As the Mexican financial system has endured significant changes over the years, we have developed a reputation for sustained success in protecting the client’s interest in a myriad of financial services matters. Whether the client is a lender, a guarantor, or a borrower, our commercial law experts have the skill and experience to guide the client. We anticipate and resolve regulatory and tax issues. We devise innovative financing strategies that create business opportunities for the client. We also assist in streamlining the paperwork involved in routine matters, such as a letter of credit or other financing of equity or debt requirements.
We represent clients before all Mexican regulatory authorities, including the federal treasury secretariat (Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público or SHCP), the federal banking and securities commission (Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores or CNBV), the federal insurance and bonding commission (Comisión Nacional de Seguros y Fianzas or CNSF), as well as the Mexican Central Bank (Banco de México).
Having advised the Mexican government in negotiating the investment and financial services provisions under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), we now advise clients on cross-border investment and credit transactions that fall under NAFTA and other international agreements to which Mexico is a party. If a client wishes to form a Mexican affiliate of a foreign financial institution, for example, we assist in interpreting applicable international law and give the client practical advice on complying with Mexican regulations. If a client wishes to secure project financing, we assist in devising, negotiating, and documenting a structure that works under applicable law.
