Sponsor Statement

Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enriquez

For a second consecutive year Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enriquez is honored to sponsor the GC Powerlist. The 2016 edition of the GC Powerlist was successful not only in assembling the leading and most innovative general counsel in Mexico, but served as a useful platform to network and exchange experiences among peers, colleagues and other attendees.

We meet again at a time of great challenges and changes globally. Like no other chapter in the last 20 years, the political and economic World Order seems to be at a point of inflection. Globalization and the neo-liberal economic model is being questioned, and the rhetoric of protectionism and isolationism seems to be making strides once again.

The jury is out on whether the prevailing economic conditions have resulted in the current political climate, or whether the current polarization in the political arena is the result of the economic conditions, which has been marked by anemic growth and mounting wealth disparity internationally and within individual countries. Are politics dragging the economy, or is the economy the victim of politics? Regardless of the answer, the result is great uncertainty. For a variety of reasons, including its preeminent position as a great supplier of the global supply chain, Mexico is very much front and center of the debate.

At this time of great uncertainty for our country, the legal profession in Mexico must play a critical and active role. A role centered on providing the business community with poised, sage and thorough advice, to help to mitigate the uncertainty affecting the market. In doing so, as lawyers we must again acknowledge that one of the greatest challenges confronting Mexico is the rule of law, and that no other profession has a bigger role to play in curing the problem.

With this backdrop, once again we invite all of the participants in the GC Powerlist Mexico Teams 2017, to use this venue as a forum to discuss how we can all work together to eradicate corruption, and foster a more predictable and transparent justice system. Unquestionably Mexico’s future will be even brighter if we succeed in this endeavor.
