In December 2010, the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice confirmed by unanimous vote the constitutionality and legality of the Administrative Dispositions for Contracting Rules for Pemex (the DAC's), which were implemented in August 2010. The referred ruling confirmed among the most important issues the legality of incentive-oriented contracts and provided strong grounds for the provisions of the DAC's which leave behind the old rules set forth in the Mexican Acquisition and Public Works Laws.
As discussed at Gardere's panel event "Tips on Bids: Pemex New Rules" on Oct. 7, 2010, the DAC's present an array of exciting new opportunities and challenges for companies that wish to continue or commence direct or indirect business with Pemex.
Among the opportunities that are presented to contractors, we find the following to be the most significant:

Our lawyers have broad and in-depth knowledge of this industry and are eager to assist you, not only in detecting and avoiding regulatory pitfalls, but also in providing business insight to assist you in reaching your goals.

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
