Corporate Law

Our corporate practice includes services in incorporating and start-up of operations for all kinds of partnerships, and civil and commercial corporations, as well as the day to day management of corporate acts and documents required by applicable laws in Mexico, including holding shareholders’ meetings and sessions of any corporate bodies, preparing and updating corporate books, records, and corporate or partnership share certificates, among others.

Our lawyers are prepared to provide specialized legal assistance to our clients in order to determine the best way to increase share capital, develop merger or spin-off processes, as well as stock purchase agreements, shareholder agreements, protecting minority shareholders’ rights, et cetera.

We actively participate in shareholders’ meetings and board sessions, recommending the best way to conduct business at such meetings. Similarly, we participate in the process of formalizing resolutions and agreements before public notaries, streamlining such proceedings for the benefit of our clients.

In addition, we have ample experience in the restructuring and organization of family businesses, as well as the implementation of corporate government which allows for clear policies and procedures, in order for such businesses to survive and transcend through many generations.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We provide counsel on corporate legal matters such as the merger of business corporations, whether through take-overs or through the creation of a new corporation. We also provide legal advice on corporate legal matters and agreements with respect to the acquisition of corporations through share or asset purchase; all in accordance with corporate bylaws, the General Partnership and Corporations Law, and other applicable business legislation.

The foregoing is undertaken through a legal due diligence process in which all of the corporation’s departments participate, in order to understand the condition of, and any risk to, the corporations subject to a merger or acquisition.

Our team will accompany you in each of the stages, including the acquisition and sale of assets or liabilities of all kinds of companies, finding the most effective ways to adapt your businesses and continue to maximize your growth.

We also have expertise in undertaking mergers, spin-offs, restructuring, conversions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, always prioritizing the goals sought by our clients.


We offer specialized counsel to our domestic and foreign clients on a wide range of real- estate transactions within the residential, industrial, commercial and tourist sectors,  such as the sale, purchase and leasing of real-estate property, real-estate audits, development, construction, administration and operation of real-estate projects, as well as obtaining all permits and authorizations required for such projects

Our services include the purchase, sale, beneficial ownership, gratuitous loan, and leasing of properties, designing and structuring condominium or timeshare property systems, joint property systems, transforming communal property to private property, property management, development and implementation of real-estate trusts, property fusion and division, all through different contract forms and mechanisms which we have developed to protect our clients’ interests and requirements.

Due diligence and risk prevention

Due diligence is a tool in preventive legal counsel which allows clients to identify possible legal issues or unnecessary risks they could encounter, and allows for establishing measures to eliminate or  rework any issues, through an assessment of compliance with all obligations imposed upon the client by laws, regulations, agreements , et cetera, in order to undertake an evaluation thereof which will establish  priorities and solutions, reducing any possible impact.

A due diligence process is directed at understanding the possible impact of different aspects in the business and conducts a study of the risk factors which surround the company and its business. Likewise, the due diligence audit is an essential tool in mergers and acquisitions.

Our services in this area include analyzing our clients’ corporate, legal and administrative documents, preparing an opinion on the client’s legal status, which may include mapping findings and risks and, if applicable, designing a plan of action to ensure the company’s compliance and/or diminish any identified risks.


We offer advice on contracts and agreements from a comprehensive perspective, looking first to fully understand our client’s business, so that all contractual relations are established according to our client’s needs and within the appropriate legal framework.

Our team is experienced and knowledgeable in the design, analysis, review, negotiation and closing of all type of agreements related to civil law, commercial and administrative matters, and in  assisting the regular day to day operations of our clients in diverse sectors of industry and commerce, both within Mexico and abroad. 

Our services, customized for individuals as well as corporations, provide the legal certainty that upon entering into contracts, agreements or any type of legal transaction, future legal conflicts will be avoided, thus protecting our clients’ rights and assets.

Foreign investment

We counsel our foreign clients operating businesses in Mexico under different legal frameworks, as well as domestic clients who are looking for foreign investment to increase the scope of their business and their relations with foreign partners or investors.

We guide our clients in compliance matters regarding Mexican legislation, specifically in relation to  the Foreign Investment Law and its Regulations, performing all the obligations arising from their business activities. To this end, we provide assistance with all kinds of legal requirements, reports, notices, registration renewals, and any type of proceedings required by the National Foreign Investment Registry, conducting appropriate monitoring to ensure timely performance of the client’s obligations with respect to such authority.

Our legal assistance also includes the acquisition of real-estate property by foreigners inside or outside the Restricted Zone, “neutral investment”, and setting up trusts for the acquisitions of property or investment trusts.

Estate planning

Estate planning implies selecting appropriate actions, customized for each individual or company, allowing them to plan not only for foreseeable events, but also for unexpected contingencies that could affect their assets.

In striving to fully understand our clients’ business, we help them implement processes that facilitate the institutionalization and permanence of their company through time, always considering their financial position and family situation.

We helped them implement comprehensive strategies, using legal instruments such as family protocols, usufruct, probate laws, amendments to bylaws or trusts, all under the highest standards of quality and confidentiality anywhere in the industry.

Likewise, we conduct estate audits, focusing on analyzing the legality of any and all title to assets and assuming liabilities.  We restructure estates, prepare risk assessments, and design corporate and contractual strategies for asset succession and protection, fostering proper asset and estate transfer, to ensure the survival of companies through many generations.

Intellectual property

We value our clients’ capacity for innovation. Therefore, we strive for the fullest protection of their intellectual property through different mechanisms provided for in Mexican law, such as: trademarks, trade names, patents, utility models, industrial designs, trade secrets and artistic or literary works. We not only assist our clients in the registration of their intangible assets, but also in their protection and operation through licenses, technology transfer agreements and franchise agreements.

Our team has significant expertise in the protection of the plant varieties.

We offer specialized advice on obtaining and registering plant breeder certificates.

We successfully undertook the most emblematic litigation in Mexico regarding varieties of maize, which was representative due to its novelty and technical complexity.

We have worked with government agencies and private associations in the implementation of the UPOV 91 convention in national legislation. Likewise, we have designed public policies for the licensing of plant varieties generated by public research centers, connecting such centers with the private sector.

We have collaborated as consultants in international missions of the Mexican government related to the protection of plant varieties.

We are members of diverse technical groups of experts, established by the main authorities in the field, to determine the criteria for essentially derived varieties.

Civil, commercial and administrative litigation

We represent the interests of our clients in a wide range of legal disputes before local and federal authorities, in corporate matters as well as regarding real-estate ownership or title, termination of agreements or events of default, debt, and civil liability, among others.

We sponsor our clients in administrative proceedings and litigation in defense of their rights regarding acts of authority, including intellectual property matters.

In constant communication with our clients, we design legal strategies that adapt to their objectives and needs, and we implement such strategies with the highest professional and ethical standards, by putting together strong interdisciplinary teams.

Public policy

We respond to the specific requirements of public institutions designing solutions that favor the integration of the private and social sectors.

We create projects that promote national development through specialized regulatory and institutional analysis for the improvement of public administration and its regulatory framework.

We connect the legal perspective with a business vision and political intelligence to strengthen the sectoral goals of agencies and organizations.
