Benefit from comprehensive services in the energy industry, including a broad array of practice area capabilities, distinguished by our hands-on experience tailored to the energy industry.

Members of our team worked on the natural gas midstream liberalization in 1995, helped with further opening the power sector by ushering in private generation plants (both gas-fired and renewables), and assisted with the provision of integrated services and turn-key projects for the national oil company Pemex. In each of these stages, we successfully handled the structuring, bidding, implementation, construction, financing and operation of a considerable portion of all major energy projects developed in Mexico over the last two decades.
The energy industry is one of the Mexican economy’s most important sectors and has been undergoing a major transformation. For decades our energy team has been at the forefront of energy legal services—handling matters for clients from both the oil and gas and power sectors. We helped pioneer every stage of Mexico’s market liberalization, and it is why we have been considered an undisputed leader in providing legal services to the energy industry in Mexico by industry players.
