Von Wobeser y Sierra is proud to be a pro bono leader.

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. We have been fulfilling this obligation since January 1, 2007.

In addition, our firm participated on the committee that prepared the preliminary draft of the “Declaration of Pro Bono Work for the American Continent”, the purpose of which is precisely the promotion and development of this important work throughout Latin America.

Since 2012, Von Wobeser y Sierra has received the recognition “Leading Lights”, from the Vance Center and Latin Lawyer, as one of the most committed law firms in Latin America in pro bono work, which gives us great satisfaction and energizes us to redouble our efforts.

Regarding sexual diversity, in December 2019 and December 2020 the firm obtained the recognition of LGBT Best Place to Work, a certification of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation of Mexico.

As one of its symbolic acts, our firm has signed the promise of Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA), which was launched on May 18, 2016 in London to help women in arbitration.

We have actively supported women lawyers through Abogadas MX, a recently formed Mexican non-profit organization that focuses on the preparation of women lawyers in the business world.
