Fernando Luna Medina

Fernando Medina collaborates with companies in structuring, developing, and executing innovative legal strategies for large real estate projects with mixed uses in growing areas. As a problem-solving advocate, Fernando finds alternatives and solutions for his clients that allow them to develop their business within the prevailing legal framework.

Fernando's career has spanned civil, commercial, corporate, contracts, real estate, and administrative work. From his first years as a lawyer, Fernando participated in financial projects of waste water treatment plants, gaining experience in the restructuring of projects that involve the reorganization and merger of companies. Later on, he started to represent clients in administrative filings (complaints) before the Federal Attorney's Office of Consumers, supporting them in commercial promotions, information, and advertising regarding different products and services. Fernando has extensive knowledge in real estate matters, providing advice (in both English and Spanish) regarding industrial, leisure, commercial, and housing projects. He has also been involved in several agrarian transactions, providing advice to avoid legal claims on specific social land in Mexico.

Given his diverse practice, Fernando has assisted national and transnational clients from many industry sectors including aeronautics, food and beverages, computers, entertainment, finance, retail, leisure, housing, technology, and entertainment.

Fernando, who joined Hogan Lovells in 2000, has worked in the analysis, negotiation, and execution of transactions to establish supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, and clothing stores. He has also assisted institutional real estate developers, real estate investors, and local and transnational companies whose core assets depend on real estate, with feasibility studies for various types of real estate projects.

"Key support comes... increasingly from newly promoted counsel Fernando Medina, who in addition to his general corporate and commercial real estate experience is a regulatory and licensing specialist in the sector."
