With extensive experience in the market, Mexican boutique firm OCAMPO 1890, S. C. has established a solid reputation for insurance matters. Originally founded as a litigation-oriented firm, an area in which it continues to exhibit significant strength, the firm has over the years moved into regulatory and corporate matters related to insurance companies. Managing partner Aldo José Ocampo heads the five-strong team, which is largely focused on contentious matters, including claims, disputes, coverage determination, policy analysis and reinsurance contracts. For support on the non-contentious side of the practice, Ocampo relies on experienced associate Diana Ángeles, who handles mandates such as the development of insurance products, risk management, and the draft, review and registration of insurance and reinsurance contracts, as well as regulatory and corporate matters.
