U.S.- Mexico Law

As the economic relationship between the United States and Mexico has continued to grow and mature, these two countries' economies have become increasingly integrated. Nowhere is this more evident than in the number of companies operating on both sides of the border and in the increased economic cooperation between companies and entrepreneurs of both countries. This cooperation may take many forms, from simply investing in previously existing companies, to forming new joint ventures, to merging with or acquiring a target company on the other side of the border.


Doing Business in Mexico, although it can be highly profitable if managed properly, is usually complex. While many of the economic and legal fundamentals inherent in legal transactions remain the same whether the transaction is domestic or international in nature, cross-border legal matters between Mexico and the United States can bring about differences in the substantive law of the other jurisdiction, as well as in its procedure, its language, its culture and the legal environment in which its attorneys practice.
