  • Sebastián Calderón is an associate at Von Wobeser y Sierra. He is part of the Investigations, Anti-corruption & Compliance practice.

    He specializes in economic criminal law, particularly in financial investigations, virtual assets and the FinTech Law. Sebastián's track record includes a tenure as Deputy Director of Investigations at Mexico’s Taxpayers Ombudsman (Procuraduría Fiscal de la Federación, PFF), where his strategic litigation of major financial criminal cases was critical. His technical acumen in tax and financial matters led to Mexico's representation in international forums and the crafting of legislative policies at the Congress of the Union. As an independent attorney, Sebastián provided strategic legal advisories on economic criminal matters and virtual asset regulations.

    Sebastián's experience has been pivotal in the development of sophisticated investigative strategies and policies, significantly influencing international legal practices through his work with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). He was involved with several OECD initiatives, including Tax Inspectors Without Borders, the Working Group on Tax Crime and Other Crimes (WGTCC), and the FATF’s Crypto Assets Task Force.
