Investor-State Arbitration in the Mexican Energy Sector
April 6, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM ET

Holland & Knight is pleased to present our complimentary Latin America Series, during which we will explore various topics and provide in-depth analysis of the business and legal opportunities across the region. Our presentations are highly encouraged for companies considering entry into the Latin America market or already doing business in the area.

You are cordially invited to our upcoming presentation, "Investor-State Arbitration in the Mexican Energy Sector." Our attorneys will address key issues and new trends in the political landscape in Mexico, conflicting views with investors from other countries and possible arbitration.

By combining in-depth knowledge and years of practical experience, our attorneys will address how companies can respond to the changes, identify associated risks, avoid conflict and strengthen their positions in investor-state disputes.

Topics include:

  • Legitimate expectations of investors derived from the 2013 constitutional amendments
  • Electricity sector and hydrocarbons (summary of the 2013 reforms that triggered the investments): What would be a legitimate expectation based on such reforms?
  • Key measures adopted by the Mexican government since 2018 in the energy sector
  • Status of the constitutional amendment in the electricity sector
  • Potential violations (violations of specific standards)
  • Is negotiation a possibility in Mexico, and how could a cascade of disputes affect your claim?
  • Mexican investor-state arbitration framework and what to expect in an investment dispute (jurisdictional aspects, fork in the road, prescription period for claims, duration of proceedings, etc.)

We hope you will be able to join us for this highly informative presentation.
