International Trade & Customs

Mexico has a wide network of free trade agreements, which grant reciprocal preferential access to over forty countries in the North American, European, Latin American, Israeli, and Japanese markets.


With vast experience, RVA Abogados has established itself as Mexico’s premier international trade specialist. The firm’s attorneys have successfully represented domestic and foreign companies and industries before Mexican and foreign authorities. Also, our lawyers have acted as panelists in NAFTA panel reviews.


We have substantial expertise in antidumping, countervailing duty, and safeguard investigations. Also, our attorneys specialize in NAFTA law (Chapter 19 panel reviews, origin determinations, advanced rulings, and customs matters), dispute settlement proceedings in accordance with international trade agreements, and a wide variety of customs issues.


The international trade practice group also advises clients on customs-related investigations and/or proceedings conducted by Mexican authorities. Our attorneys have represented clients on matters related to certificates of origin, customs audits, origin audits, and the establishment and operation of export promotion programs.


In addition, RVA Abogados has substantial experience advising clients on how to reduce or eliminate market access barriers for goods and services under existing international trade agreements to which Mexico is a party.
