The Firm

Fully guarantees each client the very best Professional legal advise and representation services in Mexico.

Introduction

The Firm was founded in 2001 by JACQUES-EDOUARD BEAULNE, who studied Law for 6 years at the Law Faculty (Civil section) of  the "University of Ottawa" in Ottawa, Ontario, Capital of Canada and at the Law Faculty of the "Université de Montréal" in Montréal, Québec, Canada; graduating with honors while terminating a 19 year career at Air Canada where he directed and traveled intensively. Said employment followed a one year as manager with RCA Victor's plant in Cowansville, Québec, Canada and 5 years of military service in the Royal Canadian Air Force from which he was honorably discharged and pensioned due an accident during service.

While at Air Canada he founded  “Les Entreprises Riboilac Inc.,”, which invested in land acquisition in the province of Québec, Canada, and of Gestion Beaulne and Lassonde Inc., which invested in international real estate ventures; as CEO of both firms he directed teams of workers in various fields such as forestry and construction.

During his law studies he decided to specialize in Civil Law and more precisely in regards to international business and real estate properties contracts and procedures, after graduating as a Bachelor of Law he elected to study in the "Diplome en Droit Notarial" program (DDN) toward acquiring the title of "Notaire" (equivalent to the position of Solicitor or Contract Lawyer in the Common Law system). Having received the Certificate from the "Chambre des Notaires du Québec" which attested of his knowledge as per the Law governing said profession he provided legal counseling to international real estate investors and continued to administer his own real estate companies which led him to immigrate to the State of Baja California Sur, Mexico in 1989 where he founded  a partnership by the name of “El Cardonal Resort S.A. de C.V.” which operates a tourist destination known today as EL CARDONAL´S HIDE-A-WAY, a construction business called  “CAN-AM-MEX CONSTRUCTION” and other businesses in La Paz, B.C.S.

Eventually invited to teach law at the "Universidad Autonoma de Baja California Sur" (UABCS). With the growing real estate development in Mexico more and more investors were seeking legal advise but the local legal offices in Baja were not adequately formed and lacked the required international law knowledge thus the need to provide recognized university level courses, under the wing of the UABCS,  in different parts of Mexico to real estate salespersons was made and led to the decision to open the first "Professional Services Center"  in the capital city of La Paz in the State of Baja California Sur, Mexico. This decision was followed by the next necessary step which was to apply for his license to practice law in Mexico.

The request was presented to the "Secretaria de la Educación Publica" (SEP), having done extensive studies in Law and possessing the knowledge of the legal system in Mexico he was admitted as a lawyer in Mexico and given the honor of being the first person, who had studied Law outside of Mexico to be recognized as having all the required qualifications to practice law in Mexico.

The next step was the decision to form “CAN-AM-MEX Firma Jurídica / Legal Firm”, a Professional Law Firm, which would provide Professional Legal Services with a team of lawyers who would specialize in areas of the legal system in Mexico so as to provide the best of the best in legal representation to clients.

As senior member of the Firm, fluent in English, French and Spanish, he specializes in Real Estate processes and/or litigation and matters related to Private International law, administrative law in regards to Immigration and Naturalization process to acquire the Mexican citizenship and Environmental issues plus fully supervises all the activities of CAN-AM-MEX Firma Jurídica / Legal Firm so as to provide professional legal services.
