Banking and Finance

Our Firm represents Mexican, international and multilateral banks, as well as other financial intermediaries in secured and unsecured, bilateral and syndicated lending transactions of different levels of complexity involving Mexican obligors or assets. Our steady presence in the market has allowed us to participate in all phases of the credit cycle, including origination in bull markets as well as restructuring in the context of regional or global crises.

We have advised the majority of foreign financial institutions that have established subsidiaries in Mexico, in their authorization processes.

Our team also advises domestic and foreign banks in regulatory matters and treasury transactions, as well as industry organizations such as ISDA and the Mexican Banking Association in their derivatives transactions in Mexico.
