Fernando Yllanes Ramos
Mexico city, 1908-1999
Fernando Yllanes Ramos is not only the founder of the firm but a symbol of ethics and an example of constant and honest work, in addition to his impeccable trajectory, both personal and professional. Fernando obtained his law degree from the Escuela Libre de Derecho in Mexico City. Upon his graduation, he partnered with his colleague and friend Alfonso Noriega Cantú, to found the law firm Bufete Yllanes y Noriega. Nevertheless, soon after they parted in different ways, and Fernando founded the legacy that has remained standing to this day: Yllanes Ramos.
He was always passionate about labor and employment law, standing out as one of the most remarkable attorneys in Mexico in this area. He was also proud to teach his favorite subject in his alma mater for many years.
Mr. Yllanes Ramos was a member of the Board of Directors of the International Labor Organization (ILO) from 1945 to 1987, without interruption. In 1944, he participated in the Philadelphia meeting and conventions during WWII. He was a Member of the ILO’s Governing Body, where he was elected twice as Vice-President and once as an Employers’ Delegate. Due to his age (within international customs and practices that set age limits for civil servants), upon reaching the age of eighty, but in full capacity, he withdrew from the ILO’s Council and was replaced by another prominent Mexican lawyer, Mr. Jorge de Regil, thus continuing the tradition of representing Mexico in the ILO and the International Organization of Employers.
Given his legal training and his passion for Labor Law, he filled his life with work and activity, for which, apart from practicing in the area, he participated in the following important international events, such as:
Founder and member of the National Association of Distributors of Household Appliances, A.C. (ANDAD)
Member of the National Association of Business Lawyers, A.C. (ANADE)
