L&E Global Expands North American Presence

Prominent Mexican Firm – Natividad Abogados – Joins Alliance

Brussels (October 17, 2011) – Natividad Abogados, the leading workplace law firm in Mexico, has joined forces with L&E Global, the international integrated alliance providing counsel to employers on employment, labor, workplace privacy, employee benefits and immigration law.

Natividad will join ten leading law firms from Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific region that have formed an alliance to provide attentive, efficient, and cost-effective legal counsel to clients operating in what has increasingly become a multi-jurisdictional legal arena. Launched in January 2011 with six members, L&E Global expanded quickly to become the premier integrated alliance of employment and labor “boutique” law firms. L&E Global is now comprised of member firms from Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, and the United States.

“Natividad Abogados will greatly expand our presence in North America,” said Stephan C. Swinkels, the Executive Director of L&E Global. “Together with our outstanding member firms in the U.S. and Canada, L&E Global is now strategically situated to provide seamless service to clients with operations on the North American continent. And, they will provide a gateway to expansion into Latin and South America.” Tomas Natividad, Sr. added, “We are very excited to expand our horizons further into North America, Europe and the Southern Hemisphere. We are honored to join the ranks of this distinguished group of practitioners.”

With more than 100 employees, Natividad Abogados is the largest and most prominent management-side labor and employment firm in Mexico. They represent a wide spectrum of employers and have extensive relationships with government ministries and union leadership throughout the country.
