Hone Maxwell LLP Partner Carolina Juarez focuses on corporate transactions for businesses of all sizes and types. For more than 20 years, Carolina has provided skilled guidance on everything from joint ventures for real estate projects to manufacturing deals. This includes incorporation of domestic and foreign entities, establishing financial structures and conducting due diligence on mergers and acquisitions.

With a strong focus on international business, businesses and individuals in Mexico who want to move to or expand into the United States rely on Carolina’s unique cross-border business law experience to guide them. Licensed to practice law in both California and Mexico, Carolina brings a deep understanding of both countries’ business cultures and corporate laws to her U.S. legal practice, ensuring successful bi-national transactions. 

Mexican nationals looking to conduct business in the U.S. face many obstacles — just as there are many challenges associated with running a business in Mexico. Carolina, who was born in San Diego and grew up in Tijuana, has witnessed firsthand the obstacles businesses on both sides of the border face. Bilingual in English and Spanish, Carolina efficiently helps her clients understand the legal and financial nuances embedded in cross-border business transactions. 

Carolina provides start-to-finish guidance to family businesses, closely held corporations and individuals looking to expand their business into the U.S. in a variety of industries, from hospitality to agriculture. She also delivers skillful counsel on all aspects of real estate transactions for Mexican investors and developers looking to expand their real estate portfolios in the U.S.

Carolina dedicates her time and legal knowledge to Corazon de Vida, a California-based nonprofit that raises funds for orphanages in Baja California, Mexico. She assists with fundraising and organizes groups of professional colleagues to visit the orphanages to bring awareness and much needed aid to the orphan children in Baja.
