Rizo, Erreguerena y Garza-Cantú, S.C.

Being ‘technically very strongRizo, Erreguerena y Garza-Cantú, S.C. is a small, six-strong boutique, originally founded in 2013. All three name partners, Juan Carlos Rizo, Carlos Garza and Jose Miguel Erreguerena, (who arrived from OSE in early 2016), have ‘great reputations’ and over 20 years’ practice experience. The firm’s workload is split more or less 50/50 between consultancy and contentious matters, although the make-up of the contentious portion has shifted radically towards PRODECON negotiated settlements at the expense of litigation. Overall the firm finds itself receiving far fewer day-to-day and compliance related matters, and far more sophisticated and complex mandates, along with a steady flow of tax-related restructuring work and, increasingly, consultations regarding tax efficiency. Founding partners Rizo and Garza both spent over ten years at Mexico’s tax authority, SAT, the former undertaking contentious matters (litigation and amparos), while the latter was more involved with tax norms, both domestic and international. Erreguerena’s arrival has ‘undoubtedly boosted the firm’s market profile’ and, after almost twenty years at what was formerly ‘OSE’ (now Ortiz Abogados Tributarios S.C.), he brings a first-class reputation for all aspects of consultancy work. Recent matters include successful litigation and PRODECON ‘conclusive agreement’ settlements, as well as extensive negotiations with the SAT regarding transfer pricing issues, particularly deductions; the team also has a number of significant cases with the Big-4.

  • 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?
