice we blend traditional labor and employment law with cutting edge strategy consulting and litigation from both the collective and individual standpoint.

As a solution centered firm, our practice team interacts with other practice areas of the firm, providing labor and employment advice in corporate transactions, carrying out labor due diligences, identifying existing or potential labor and employment contingencies.

Likewise, we help clients with the proper documentation of employment relationships, termination strategies, internal compliance procedures (e.g., drafting, implementation and execution of solid in-house policies), expat hiring strategies, high level executive compensation plans, as well as compliance with Mexican authorities including the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare with respect to employment and safety aspects through inspections and audit procedures, and from other non-governmental organizations.

Such services include the advice and drafting of work contracts for directors or high-level employees including covenants of non-competition, confidentiality and golden parachutes; the structuring and implementation of profit sharing plans, stock options purchase plans and other stock-related benefit agreements for employees; the assistance in the drafting, negotiation and execution of collective bargaining agreements with labor unions, and the drafting of legal opinions regarding labor and employment matters.

We have experience representing clients in individual and collective actions, before local and federal labor courts in Mexico, as well as before administrative authorities and in their defense before judicial or constitutional instances.

Also, our labor and employment practice group has deep knowledge in data privacy and protection matters, which allow us to deliver integrate such component to labor and employment advice, including contracts, data management and in-house policies.
