Rely on our broad experience providing tailored services to companies in the automotive industry and addressing all their legal needs. Our team has a depth of knowledge in dealing with automotive industry-related acquisitions, opening and closing of plants and manufacturing lines or programs, divestitures, and negotiations between auto part suppliers and manufacturers.
Mexico is now the fourth-largest manufacturer of automobiles in the world, making the automotive industry one of the main drivers of the Mexican economy. Major automotive manufacturers from across the world have established a presence here over the past two decades, and as in other areas of the world, major supply chain clusters have developed around these manufacturers. This includes auto part makers and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers, while regions have formed highly skilled human resources that are making the industry continue to flourish.
From choosing a site to developing a manufacturing plant, we can guide you through environmental analysis, help with negotiating governmental tax incentives, and structure and negotiate labor arrangements for unionized and non-unionized personnel. We also provide foreign trade regulatory and compliance assistance—a key element of any successful automotive industry plant operation—including advice on the IMMEX/Maquiladora program compliance, reporting and book-keeping obligations and issues dealing with imports and exports.
If your automotive company encounters legal issues arising from doing business inside or outside Mexico, benefit from our global services, providing you with a wealth of experience in every legal tradition in the world. We are committed to providing local knowledge and extensive practice experience on a global scale.
