“As a direct result of the research, introductions and other efforts by de La Garza Public Relations, Liddell Sapp Zivley Hill & LaBoon established ties with five targeted (Mexican) law firms. These new relationships have enabled Liddell Sapp to confidently refer its American clients to the firms for assistance on legal matters in Mexico, and to utilize them as a general resource not only for legal assistance on complex international commercial transactions and litigation, but also for factual investigations and making important government and commercial contacts in Mexico.
de La Garza’s efforts also resulted in the establishment of a network of potential referrals of such firms’ Mexican clients to Liddell Sapp for their legal needs in the United States. Liddell Sapp is now far better positioned to meet the increasingly international needs of its clients.”
