JATA's Practical Handbook to Mexico's Energy Reform Offers Valuable Insights

Houston-based founder Jaime A. Treviño helps energy-focused clients avoid pitfalls

HOUSTON, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking advantage of Mexico's newly opened energy markets is enticing to many U.S. companies, but obstacles and confusing regulations await them. To help simplify the landscape, J.A. Treviño Abogados, or JATA, has produced the "Practical Handbook and Introduction to Mexico's Energy Sector" as an e-book.

"We developed this guide to provide a coherent overview of the energy reform process and to help guide foreign businesses through the maze of sometimes daunting and unexpected Mexican laws," said Jaime A. Treviño, the Houston-based founder of the law firm, with main offices in Monterrey, Mexico.

JATA is a corporate law firm that represents foreign investors and companies doing business in Mexico, as well as Mexican companies with cross-border operations. The firm's lawyers are experienced in handling a variety of corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, energy, and financings. To learn more about the firm, please visit the website:

JATA's "Practical Handbook" outlines Mexico's new rules for doing business in the energy sector from offshore oil projects to electricity generation. It provides a crisp rundown of the multitude of Mexican acronyms and names from LH, the hydrocarbons law, to Fibra E, an energy and infrastructure investment trust that is similar to a master limited partnership.

The guide also explains Mexico's land and labor rights, which are substantially different from those in the United States.

"The land or real estate in Mexico is peculiar when it comes to ownership. Most land in Mexico is not private property, so it is not easily sold," Mr. Treviño says. "Knowledgeable legal expertise is essential for negotiating access for oil and gas activity."
