Thompson & Knight has represented clients in business transactions in Latin America for more than 35 years. Through our office in Monterrey, we counsel U.S., Mexican, and international clients currently doing business, or considering doing business, in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America.
We provide U.S. and Mexican legal counsel in diverse commercial transactions and matters. The clients served by our Monterrey office range from individuals to multinational conglomerates and host governments and include financial institutions, manufacturers and distributors of industrial goods, manufacturers and distributors of food and beverage products, offshore oil and gas drilling services, real estate development companies, and entities in the agriculture, energy, construction, telecommunications, transportation, and retail sectors.
Thompson & Knight has been an active participant in the Mexican energy industry for decades. We have helped our clients participate in many of the groundbreaking projects that led to the opening of Mexico’s energy sector and assisted them in analyzing and understanding the business opportunities in a heavily regulated environment.

Because border commerce and trans-border commercial operations often involve immigration, employment, and labor issues, we have extensive experience with maquiladora facilities and all relevant union, non-union, employer, and employee relationships. Our attorneys also help clients comply with federal and state employment laws and treaties, and regularly defend employers against every form of employment-related claim, dispute, and lawsuit.
