Practice Areas

Our environmental practice is highly experienced and recognized; we represent some of the largest foreign owned and domestic corporations in Mexico, as well as numerous mid-size and privately held companies. We have the expertise and capacity to represent Clients in all types of environmental matters. Frequently, we are requested to provide advice on regulatory support, and on preventive and governmental audits.

Our expertise in Environmental Law is widely recognized; we effectively represent Clients before numerous municipal, state and federal environmental regulatory agencies. Although our litigation experience is extensive and has been very successful, we aim to provide our Clients with a proactive approach to prevent them from environmental contingencies. Our regulatory work is robust and includes permitting, compliance and transactional matters. We constantly represent Clients buying, selling and developing environmentally challenged properties throughout Mexico.

Our preventive environmental approach includes:

(i) Assessment of the environmental status of companies and real estate including remediation actions and strategies to reach full compliance;

(ii) Design and implementation of strategies, management and permit obtainment and/or environmental authorization, for the various activities and operations of a company or a particular property; and

(iii) Structure, governmental negotiation and monitoring of proposals related to the remediation of contaminated premises.
