Returning for the fourth time to the Mexican in-house legal market, the GC Powerlist Mexico Teams 2019 highlights the top in-house legal teams in what is a dynamic and challenging market. The legal market has been affected by the region’s political and social upheaval as well as by major natural disasters making the past twelve months a challenging year. The election of President López Obrador, a planned economic stimulus in the oil industry, as well as the ongoing effort to curb the violence and corruption of gang-affected states has made financial and commercial planning difficult. However, the economic picture is mixed with retail growth increasing in 2018 and consumer confidence rising according to the National Association of Supermarkets and Department Stores (ANTAD). The market has also continued to be impacted by the strained trade relationship between Mexico and the US and the implications of the NAFTA renegotiation.

This year we again have the pleasure of highlighting the top 100 in-house legal teams in Mexico. Each team is an outstanding example of innovation, technical ability, management and showcasing the most important and pioneering work in the industry. The teams included demonstrate the continuing development and opportunity that the in-house legal sector provides, particularly to women, with teams included providing examples of exemplary female legal leadership. Each has made the most of the country’s turbulence to carve out an exemplary in-house legal practice.

Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enriquez is once again delighted to sponsor the GC Powerlist Mexico. We have had the privilege of doing so since its inaugural edition, and as ever we look forward to hosting a gathering of Mexico’s most talented, innovative and influential GC teams in the country. To all of those nominated and receiving a specific distinction or award as part of this 2019 Edition, our most sincere congratulations for a job well-done.

Yet again we meet at a time of great challenge and opportunity for Mexico, and we are convinced that like never before in the last thirty years or so, the legal profession must be a thoughtful and forefront participant in shaping and guaranteeing our country’s rule of law. In doing so, lawyers across all ranks, practices and regions must be well coordinated and united.

All of us at Creel look forward to playing an active role fostering substantive dialogue on the key legal challenges confronting our Country and our clients, and teaming up with you in promoting initiatives addressing those challenges in furtherance of a better and more just society. Once again congratulations to all of you.
