The firm has a broad-based civil litigation practice in Mexico and Texas, representing clients in a wide variety of civil, administrative and labor litigation matters, including amparos. The increasingly intertwined nature of cross-border business activities inevitably leads to disputes among companies and individuals and, increasingly, governmental entities. In Mexico, CCN has developed a strong track record representing clients before the Mexican tax, customs, environmental and labor authorities.
Local CCN attorneys in the U.S. and Mexico are experienced and knowledgeable in the intricacies of Mexico’s court system. The firm maintains expertise in Mexican legal process as it pertains to all forms of litigation, including civil litigation, labor litigation, amparos and other litigation issues. The firm’s Mexican attorneys coordinate closely with clients and their legal counsel in the U.S. Attorneys work with clients on complex insurance, real estate, product liability, intellectual property, labor, amparos, bankruptcy and antitrust litigation cases in Mexico. Recently, CCN attorneys in Mexico City, Querétaro and San Antonio reached a successful settlement of a multi-million dollar intellectual property litigation case involving muptiple trademarks held by its client, a major U.S. equipment manufacturer. CCN worked with the Mexican Institute of Intellectual Property or IMPI to overturn previously registered trademarks and re-register such marks in the name of the rightful owner.
The firm represents clients in state, federal, district, and federal appellate courts and maintains close working relationships with officials at all levels of the Mexican government. CCN has also successfully represented clients in numerous tax and administrative lawsuits (amparos) favorably resolved by Mexico’s Supreme Court.
