Folsom Y Asociados, S.C., (Folsom) are US lawyers in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, now known as CancunLaw, was created in 1994, by two US attorneys, to serve the needs of the large numbers of Canadian and US citizens moving into Mexico and has now become the primary law firm for these citizens. At the time of its creation, it was the only Mexican law firm allowed to be owned outright by US attorneys and the only Mexican law firm allowed by the Mexican government to offer both US and Mexican legal services within the Mexican border. It reportedly is the same today.
These special permits make it uniquely qualified to address the needs of people and businesses with assets or other legal interests on both sides of the border. As a result, CancunLaw has served as a safe landing site for hundreds of people entering Mexico for the first time. Today, each of CancunLaw’s clients receives personalized representation and direct access to both a US and a Mexican lawyer.
As a result, Folsom represents clients all over the Republic of Mexico and is the law firm of choice for US and Canadian businesses and citizens in Mexico.
For over two decades, our main areas of emphasis have been Mexican real estate, Mexican trusts, (known as a “fideicomiso”), Mexican corporations, US and Mexican Wills, US and Mexican probate, and the litigation cases that go alone with those areas of law. As always, we continue to be on the cutting edge of the US-Mexico law industry. Our role continues to be the bringing together of the two separate and distinct cultures and jurisdictions, and the education of our clients and the protection of their assets in a legal system that is rapidly changing and a culture that they may not understand.
