Legal analysis and market Intelligence for Public Law in Mexico

Due to the relevant developments in the Mexican legal market and following in-depth conversations with key practitioners and clients, the Chambers Latin America team have decided to introduce a new area of research for Mexico: Public Law, providing law firm clients and the legal market a unique insight and analysis of this growing area of Mexican law.

Below our department provide useful information through the answers to some frequent questions our researchers have recently been asked:

What type of work falls within the definition of the new area of research named Public Law?

As stated on the Chambers and Partners Latin America's website, the Public Law research: Focuses on the relationship between individuals or private entities and central and local government and other public or regulatory bodies, which for the purpose of the Latin America guide covers constitutional and administrative law matters such as, contentious and non-contentious proceedings, judicial reviews, litigation before constitutional courts, advice on the powers and administrative functions of the government.

It also includes matters relating to public procurement, as well as regulatory advice excluding regulatory work related to specific practice areas already considered in a particular jurisdiction: Competition, Energy & Natural Resources, Labour and Employment, Life Sciences, Tax, TMT, Intellectual Property, among others.

Will Dispute Resolution: Administrative Litigation be still researched this year in Mexico as part of the 2023 Latin America Guide?

No, we won't research Dispute Resolution: Administrative Litigation as part of the 2023 Latin America Guide. As stated in our definition, the Public Law research will include both contentious and non-contentious matters. This means that the work highlights generally listed for the Dispute Resolution: Administrative Litigation section during the previous years should be now reported in the Public Law submission form instead.

When will the Public Law research for the Chambers Latin America 2023 guide start?

The Public Law research process will officially start in March 2022. As we do with all sections we research for the Latin America guide, the researcher in charge of the Public Law section will contact all participants law firms at the beginning of the research period.
