Let us Help.
Hi. How may we help you?
Ever since my law school days, my professional goal was clear on my mind: I wanted to found and lead a Mexican law firm which will set new quality standards, both in the legal work itself, but also importantly in client service, ethics, and professionalism. When I graduated from law school (ITESM Law School, Monterrey, Mexico, cum laude, May 1991), I had the fortune to be offered a job as international corporate counsel at Cemex). On my first day, just out of law school, I was assigned to my office and introduced to what at the time seemed to be the highest pile of documents I could have thought of. Most of them were regarding international matters which I had never even heard before. The adventure began.
My job was fascinating. I had great mentors which guided my first steps into my new responsibilities, and I learned quickly. I got immersed into “top of the crop” international corporate legal work, dealing with major global banks, law firms, and financial advisors. All sorts of public & private financing transactions and international M&As became my everyday work. Still as International Corporate Counsel at Cemex, I was offered to be a foreign associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom’s program in New York. Again, I was thrilled and my job was fascinating. Working at Skadden opened my eyes to a whole new world, and positioned me again working side-by-side with the top players in the global financial and M&A world. Perhaps most importantly, I learned to better understand the way global business and legal leaders analyzed the issues at hand, and this certainly marked me again in the path towards the goal that I had set for myself years back.
I was back at Cemex for a few more years, and then decided to leave the work and team that I so much enjoyed to pursue my dream. In 1997, the offices of J.A. Treviño Abogados opened in Monterrey, committed to form and lead an extraordinary team of attorneys in the practice of corporate law in Mexico, exceeding the quality standards which I knew global players expected.
I am proud of the great team of attorneys which make JATA what it is today, and I am enjoying the process and our great experiences and success. It took me some time to realize that the adventure had really started again in 1997; my work is equally or perhaps even more fascinating today.
JATA now has offices in Monterrey and Houston, and we strive every day to be the best team of corporate attorneys in Mexico. Please let me know how we can be of assistance. Let us help.
