A Guide to Mexican Law for the U.S. Lawyer

Whether for business or for play, keep your clients' investments safe when they decide to enter the Mexican marketplace.

U.S. attorneys frequently represent clients that have companies and individuals that may be interested in doing business and/or acquiring property in Mexico. There are many business opportunities in Mexico that may include distribution of products, sale of U.S. products or services, and manufacturing operations. Also, there are many individuals interested in having vacation or investment property in Mexico. The Mexican legal system is very different than the U.S. system. Therefore, it is essential for the U.S. attorney to have a general understanding of the Mexican system and to know how to deal with its clients' Mexican opportunities and potential counterparties. This topic provides a general overview of the Mexican system and the issues that U.S. attorneys may encounter when representing clients that have decided to enter the Mexican market for business or for leisure.
