Government and Regulatory Affairs

One of the greatest strengths of CARMAC is the legal advice it provides to public and private entities in regulatory and public policy matters. Our team has extensive experience representing government entities and private companies, national and foreign, in the development of their businesses in areas of high regulatory complexity and in constant change.

Several members of CARMAC have provided services to the government on a regular basis, so we know how public entities operate internally, which gives us a competitive advantage in this important sector. The legal strategies for the development of our clients' businesses or the compliance with their attributions (in the case of public entities) include both litigious and non-contentious solutions, to maximize the chances of success in the development of their activities.

CARMAC is a recognized leader in the development of laws and regulations, as well as in the representation of clients before decision makers in the political arena, at the federal, state, and municipal levels.
