Biography

Hugo Lopez Coll has developed a broad practice representing domestic and international clients on mergers and acquisitions, private equity, regulatory and compliance matters, internal investigations, real estate, shareholders’ disputes and gaming issues.

Hugo advises Mexican and regional entities and their holding companies, both in regulated and non-regulated industries, on regulatory and compliance matters with several Mexican laws, and regularly assists clients with issues arising under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the OECD Convention and the UN Convention Against Corruption.
