Puerto Rico

Spearheaded by McConnell Valdés LLC, and lead by María A. Domínguez, leader of the firm’s Government Enforcement & White Collar Defense Practice, the Puerto Rico Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association was launched in 2016. The group is comprised of a group of white collar practicing lawyers who have represented corporations and individuals facing criminal charges. It is the group's goal to expand its presence to include other women and legal consultants whose primary practice area is white collar criminal and government enforcement defense in Puerto Rico.


The Puerto Rico Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Members as defined:  

Law Firm Attorney Member: Women attorney private practitioners primarily practicing in the area of White Collar Defense and Investigations, defined as those who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters.   

Consultant Member: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms), specialize in the White Collar Defense and Investigations field, and who otherwise qualify under the WWCDA membership criteria and offer support services and referral opportunities to attorneys in the practice. 

Some WWCDA and chapter events may be limited to women attorney private practitioner (law firm attorney) members only.  

All Members must have their primary work address in the same location as our chapter.
