Navigating your way through a commercial dispute anywhere can be stressful and disruptive. As you may guess, Mexico is no exception.Given the risks of today’s volatile business climate, our main goal is to help clients avoid disputes as early as possible, rigorously reviewing contracts and figuring out how to deal with potential problems before they happen. Our many years of experience working in the Mexican system means we understand what’s at stake and how to avoid common pitfalls.
First, we believe that a winning strategy does not necessarily happen in court rooms, particularly when a company wishes to preserve a valuable business relationship or avoid adverse publicity. For this reason – and whenever possible – we encourage clients to explore alternative ways to resolve disputes via negotiation, mediation, arbitration and other means.
When potential fraud, misrepresentation or theft is involved, however, it’s important not only to take swift legal action but to react with as little disruption and out-of-pocket expense as possible.
When it’s in our client’s interest to litigate, we do so vigorously, ensuring that their contractual rights are fully protected and enforceable. Our legal team works relentlessly to understand the key issues involved and to identify the most cost-effective ways to meet our clients’ needs.
Sectors in which our attorneys and investigators have worked include insurance, agriculture, real estate, technology and health care. We have handled cases involving:
- Breach of confidence
- Misrepresentation claims
- Exclusion and limitation clauses
- Breaches of trust and fiduciary duties
- Unjust enrichment and knowing receipt of illicit gains
- Economic torts, including breaches of contract
- Fraud related to the sale or supply of agricultural goods
- Claims involving agency, distribution and franchise agreements
- Warranty and indemnity claims
Since every business dispute is unique and fact-specific, methods and results vary from case to case. To get a better idea, you may wish to schedule a consultation with an AFAM attorney.
