Litigation in Mexico
Lets face it: Nobody likes to go to court, but sometimes you are left with no choice than to fight for what you are entitled to under the Law.
Though we believe in pursuing settlement by way of negotiation, or mediation, somes cases require aggressively pursuing a matter with the Mexican Courts.
At Osuna González we have over twenty years experience in dealing with complex litigation in the following areas:
The Structure of Mexican Courts.
The Mexican Court System consists of State and Federal Courts.
State Courts are divided in Courts of First Instance (trial level), and appellate Courts which is typically the State Superior Court. Even after a case is decided at the appellate level, a case can still end up in a Federal Circuit Court for review.
Federal Courts are structured similarly, but dedicate most of their efforts in Federal Injunction Cases (amparo) deciding issues of constitutionality, or Federal Criminal Cases. Still, they have concurring jurisdiction --along with State Courts-- in Commercial Matters, but have exclusive jurisdiction in Bankruptcy cases.
On appeal, the Mexican Federal Courts decisions are reviewed by a single appellate judge. If the case involves a Federal injunction case, the review will be by a panel of Three Judges sitting on a Circuit Court.
