FOUNDING PARTNER

Mr. Regalado is specialized in commercial and civil law, litigation and arbitration with over 15 years of experience. His practice comprises State responsibility for wrongful acts, constitutional law (e.g. freedom of speech and right of reply), public and private international law, banking, real estate, suretyship and insurance law, oil & gas, leasing, trusts, transactions, consulting, contracts, and conflicts of laws and jurisdictions.

He is well known for conducting successful two-pronged litigations on the fraudulent bankruptcy of the financial entities “Ficrea” and “Alta Grupo” for several billions of pesos, claiming the lifting of the corporate veil in the commercial lawsuit, and the State responsibility for wrongful acts in the administrative arena. Mr. Regalado has also successfully defended a huge luxury resort involving nine figures, where each real estate unit was illegally sold 3 or 4 times, winning the 91 litigations that sprang from such case.

We have caused the first judicial precedent in Mexico in regard to the constitutional right of reply. Our lawfirm won the first lawsuit on behalf of the presidential candidate Ricardo Anaya vs El Universal on account of false and inaccurate information published by such newspaper.
