Tax

Within: Tax

With ‘a price/quality relation that is one of the best you’ll find’, Nader, Hayaux y Goebel, SC is ‘a great firm on which to rely for novel operations and innovative structures’. The firm established its practice back in 2015 with the hire of Chevez-trained Adalberto Valadez, whom clients laud for his ‘profound knowledge of tax matters’, ‘ability to find simple solutions’ and ‘great disposition and availability as needed’. While the mid-term goal is full stand-alone capability, the practice is currently primarily focused on advisory and planning matters (it does not undertake litigation or transfer pricing) in relation to corporate transactional and financial matters, particularly the origination of unique trust structures in relation to instruments such as CKDs, ETFs and CerPIs, so as to facilitate investment. The firm has also hired a number of tax-specialised associates (notably, Paola Plaza) and a tax-dedicated accountant, Mónica Pérez, adding further capacity to the practice. Clients speak of ‘a very positive group’, that demonstrates ‘great willingness and creativity when it comes to resolving the tax issues put before them’. Recent mandates include acting as tax counsel to both DILA Capital and Banyan Tree on the tax efficient structuring of their respective private equity funds (these will subsequently be incorporated as trusts capable of accepting investment from regulated entities such as insurance companies or State-sponsored funds such as INADEM); Desarrollos Delta on the structuring and placement of MXN$800m of CKDs; EMX Capital on the most suitable structure for its acquisition of Consorcio Industrial Valsa; and Barclays Capital Casa de Bolsa on MIRA’s CerPI issuance, so as to ensure optimum tax treatment in a transactions involving an instrument that does not have an established tax regime under Mexican law. Practice clients include Artha Capital, BlackRock and General Electric.

Legal Developments in Mexico

Legal Developments and updates from the leading lawyers in each jurisdiction. To contribute, send an email request to
  • 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.
  • ADVERTISING IN MEXICO: COMMENTS UNDER AN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW PERSPECTIVE

    Advertising in Mexico is governed by multiple bodies of law including for at least seven Federal Laws, five Regulations also of Federal application, a number of the so-called Mexican Official Standards (NOM's) and certain other laws and regulations applicable into specific States within the Republic of Mexico. All of them are focusing to establish the form and manners for producing and communicating advertising of products and services in Mexico.
  • MEXICAN CUSTOMS. UPDATE ON THE ENFORCEMENT OF TRADEMARK RIGHTS

    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

    The evolution in the protection and enforcement of IP rights has also reached the Mexican practice. The traditional ways of defending a registered trademark on a non use contentious procedure have developed.
