OCAMPO 1890, S. C.
LAJA 123

Mexico > Insurance Tier 3

Ocampo 1890, S. C. houses an ‘exceptional practice in insurance and reinsurance mandates’, whose members earn additional praise for being ‘outstanding professionals’ who offer valued ‘legal support in both contentious and regulatory matters’. The group is well known for mainly representing reinsurers, and the defence of their interests in Mexico in litigations accounts for a sizable portion of the team’s caseload. Managing partner Aldo Ocampo steers the practice. Although particularly renowned for his contentious work, including claims, disputes, and amparos, Ocampo also handles non-litigious matters, such as the development of insurance products; advice on adjustment processes and risk management; and the drafting, review and registration of insurance and reinsurance contracts; as well as regulatory and corporate matters. This latter focus of the practice is reinforced by the expertise of experienced associate Diana Ángeles Ayala. Since  research concluded, Ángeles Ayala has left the firm.
