Mexico City, May 2021.


As a response to its clients´ needs, the firm decided to strengthen its already strong Labour, Employment and Social Security practice group. As a result, David Eugenio Puente Tostado joined the firm as partner in the firm’s office in the city of Monterrey.

David has more than twenty years of experience advising domestic and foreign clients on labour, immigration, and social security matters deriving from investments, set up, day-to-day operations and activities, mergers and acquisitions and other corporate restructurings. He has extensive experience in collective negotiations in general but specifically in the electricity and automotive industries, individual and collective litigation, and that involving credits issued by social security institutions. Up until 2020, David was the president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico (CANCHAM), Monterrey Chapter.

He has been recognized by the most important international legal rankings such as Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500, Who’s Who Legal, among others.

Clients are keen to praise Monterrey-based partner David Eugenio Puente Tostado, enthusing: «He is very knowledgeable, professional and open to finding new solutions to new problems. He understands that every client is different and has their own requirements.» He remains highly active in collective bargaining, recently handling the negotiation of a collective agreement on behalf of Sally Beauty Supply (Chambers and Partners 2021).

“I was drawn to Basham because it is the future of BigLaw. The Firm allows partners flexibility and control over their practice, while still providing clients high-quality legal work for a great value.” – remarked David Puente about his move.

Basham cherish its leadership in relation to associations and chambers of commerce both in Mexico and internationally. That is why with this addition, we seek to strengthen our activity within these entities, specifically in Monterrey and in the northern portion of the country.

With this new addition, the Labour, Employment and Social Security practice group, led by Jorge De Presno, underlines Basham’s leadership in the market and its investment in those groups that are increasingly important to our clients, such as labour, employment, and social security.

These also reflect our commitment to ensure that the diversity of our partnership develops to reflect the rich pool of talent across our firm today in every office and practice group.
