International Trade and Customs
Von Wobeser y Sierra, S.C. has a solid international trade and customs practice. This area has seen considerable importance as it has been growing exponentially in Mexico as a result of its participation in international treaties and the implementation of different mechanisms promoting foreign trade. In this regard, our Firm advises our clients in different related issues such as the obtainment of the tax and customs benefits deriving from certain administrative programs (IMMEX, Prosec, NEC) and provides advice in all legal aspects related to customs clearance of merchandise.
As a complement to the above, Von Wobeser y Sierra has accumulated thorough experience advising our clients in matters regulated by the Free Trade Agreements signed by Mexico, including the North American Free Trade Agreement. In this regard, some members of our Firm collaborated directly with the working groups that negotiated and gave advice in the negotiations of such free trade agreement.
Our legal services related to the maquiladora companies merit special mention. In addition to carrying out the procedures necessary to obtain the different governmental benefits granted to the maquiladoras, we provide all the other services related to their organization and operation, including legal services in the corporate, real estate, labor and tax areas, among others.
