Dedicated Attorneys Licensed in the U.S. and Mexico Helping Clients Protect Their Wealth Across Borders and for Future Generations

As a successful Latin American professional with investments in the United States, or an entrepreneur doing business here, you need lawyers who not only understand your need for highly personalized, top-quality service, but who also speak your language and share your culture. At MEG International Counsel, PC, our dually licensed attorneys work exclusively with high-net-worth international clients on business and estate planning concerns. We make every client feel like they’re our only client.

What We Do for Our Mexican and Latin American Clients

As a small, highly specialized firm, we are able to provide personalized legal services that bigger American firms just can’t provide. The husband and wife team of Antonio and María Elia Gastélum bring their professional expertise on Mexican law and their degrees from one of the top law schools in Mexico to the practice of international law in California and Texas to serve Latin American businesspeople with interests in the United States. We focus on two practice areas:

  • International estate planning. As a wealthy, multinational family with investments in the U.S., you must take special care to structure your assets to be tax-efficient and to preserve your wealth for generations to come. If you have beneficiaries who are American citizens, their inheritances will be subject to U.S. estate tax unless you have a plan in place to avoid this. Our extensive experience with trusts, estates, and wealth management for international clients will ensure that every contingency is considered to protect your wealth for multiple generations.
  • International business planning and transactions. Our business legal services include international business, tax planning, contracts, intellectual property, real estate, and other cross-border matters, including aircraft financing and regulations, and registration of yachts and other marine vessels. Our real estate services include providing advice on property purchases, sales, investments, and retitling issues. Our services extend to both American and foreign citizens as well as private and public companies. We can also act as general counsel for your international business.

Our attorneys focus on providing personal and comprehensive services to our clients, whatever and wherever their international business and estate planning needs are.

We Build Lifelong Relationships

Whether we are helping you create an estate plan, assisting with business transactions, facilitating real estate deals, or anything else, we personally guide you through every step of the process—we’re totally committed to your success. When you hire us, there is no limit to the number of questions we will answer or the number of explanations we will provide. Our deliverables are guaranteed for a year, and you are free to make any changes you need during that time—at no additional charge. Our goal is to build a lifelong business relationship and a personal friendship with each of our clients. Very few estate planning and business attorneys in California and Texas are prepared to do this, nor do they understand international law the way we do.
