Arias, Meurinne y Rodríguez, S.C.

A ‘very competitive’ proposition, Arias, Meurinne y Rodríguez, S.C. has had plenty to celebrate on its tenth anniversary as recent market turbulence has seen it gain clients. The 18-strong boutique works across the sector (bar transfer pricing) but is probably best known for complex litigation; contentious matters constituting some 75% of the firm’s workload. ‘We regard him as very relevant’ say peers of ‘great litigator’ Pedro Arias, whose practice includes constitutional amparos, and also reaches into the administrative field. His fellow name partner, Humberto Rodríguez and Salvador González Escamilla bring further senior expertise to the contentious team; the pair are ‘formidable’. ‘Dedicated figure’ Luis Eduardo Meurinne has a broader practice that takes in consultancy, auditing and litigation, but he is most in demand for his expertise in tax efficiency matters, where he is increasingly the “go-to” figure. All three name partners are also involved in the niche specialization of anti-money laundering in relation to tax. Peers’ respect is mirrored by the approbation of clients who note ‘fine, hands on service’, ‘deep knowledge and clear thinking’, and ‘genuine 24/7 availability’. A ‘knowledgeable and solid’ second tier includes junior partner Pamela Orozco and senior associates Elizabeth Lastra and David Salguero (each have over 12 years’ experience); and Leah Sánchez, formerly at the tax prosecutors office, who is identified as ‘a brilliant prospect’.

  • 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?
