Mexico > Real estate

Operating from Monterrey and Mexico City (and backed by the firm’s global network), international full-service firm Hogan Lovells fields a nine-strong Mexican real estate practice, which is lauded for going ‘above and beyond to help its clients’. The team, which has vast experience in complex real estate transactions – including those related to public offerings, financing matters, collateral and co-investments for real estate projects – is co-led by Mexico City-based partners Ángel Domínguez de Pedro and Juan Francisco Torres Landa1, in conjunction with Guillermo González Frankenberger in Monterrey. All three are civil, corporate and commercial experts with a focus on real estate, project finance, M&A and shareholders disputes. Counsel Fernando Medina Luna, who goes ‘above and beyond to assist‘ with work ‘under tight deadlines’, and senior associate Luis Lauro González, are additional key figures in the practice group.
