Legal Representation

Criminal defence
We provide legal defense in criminal and professional matters, ensuring a fair trial rights protection in Mexico’s Criminal Courts.

Civil litigation
We will assist in the creation, ratification and approval of civil contracts, property management and guidance in matters related to family and estate planning.

Setting up Mexican corporation
We apply our vast experience in the Mexican business environment to provide you with all the legal strategies to successfully set up a corporation in Mexico, purchase, franchise, etc.

Amparo proceeding
Amparo is an extraordinary constitutional appeal, which may be filed in federal court, by Mexicans and by foreigners whose rights might be compromised by an authority in Mexico. We prevent you to be unfairly retained and allow you to undergo your defense before the authority undermines your rights.

Real Estate &Timeshare Law

One of the advantages of being represented by a Dually qualified law firm.

Timeshare / Scam
We help everyday people stand up to Mexican real estate fraud. We know their playbook: hidden fees, misleading clauses, and broken communication.

Family & Estate Law

Estate & Probate proceedings
We represent clients in probate and trust proceedings which involve the laws of both Mexico and Canada.

Estate litigation
There are certain differences between Canada and Mexico to keep in mind, as Mexico does not have survivor rights and the surviving spouse might not automatically inherit a property, we can support you in having a will to be valid in both countries.

Prenuptial Agreements
We always cheer for “They lived happily ever after”, but just in case things don’t go as expected, we also can support so the happiness prevails in any case.

Divorce Proceedings
When all options have been explored and there is no other rout to follow, you can trust in a firm that will help you go through the process with the best possible outcome for you.

When visiting Mexico on a business trip, it is important to define if a work permit is required based on the nature of the visit.
