Environment

Compliance with legal environmental provisions in Mexico has become increasingly more sophisticated and demanding.

We offer effective and creative solutions to our clients in matters related with procedures, consulting, due diligence and administrative proceedings in Environmental Law.

We represent and advise domestic and foreign clients on a wide range of day to day and transactional services arising from their need to comply with requirements associated with Federal, State, and Municipal Environmental Laws, Regulations and Standards (e.g., Mexican Official Norms) applicable to real estate properties and facilities in Mexico.

Among other services we offer:

  • Day to day and transactional advice, preventive and corrective (internal or transactional) due diligence and advice and permitting in environmental and regulatory areas, such as environmental impact and risk, water, wastewater discharges, change of forestry land use, natural protected areas, ecological zoning ordainment, national assets in charge of environmental authorities, hazardous and non-hazardous waste (including soil contamination and remediation) and air emissions, land use, zoning and construction, among others, for the development of all types of projects (including industrial, residential, hospitality, commercial and infrastructure, among others) whether ongoing or potential.
  • Assessment of legal risks and environmental contingencies associated with corporate transactions, including joint ventures, M&As, asset dispositions, leases and general project finance, among others.
  • Advice and support on administrative procedures and liabilities before environmental authorities such as the Federal Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), the Federal Prosecutor for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA), the National Waters Commission (CNA) and local environmental and regulatory authorities.

Along with our real estate, energy and corporate practices, our synergies with the different professionals and technicians who participate in the environmental field, in addition to our broad experience in environmental matters, allow us to offer our clients comprehensive and quality-focused advice in transactions subject to environmental legislation.
