Business and Corporate Law
For over 15 years, the members of our Business Law Group have provided advice to US and Mexico in a full spectrum of domestic and cross-border business and corporate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, corporate governance, restructurings and almost every type of commercial transactions. We develop a deep understanding of our clients’ industries, become experts in their individual business, and become their trusted advisors and go to persons for most, if not all, legal matters. In addition, we provide “off-site general counsel” services to start-up, family mid-market businesses, which allows them to focus on running their business while we take care of their legal issues. Our services in this area include, among others:
Real Estate Law
Our Real Estate group provides a complete range of services in the real estate industry for our investor and developer clients, both domestic and international. We assist in property acquisition, development, financing, operation, debt restructure and disposition for all types of real property. In collaboration with our Business Law and Global Practice groups, we provide, among others the following services:
Our team, which includes attorneys licensed in the U.S. and Mexico, provides corporate advice and counsel to both Mexico and foreign-based clients, helping them determine how best structure their investments and do business in Mexico and in the U.S. We also provide clients with an in-depth understanding of relevant jurisdictional matters and conflict-of-laws authorities.
We serve Mexico and foreign-based clients, which range from individual entrepreneurs to family-owned businesses to mid-market companies to multinational corporations, in a variety of contexts, including cross-border business formation, international mergers and acquisitions, international distribution agreements, and other business relationships.
Having attorneys licensed in Mexico and the U.S., and being involved in international deals on a daily basis, gives us a unique advantage. We understand how things work in each country, have the ability to “see the big picture”, and know how to prevent the dramatic consequences that frequently result when working with attorneys who are not perfectly synchronized or lack the international experience.
Our Global Services include, among others:
Securities and Private Equity
Our Securities and Private Equity Group advises clients on the full range of public and private financings. Our experience encompasses all combinations of debt and equity instruments through the use of Mexican, U.S. and Canadian vehicles. We have been actively involved in the design and implementation of sophisticated legal structures for financing projects and investment vehicles in Mexico, Canada and the United States; have participated in the design and formation of many of the first Mexican private equity funds, including those involving investments from Mexican pension funds (AFOREs) through Development Capital Certificates (CKDs) and IPOs; and have participated in various working groups aimed at proposing legal and regulatory amendments, some of which have ultimately resulted in the existence of Mexican investment vehicles such as the Infrastructure and Real Estate Investment Trusts (FIBRAs), Private Equity Trusts (FICARs) and in the possibility of investments from AFOREs in private equity and development projects through CKDs and IPOs.
Our Securities and Private Equity services, which are rendered in collaboration with our Business Law and Global Practice groups, include:
