The Hispanic Business Group 

The Hispanic community, both inside and outside the United States, is an increasingly dynamic and significant player on the global business stage, spanning a wide range of industries. At Epstein Becker Green, our awareness of issues affecting the Hispanic workplace enhances our relationships with clients and colleagues. In 1998, the firm established the Hispanic Business Group, which includes EBG attorneys who focus on the complex business and legal needs of the growing Hispanic population in the United States. Our mission is to meet the wide range of legal and business concerns that affect the Hispanic business community—both in the United States and globally. Our clients include, among others, Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States, Latin American subsidiaries of U.S. corporations, subsidiaries of Spanish and Latin American companies with U.S. business interests, and businesses with significant Hispanic employee populations.

We provide comprehensive legal services to our Hispanic business clients on matters concerning labor and employment, immigration, health care (including Hispanic health care-related facilities and hospitals), insurance, intellectual property, and corporate law issues as well as litigation and arbitration. The firm also works closely with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Mexico Chamber of Commerce to resolve concerns involving migrant workers from Mexico in the United States and related labor and employment policies.

Our Work in the Hispanic Community

Epstein Becker Green attorneys are active in civic and cultural groups representing the Hispanic community—from participating on local school boards to organizing charitable events for the benefit of Hispanic cultural centers. Also, for years, Hispanic Business Group member Dean Singewald has worked to promote diversity in the legal profession with leaders of the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association. Additionally, Epstein Becker Green is an active member of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (and Hispanic Business Group members regularly participate in the Chamber’s annual conference) and a member of the Advisory Board of the Northeast Chapter of the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce.
