Every single member of Lex Legal Mexico’s teammust have studied at least one relevant course or programme in their area of expertise, as well as another in business.

He is highly passionate about the creation of new companies, new technologies, world-changing products and services, and legitimate value creation. He has been acknowledged as one of the most relevant corporate lawyers in Mexico. Lex Legal Mexico’s culture incorporates technology such as AI and different administration platforms. This may seem like a normal thing for any law firm, however, a recent study showed that 63% of lawyers in Latam fail to use some sort of legal software, and 82% said they do not believe in AI applied to legal matters. Lex Legal Mexico simply believes the opposite. Having the opportunity to design the structure of a project, business or transaction, as well as outlining the terms and conditions of what several parties agree to is like building the highway by which the business or transaction will transit. When everything goes smoothly it is because the firm’s lawyers did a great job, and when things go wrong, but negotiations and litigations turn in its favour, it’s because its lawyers managed to anticipate the worst scenarios and establish the conditions so that its clients’ interests are always protected. Indeed, Lex Legal Mexico is a highly successful law firm, but it’s only just getting started. It is currently working on an international expansion plan which includes the opening of its first office in the United States. Being a law firm in Mexico gives it a strategical geographic position for companies that intend to do business in or with the USA, and that is why around 40% of its clients are companies all around Latam, because basically it is the most convenient door to enter the greatest and biggest market in the Western world. It is planned that Lex Legal International will be ready by 2023.
