Freshfields in Mexico

Legislative reform has opened Mexico to foreign investment, particularly in the energy sector. With opportunities also come risks, and doing business in Mexico remains challenging. We have been advising clients on growing, strengthening and defending their business in the country for decades.

We are at the forefront of developments in Mexico, and are currently acting on what will be one of the largest project financings in Mexico under the new energy reforms.  

Our Mexico group forms part of our wider Latin America practice and is made up of both native and fluent Spanish speakers, including many in our New York and Washington DC offices.  

Our experience extends across all practices (sectors and disciplines) but with a particular focus on corporate and project transactions, global investigations, regulatory – including anti-bribery and corruption risk – energy and natural resources, infrastructure and transport, and dispute resolution. Our transactional teams work closely with our global investigations and leading international arbitration groups from the outset to ensure the best possible structure for a matter and investment protection.

Our close collaboration with local regulators as well as leading law firms in the country means we know how to get a deal done or successfully represent a client in disputes relating to the country.
