Commercial arbitration in Mexico has increased exponentially as one of the favored methods of corporations to resolve disputes with a certain degree of complexity, or matters in which there is significant economic risk. In the international environment, however, commercial arbitration has become the default method for resolving international and cross-border disputes.
The members of LITREDI have a deep-rooted understanding of the field and have been at the forefront of well-known cases that have set precedents in the arbitration and related litigation arenas. In their professional trajectories, our attorneys have participated and prevailed in the most relevant international arbitrations in the history of Mexico in terms of complexity and amounts in dispute, facing or co-litigating with foreign firms in the “magic circle.” This experience puts us in a privileged position for counseling our clients in the adoption of arbitration agreements, the design of dispute avoidance strategies, the early management of future controversies, and, if necessary, representing them in all stages of a dispute once the need for arbitration arises.
Our lawyers regularly appear as counsel before all major arbitral institutions, such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) International Division of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the Arbitration Center of Mexico (CAM), the Center of Mediation and Arbitration of the National Chamber of Commerce (CANACO), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), as well as ad hoc arbitrations under the United Nations Commission for the Unification of International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Rules.
Our team members have thorough experience sitting as arbitrators and as legal experts in arbitration proceedings.
We offer the fundamental added value of exceptional experience in managing lawsuits with judicial intervention of Mexican Courts prior to and during the arbitration (provisional measures, appointment and challenge of arbitrators, enforcement of arbitration agreements, etc.), or once the award has been rendered (special lawsuits aimed at setting aside or achieving the recognition and enforcement of awards). In this capacity, our team’s participation has been notable in obtaining the recognition and enforcement of awards under the parameters of the New York Convention regarding the concept of public policy, and in handling cases related to provisional measures that have led to establishing relevant precedents.
