Banking & Finance

CMS Woodhouse Lorente Ludlow advises local and international financial and banking entities on complex regulatory issues that affect, or may affect, their activities in Mexico and abroad.

We ensure our services are ahead of market trends, anticipating the challenging environment in which business operates. A tailored commercial approach is key. We want your business to thrive. Whether you are a bank or a corporation, a financial service provider or an entity confronted with regulation, an investment fund or public entity, our priority is resolving your challenges and putting your world first. We provide both local advice and multi-jurisdictional expertise, taking a personalised approach to select the teams that will best fit with the scope of each matter.

Moreover, the Firm advises company owners and non-financial traders in order to prevent them from engaging in transactions that are exclusive to financial institutions, which could result in severe civil and criminal penalties. We also advise entities in the real estate sector and the financial sector in the financial operations held between each other, which includes active participation in project finance.

We select and tailor the teams that will best fit with the scope of your matter. Top level project management goes hand in hand with expertise. Rigor and determination go hand in hand with innovation. We aim to be one step ahead of market developments, in order to build relationships with you that last.
