Analysis: Since opening in 2014, Vega, Guerrero & Asociados has established a national presence, working out of an impressive six locations across the country. The trio of offices in Aguascalientes (the firm’s headquarters), San Luis Potosí and Querétaro means the firm is especially well-placed to assist companies based in the area of El Bajío, Mexico’s main hub for the manufacturing industry. The firm has made a particularly well-considered name for itself in labour and employment, including reorganisations, restructuring, collective bargaining agreements, dismissals, employment compliance and training, and corporate work, including M&A, commercial transactions, dispute resolution, and advice for international companies doing business in Mexico. The team has worked with many big names including American tyre manufacture TBC, Indian car company Mahindra, hotel chain Hilton, and Club Necaxa, a football team that recently called upon Vega Guerrero to manage a handful of work permit visas within a narrow transfer window. The firm’s specialist expertise in labour and employment has also led to a glut of representations relating to workforces affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, Daimler and regular client Veolia have both used the firm in this capacity, as has steel parts provider Gestamp – which also sought the team’s assistance in reviewing internal purchase procedures in light of the pandemic.
