Mexico City-based firm Von Wobeser & Sierra SC has announced that Diego Sierra is the firm’s newest partner. Sierra's promotion brings the firm's partnership to 12. He will take the reins of the firm’s anticorruption and compliance practice, advising global and local clients on compliance with Mexican anti-corruption rules as well as extra-territorial statutes such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The promotion does not mean Sierra will cease to be active in the firm's commercial litigation and international arbitration practice.

Global Arbitration Review 100 (GAR 100) - Review & Analysis of Von Wobeser y Sierra S.C., One of the Top firms in the World
February, 2014
Latin Lawyer 250, singles out Von Wobeser y Sierra's arbitration practice as one of the best options in Mexico.

The Mexican firm's expert evidence helped KBR enforce an eye-popping US$465 million award against Pemex in the US courts.

GAR's sister guide to law firms in Latin America, Latin Lawyer 250, singles out Von Wobeser y Sierra's arbitration practice as one of the best options in Mexico - thanks, largely, it says, to the impressive international profile of the firm's founder, Claus von Wobeser. It's hard to disagree. On top of multiple bar association roles, von Wobeser is a vice president of the ICC Court and regularly sits as arbitrator in commercial and investor-state disputes. He has lately been on ICSID panels hearing claims against Spain, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Peru, Poland and Uzbekistan. In addition, he is sitting alone in a rare ICSID conciliation filed by Equatorial Guinea against CMS Energy Corporation. Adrián Magallanes, who was recently promoted to partner is considered a rising star. Another recruit, associate Victor Ruiz, used to work at the ICC Court.
