Firm Details

Thompson & Knight has counseled U.S., Mexican, and international clients currently doing business, or considering doing business, in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America for more than 35 years. Our Mexico City office, opened in 2005, greatly supports this effort.

Our Mexico offices were recognized in the 2010 Chambers Latin America legal directory by Chambers & Partners in the Corporate/M&A, Energy & Natural Resources, Labour & Employment, and Real Estate practice areas. According to the publication, our clients in Mexico "are in safe hands when it comes to multi-jurisdictional deals," and the Firm's "well-integrated" Labour & Employment team in Mexico offers clients consistent support, "the ability to coordinate international work through the Firm's global network, and its understanding of the needs of international businesses."

We provide U.S. and Mexican legal counsel in diverse commercial transactions and matters. Attorneys in our Mexico City office represent some of the largest domestic and transnational companies in Mexico in cross-border mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, and reorganizations; labor, employment, and social security law; collective bargaining negotiations and strike procedures; corporate governance; general corporate and administration matters; banking and securities law; public and private project financing; joint ventures; infrastructure and privatization processes; technology transfers and licensing agreements; intellectual property law; telecommunications matters; and LNG, pipelines, and oil and gas matters, among other areas.

Working closely with our office in Monterrey, these capabilities give our attorneys the flexibility to provide services not only to large, sophisticated, transnational corporations, but also to small and medium-sized companies doing business in Central and South America.
