Mayer Brown Mexico, S.C.

Mayer Brown Mexico, S.C. opened its doors in late 2015 under the direction of former ExxonMobil general counsel Francisco Mendez: a hydrocarbons lawyer with vast experience in both upstream and downstream matters who was also instrumental in the establishment of the Mexican Hydrocarbons Association. Since then it has hired Ariel Ramos, formerly of Haynes and Boone, L.L.P., who is a finance specialist with a focus on energy and projects; and, at associate level, Sarah Espinoza Ulloa, Jessica Solis Carrillo, Lilia Alonzo and Victor M. Vázquez. Ramos and Chicago-based Débora de Hoyos led advice to Goldman Sachs on $80m financing extended to CYDSA for the development of saline caves into an LPG storage facility; and the team is also working on a number of Pemex-related mandates. The group can also call on Houston-based Jose L Valera, who co-heads the firm’s oil and gas practice.

  • Notorious Marks

    Notorious marks or the declaration thereof, has always been an issue widely discussed in Mexico by the IP legal community. This is so because provisions of the Paris Convention dealing with this topic have for a long time been uses as an effort to cancel or nullify trademarks registered by Mexican authorities without really making an extensive evaluation of proposed denominations and without examining in depth if such marks may be potentially affecting rights acquired by third parties elsewhere. So, a specific regulation and legal frame that at least tries to resolve this issue is always a good start in the right direction.
  • FRANCHISING TRENDS IN MEXICO: A NEW VALUE

    By Ignacio Dominguez Torrado Uhthoff, Gomez Vega & Uhthoff, S.C. Why a new value? Is Mexico avoiding the economic fallout that the world may be facing? In Mexico franchises are worth more? Is Mexico not a country that the global economic standstill is or will affect? The answer is, not really. Are Franchises in Mexico currently experiencing a boom? Perhaps. Are Franchises becoming an important aspect in Mexican economy? Certainly.

    It has been well publicized in the Mexican media over the last few months that the General Customs Administration (AGA) and the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) are planning to launch a customs trademark registry, as a short-term solution to increase protection for trademark owners against the import of infringing and counterfeit products.
  • DEMONSTRATING USE OF TRADEMARKS UNDER MEXICAN LAW AND PRACTICE
