Our Trajectory

Doporto Abogados is the result of the entrepreneurial spirit of its founding partner, Luis Doporto Alejandre, providing consultancy services to international companies and helping them assimilate in the Mexican market as a result of the signing of the Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement between Mexico and the European Union.

This led to the creation of a law firm that specializes in 12 main legal areas of practice such as: Corporate, Labor, Real Estate, Public- Administrative, Financial, M&A, Intellectual Property, IT, Energy, International Trade, Gaming, Litigation and Arbitration.

Over the past 20 years, Doporto Abogados has evolved from a traditional law firm to a boutique consultancy firm that specializes in comprehensive transaction structuring and execution, in addition to supporting its clients in not only legal but also financial, commercial and business processes.
