Mexico > International trade and customs

A regular advisor to clients across a wide range of industries -including food and beverage, automobile, electronics and aviation- the practice at Hogan Lovells is divided into two main areas. Managing partner Juan Francisco Torres and the talented Jorge Yañez (who is notably strong on trade compliance and anti-dumping), focus on the international trade (dumping and subsidies) side, while fellow practice co-head Arturo Tiburcio is at the helm of customs matters (supported by Yañez). The solid team of five, which includes active senior associate Mario Lara, handles consultancy, litigation and administrative procedures, more specifically focusing on anti-dumping matters, tariff classification, customs compliance and regulations, rules of origin, tax audits related with customs compliance and import regulations established in tax legislation, customs/tax strategies, IMMEX/maquiladora activities, PROSEC matters, bonded and strategic tax warehousing and temporary importation regimes.
