Mexicomatters

A team OF Bi lingual and Bicultural PROFESSIONALS SERVING THE FOREIGN INVESTOR IN MEXICO since 1984:

100% foreign owned Mexican corporations – We have provided the service of establishing more than 300 foreign investor owned corporations: Manufacturing, real estate development, retail,  tourism, import/export and not for profit.

Joint Ventures – The most successful approach to investing in Mexico is with the “right partner” and good contracts.  We can help you find that partner “fit”.  And,  secure your investment with legal and administrative support.

Real Estate – Mexican real estate is a safe investment. Provided you follow the same simple rules that apply in the United States: Assure unencumbered title in the county department of records, appraise the property, open escrow and title insure the property with a U.S. title insurance. company: Stewart or  First American Title.

Mexican property title, for foreigners, can be secured with a bank trust on coastal properties or fee simple ownership in the interior of Mexico. Property can also be held by foreigners in a Mexican corporation (see, “article name”).

Recouping a seemingly lost investment – Before 2007, 70% of our business was helping our clients purchase finished properties with title insurance. Today real estate purchase represents less than one percent of our business.  Twenty percent of our work is now helping foreigners with “bad investments” recoup “something”.  Call us at no charge to review your case and provide a legal opinion.

Dual Citizenship – For first or second generation Mexican Americans – in 30 days.

Most of the writing and research done on this web site is the fault of LeRoy Jose Amate. He has worked in Mexico as a foreign investment consultant since 1985.  Amate has a passion for helping foreigners understand the intricacies of doing business in Mexico. 

He has worked with Departments of tourism throughout Mexico as a syndicated radio host and he is a regular contributor to both U.S. and Mexican newspapers. Amate’s book “The U.S. And Mexico, Joined at the Groin” now available www.amazon.com, Bennett-Hastings, publishers.
