Amando Zepeda handles matters related to energy and infrastructure and also supports the firm's anti-corruption practice. He understands the importance of providing solutions for clients.

As a law student, Amando joined Barrera, Siqueiros, y Torres Landa (now Hogan Lovells) in 1993. He left after a year to focus on administrative law matters, becoming a public servant for several federal government entities. He rejoined the firm in 2017.

Amando served in decision-making positions at the Federal Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, the Federal Secretariat of Public Security, the Federal Police, the Federal Secretariat of Public Education, Aseguradora Hidalgo, and Nacional Financiera, overlooking and coordinating activities related to public procurement, public tenders, direct awards, and authorization of contracts. He also actively participated in the drafting of bills, regulations, bylaws, and regulatory issues.

He is also passionate about anti-money laundering. He wrote his graduate paper at Georgetown University Law Center on topics related to prevention of money laundering, focusing on the regulatory frameworks then applicable in Mexico and the U.S. He was living in Washington, D.C. during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and afterwards he was one of the first writers to address the "reverse money laundering" concept, as it became an issue in the aftermath of the attacks. As anti-corruption is closely related to the anti-money laundering fight, Amando joined the firm's anti-corruption practice. He understands the importance of counseling clients on anti-corruption issues, which is even more vital now that Mexico has implemented a new National Anti-Corruption system.

Amando also enjoys academia. He is a professor of law at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City and has taught at several law schools, sharing his insights with new generations of lawyers on administrative and anti-corruption topics. He was awarded Academic Excellence by the Universidad Iberoamericana for scoring the highest GPA of his graduating class.
