Gonzalez Calvillo - Meet new stardards

Our Practice

Gonzalez Calvillo is a recognized leader in oil, gas and power related laws in Mexico. We are considered one of the preeminent firms with significant experience and expertise in the development and financing of the most important energy and infrastructure projects in our country. For the past thirty years our lawyers have developed critical knowledge and made key contacts and relationships by working with national and multinational sponsors, developers, banks, export credit agencies (ECA’s), multilateral development banks, international financial institutions, international oil companies (IOC’s), contractors, service companies, investors, private equity funds and other clients in a broad range of projects and transactions related to Mexico’s energy, oil and gas and power sectors.

Our experience includes participating in the leading and most complex M&A, joint ventures, project finance and infrastructure projects and in all kinds of international public bids in the areas of pipelines, petrochemicals, natural gas distribution, transportation and storage, LNG facilities, power generation, IPPs, solar, cogeneration, EPC’s and PPP’s.

As part of our participation in these sectors, we have worked closely with (and sometimes represented) the principal Mexican regulators and former state-owned companies, including Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX), the PMI Group of Companies, the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (Federal Electricity Commission or CFE), the Secretaría de Energía (Ministry of Energy or SENER), the Comisión Reguladora de Energía (Energy Regulatory Commission or CRE), the Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos (National Hydrocarbons Commission or CNH), Secretaría del Medio Ambiente (Ministry of Environment or SEMARNAT), etc.

We have also been closely associated with shaping the most recent constitutional energy reforms in Mexico, intended to open new investment opportunities both in oil & gas and electricity and revamp the incumbent state-owned companies and regulatory agencies, as well as the subsequent publication of the new secondary legislation and regulations for these sectors. Our firm also continues to strengthen our institutional relationships with officers of PEMEX and CFE and officials from the newly empowered regulatory agencies. Therefore, we are in a privileged position to accompany and advise potential new players in the Mexican market, as well as established companies that wish to expand their operations in the energy sector in Mexico and maximize their opportunities in this arena.
