About Our Clients

OUR CLIENTS

COMMITMENT
For more than fifty years SANTAMARINA Y STETA has maintained the highest standards in its services. Our commitment is based on four fundamental principles:

REPRESENTATION (EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY)
We believe in our clients. We represent their interests with the knowledge and insight that only a native Mexican firm can bring to bear.

EFFICENT SERVICES
We are sensitive to the ever-increasing concerns of our clients to minimize the cost of legal services. We define cost-efficiency as working as a team with each client to allocate our professional resources in a manner that minimizes the cost without reducing quality. We expect fair compensation for our efforts, but we do not condition our commitment to a matter on the income it may yield to the firm.

CLIENT RELATIONS
Working closely with our clients, we strive to understand their business, to anticipate their needs, to analyze relevant aspects of the Mexican business, political and legal environment and to render our services in a manner that consistently advances our clients interests. We keep our clients up-to-date about Mexican developments affecting their projects, but also of other aspects that may be of relevance to their business operations.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
We maintain close relationships with governmental offices as well as professional and business organizations in Mexico and abroad. Furthermore, we believe that practicing law means serving not only our clients, but also our community at large. It has been our privilege to participate with legislators, government agencies and private groups in drafting laws and regulations, and in exploring solutions to
current legal issues. Our lawyers serve on boards of directors of many companies and non-profit organizations. We also conduct a substantial amount of pro bono work for charitable and civic groups. As teachers, as authors and as public speakers, our lawyers work to improve the legal profession in Mexico and to help those abroad understand the Mexican legal system and culture.
