Constitutional Amparo & Administrative Proceedings

Von Wobeser y Sierra, S.C. counts with a solid team in this practice area. Due to the activities and needs of our clients, the Firm has developed knowledge and experience in the special laws that govern specific industries such as the decrees that regulate the automotive industry in relation to the manufacture of auto parts, the General Health Law which governs the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry, the Federal Consumer Protection Law and the Procurement and Public Works Law, to mention a few.

As a result of the above, the Firm provides counsel to its clients on all types of administrative proceedings, including those involving contracting with the Government and its agencies and companies. In particular, we protect the rights of our clients before acts of authorities that may illegally affect their interests, for which we have specialized lawyers to challenge, through appeals, court proceedings and other necessary actions, such illegal acts. In this respect, we have had great success in challenging, through the amparo proceeding (which is a highly sophisticated constitutional appeal), administrative laws that unduly restrict the activities of our clients.

Considering the breadth and increasing complexity of administrative law, we have a team of lawyers that study and keep our clients informed of the numerous official regulatory standards (NOMs) issued by the Mexican authorities, in order to ensure that the companies are in compliance with them or to challenge them when it seems appropriate.

We have a team of expert litigators in amparo proceedings and human rights. For more than 20 years we have succesfully challenged the contitutionality of laws in tax, health, antitrust and other matters. We have also obtained favorable rulings against a broad scope of governmental acts and decisions which at some point affected the operation or assets of our clients.
