Born and raised in Manhattan, New York. After having lived for over an entire decade in downtown Manhattan his family relocated back to Buenos Aires, where he grew up and spent the next twenty years of his life in Argentina.
In Buenos Aires, Mr. Limeres graduated as a Juris Doctor from Buenos Aires University Law School. While attending U.B.A. he worked for an Argentine commercial court until moving to private practice upon graduating with honors.
In Argentina he worked for one of the very few law firms which had a focus in Argentine Soccer Law. While at this law firm he was exclusively assigned to the biggest soccer-club bankruptcy-case known in Argentine history. He also worked for the Legal Divisions of two Fortune 500 companies in the Argentine automobile industry. In both cases he reported directly to General Counsels in the United States of America.
In 2003, Mr. Limeres relocated back to San Francisco, California, where he obtained the California Department of Real Estate Broker License, also known as CA DRE Broker. This license entitles its licensees to transact in areas such as Minerals, Oil, Gas, Petrol, Loans, Precious Metals, Agricultural Commodities and California Real Property.
While in California, Mr. Limeres also worked for the Chicago offices of one of the nation’s most prominent law firms in the United States until he was offered to act as the Broker of Record for a California Licensed Mortgage Brokerage. This California Corporation generated as much as six million US dollars per month in loans which were later packaged into the U.S. financial secondary market to banking and financial firms in Wall Street.
Mr. Limeres is also listed with the California Department of Real Estate as a Licensed Officer and Broker of Record: Ultimately, before returning to Argentina where he founded Limeres, Barassi, Ves Losada & Stanzione, Attorneys, he worked for the second known biggest Software Credit Corporation with their Contracts and Legal Department in the Silicon Valley headquartered in Redwood Shores, CA. In this position he managed the company’s financial contracts division in the Latin-American countries in which they operated (Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Paraguay, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica, Colombia and Puerto Rico among others). As a Lead Financing Contracts Administrator he was responsible for the division’s contract-portfolio worth in excess of USD500MM+. In this capacity he was also in charge of several Contract Administrators throughout Central, South and Latin America.
Mr. Limeres’ added value compared to all his other Argentine attorney-colleagues is being a native-born U.S. citizen who has lived and worked nineteen years in the USA -in both the East and West coasts-, as well as having lived and worked another twenty years in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Sebastian Limeres is the legal author of several articles and legal papers about: “Argentinian and International Overseas Probate-Estates; Successions involving Heirs living in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Abroad; Inheriting Argentinian Assets and Real Property through Trusts, Wills and Testaments Overseas; Estate Planning for Argentine Heirs; Selling Real Estate in Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Mendoza in Argentina; Argentinian Inheritances and How to Collect Funds Owed from Argentine Debtors”
Mr. Limeres recently became licensed with the San Juan Provincial Bar Association (FASJ) due to a US Energy and Gold Mining investor who has retained his firm’s legal services in Argentina. He also became licensed in Cordoba and Mendoza due to Estate-Probate/Succession cases requiring him to be licensed in those Argentina provinces.
Also, Mr Limeres has built a solid reputation in the Argentine Polo scene for having represented most of its foreign patrons and land-owners in the sale and purchase of horses and polo fields and real property. For instance, in General Rodriguez -home to Argentina’s most exclusive polo clubs- he represented two different patron-owners from Australia and the USA respectively, while selling their entire polo clubs to new Argentine buyers. These transactions were international multi-million dollar deals.-
In August of 2013 Mr. Limeres was accepted as California’s first Argentine Foreign Legal Consultant with the State Bar of California. This license entitles Mr. Limeres to advise clients in California only about Argentine Law. See Rules.
Mr. Limeres is usually also retained as an Argentine Penal/Criminal lawyer in high profile international cases involving extraditions, cases involving Interpol where United States (USA) Citizens or UK Citizens are involved as well as when criminal cases in Argentina involve tax/tributary anf fiscal laws or matters.
The main reason why so many foreign clients retain Mr. Limeres’ legal counsel is because of his understanding as an International Legal Expert. This is due to his bicultural experience of having lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Silicon Valley and Manhattan while in the USA, as well as Buenos Aires Downtown-Recoleta and Nordelta-Tigre, Buenos Aires while in Argentina.
Mr. Limeres normally travels back and forth, and is constantly in contact and up to date with both Argentina as well as the United States.
