Our Practice

The Corporate practice group provides comprehensive legal and business solutions to domestic and foreign companies, public and private, with operations in Mexico, in relation with all the legal corporate related matters.

Our full-service capabilities through our wide-range of practice areas enable us to provide services encompassing all legal aspects of a corporate nature, from startups and corporate governance matters to restructurings. Several of our partners serve as members in the board of directors of their clients.

We have participated in all types and sizes of local and cross-border transactions involving corporate matters, M&A and private equity, including sales or acquisitions of equity interests, minority stakes and assets, financed purchases, capitalizations, corporate restructurings, spin-offs, split-offs, public tender offers for acquisitions, planning and implementation of partnerships, joint ventures, among others.

The practice has developed expertise in:

  • Incorporation of companies and compliance of their corporate obligations on a day-today basis.
  • Advice and representation of foreign companies and investors regarding the start-up and operation of their business in Mexico, identifying the most suitable legal vehicles depending on the type of activity or investment, including the incorporation or registration of subsidiaries, affiliates, branches or representation offices necessary to hold or manage any investments or to conduct commercial activities within Mexico.
  • Corporate governance, as to the way a company should be controlled, considering the stakeholders’ interests and business objectives.
  • Design and implementation of corporate strategies including the incorporation of SPVs, joint ventures and other forms of associations, appropriate for the development of transactions and/or the implementation of projects of any nature.
  • Resolution of shareholders’ disputes.
  • Negotiation, drafting and execution of all types of contracts and agreements, including but not limited to those between shareholders’ or partners’, purchase and sale agreements, merger agreements and of consortiums and joint ventures, as well as such related with venture capital and private equity investments.


One of the main aspects of our corporate practice is the negotiation and implementation of joint ventures and strategic alliances. As a result of either foreign investment, statutory requirements or business strategies adopted by our clients, we have gained considerable experience in structuring joint ventures and alliances for our clients. We have counseled domestic and foreign corporations, private equity firms and investment funds, among others, seeking to do business in Mexico and Latin America through a joint venture or a strategic alliance. Likewise, we have been selected by a large number of joint venture companies to act as their general counsel independent from the shareholders or partners, for their corporate matters, day-to-day legal operations, or specific transactions which require a representation of the joint venture as a whole
