Luis Guillermo Cruz Rico, JD, FLC, LL.M.

Mexican-Canadian Lawyer

I am a lawyer in good standing in Ontario and Mexico, consultant and entrepreneur. In 2007, I founded Cruz Herrera Ltd. and since 2014 I am principal at MC Law Firm, first boutique firm devoted in both Mexican and Canadian law based in Toronto and Mexico City.

I was born and raised in Mexico City and in 2005 I moved to Toronto.I was very fortunate to work at Mr. Edward L. Greenspan’s office under his direct supervision in a case related to a double murder in Mexico. Thanks to Mr. Greenspan’s help, in 2007, I obtained a permit as foreign legal consultant for Mexico and have been assisting Canadians with legal needs in Mexico, including criminal defence and commercial law since that time. Meanwhile, I applied to the National Committee on Accreditation to get my legal credentials in Canada and after demonstrating proficiency in fourteen subjects and completing the licensing process, I was called to the bar in Ontario in 2014.

The last 23 years have been an exciting and rewarding journey. I have had the chance to participate in high profile cases and work with some of the brightest legal minds in Mexico and Canada; I have been exposed to two different legal traditions and I have argued cases before Mexican and Canadian courts but most importantly, I have raised a family and enjoyed the best of two worlds.
