Agrarian Law

The team has an established agricultural law practice. Considering that the surface subject to the social property regime (ejidos) occupies more than half of the national territory, it is inevitable that the developers of large infrastructure projects require legal assistance to have certainty in land tenure.

Our experience covers the different areas of agrarian matters, including: review of assembly minutes, contracts of use and surface occupation, cessions of agrarian rights, recognition of neighborhoods and possessors, constitution of rural companies, contribution of land to commercial companies and advice in matters of national lands.

In addition to the substantial knowledge of agrarian matters, the team's litigious capacities and expertise on constitutional claims, enable us to effectively represent our clients in disputes settled before the agrarian courts.
