The guide is intended to serve as a toolkit for micro and social entrepreneurs and help them strengthen their business or project in compliance with laws and government provisions, thus contributing to the rule of law.

Baker McKenzie, the global leading law firm, in conjunction with Centro Mexicano Pro Bono, carried out the third re-launch of the Legal Guide for Micro Business, a toolkit on legal issues expressed in a simple way and directed specifically to the sector of micro and social entrepreneurs who greatly contribute to the economic and social development of the country.

This pro bono project, like the last two editions that were launched in 2020 & 2021, was framed in the Firm's Summer Internship Program, being the product of the joint work of the students participating as summer interns and senior attorneys from the Firm, as well as the guide from Centro Mexicano Pro Bono.

The 2022 edition contains updated information on the different regulations, laws and provisions that regulate companies in Mexico. It also addresses issues such as the incorporation of companies, social security, corporate affairs, conclusion of contracts, intellectual property and copyright, marketing and electronic commerce, commercial affairs and tax matters, which help the micro-entrepreneur to know their obligations in these areas.
