Sebastian Limeres (Argentinian Abogado-Lawyer) (*)
Born and raised in Manhattan, New York. Then, 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.
Afterward, back 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 on Argentine Soccer Law. While at this law firm he was exclusively assigned to the biggest soccer club bankruptcy-case known in Argentine history. In addition, he 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.
Afterward, 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. Actually, 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. In fact, 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 on 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 in the world in their Contracts and Legal Department in the Silicon Valley-headquartered in Redwood Shores, CA.
Furthermore, in this position, he managed the company’s financial contract division in the Latin-American countries in which they operated. For example, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and Venezuela. In addition, Paraguay, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Puerto Rico among others.
Similarly, as a Lead Financing Contracts Administrator, he was responsible for the division’s contract-portfolio worth in excess of USD500MM+. In addition, in this capacity, he was in charge of several Contract Administrators throughout Central, South and Latin America.
In other words, the added value compared to all his other Argentine attorney-colleagues is being a native-born U.S. citizen. Likewise, he has lived and worked nineteen years in the USA -in both the East and West coasts. Additionally, he has 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.”
Similarly, 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 the Republic of Argentina; Argentinian Inheritances and How to Collect Funds Owed from Argentine Debtors”
Afterward, in 2014 Mr. Limeres became licensed with the San Juan Provincial Bar Association (FASJ) due to a US Energy and Gold Mining client who has retained his firm’s legal services in Argentina to inherit land holding gold as well as other minerals. In addition, he also became licensed in Cordoba and Mendoza due to Estate-Probate/Succession cases requiring him to be licensed in those Argentina provinces.
Polo in Argentina
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, polo fields, and real property.
For instance, in General, Rodriguez -home to Argentina’s most exclusive polo clubs- he represented different patron-owners from England, Australia, France, and the USA respectively, while selling their entire polo clubs to new Argentine buyers. Actually, these transactions were international multi-million dollar transactions.
Argentine Foreign Legal Consultant
In 2013 Mr. Limeres was accepted as California’s first Argentine Foreign Legal Consultant with the State Bar of California. Indeed, this license entitles Mr. Limeres to advise clients in California only about Argentine Law. See Rules. Moreover, in 2016, he also became licensed as an Argentine Foreign Legal Consultant with the State Bar of Texas #24100446 as well as the Florida Bar.
In general, Mr. Limeres is also retained as an Argentine Penal/Criminal lawyer in high profile international cases involving extraditions and cases that involve Interpol where United States (USA) Citizens or British (UK) Citizens are involved. In addition, criminal cases in Argentina involving tax/tributary and fiscal laws or other related matters.
International Legal Expert / Consultant
The main reason why so many foreign clients retain Mr. Limeres’ legal counsel is that of his understanding as an International Legal Expert-consultant. 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.
For instance, 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.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Limeres is the founding partner of an Argentine law firm that unites attorneys with a unique international background. Hence, absolutely all his team has lived and worked in the United States of America.
Similarly, other members have also lived and worked in different metropolitan cities of the world. Most importantly, LBVL&S, Attorneys has the policy to only work with lawyers who can understand their clients’ culture and language.
In conclusion, Mr. Limeres is licensed to practice Argentine law in eight different jurisdictions.
