Adriana has collaborated with Mijares Angoitia Cortés y Fuentes SC since 1998.

Currently, Adriana is part of the firm’s ESG practice and has advised various clients for several years on corporate governance structures. The clients’ board of directors plays a key role, particularly in adopting policies to address and mitigate ESG risks, which encompass a wide range of issues. These issues can include employee relations, human rights, climate change and supply chain management within a business society.

As part of her ESG specialisation, Adriana has focused on designing tools for the development and implementation of regulatory and compliance management systems. These tools are essential in our clients’ ESG strategies, helping to mitigate corporate liability for control failures, oversight and good governance.

In 2008, Adriana established and led the corporate services area of the firm until June 2022. The corporate services area focuses on providing daily corporate services related to the corporate maintenance of commercial and civil entities, both Mexican and foreign. The client base includes specialised companies in entertainment, telecommunications, energy and the financial system, among others.

Adriana also specialises in anti-money laundering (AML) and supervises and advises various clients in the financial and non-financial sectors to ensure compliance with the obligations imposed by Mexican legislation in this area. Adriana obtained the certification in AML/CFT issued by the National Banking and Securities Commission in December 2019.
