Mr. Holguin has extensive practice in business and corporate law, and has been counseling companies doing joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions throughout Mexico.

Mr. Holguin has ample experience conducting complex customs and international trade audits to Mexican companies related with valuation, HTS classification, and rules of origin, and regularly assists companies in designing and implementing their customs and foreign trade compliance procedures. He provides legal advice to maquiladora companies on how to maximize the tax incentives of the Mexican Government and how to efficiently pay Mexican Income Tax, IETU tax, import duties and Value Added Tax.

Ricardo Aguirre, is a member of the Notarial Group and concentrates his practice in loan structuring, guarantee trusts, and real estate transactions. He earned his law degree, summa cum laude, from the Instituto Tecnológico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, and he also has earned a Master’s degree in Business Law from the Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez (UACJ), in addition to having obtained an Academic Diploma issued by the UACJ in Notarial and Public Property Registration Law (a Graduate specialization course during one  semester).

Mr. Aguirre was granted the title of Candidate to be a Notary Public (Aspirante a Notario Público), after passing a rigorous examination by an examining board comprised of a representative of the Government of the State of Chihuahua and by four members of the Colegio de Notarios del Distrito Bravos, A.C. (the Notarial College of Bravos District, the equivalent of a local Notarial Bar), which focused on notarial, commercial, civil, real estate, tax and family law.

Before joining the firm, Mr. Aguirre worked for two years in the corporate department of an international law firm where he practiced foreign investment, real estate law, corporate governance and commercial transactions.
