Since its founding, our firm sowed and developed a culture focused on the importance of pro bono work and we have acted accordingly. Our firm signed an agreement for the promotion of pro bono work with the Fundación Barra Mexicana, A.C., with the objective of filing a quarterly report stating the number of pro bono hours worked during that period, as well as a detailed description of the work done and the clients to whom it was provided.
