Gardere Comments on Mexico Financial Reforms

08.08.13

CIP Americas covered a congressional proposal of financial reforms in Mexico aimed to increase competition in the banking sector and create incentives for lending. Critics argue that the reforms could increase consumer debt in Mexico, leading to publicly funded bailouts of foreign-owned banks.

Among the key objectives of the bill is "improving trial procedures seeking faster resolution of controversies and granting enhanced rights to lenders through the courts, which are likely to expedite collections," according to Gardere Attorneys Roberto Arena, Charles E. Meacham, Marco Nájera and Joaquín Pani of the Mexico and Latin America Practice Group.

Search Tips:

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.

Operators

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".

Searches are not case sensitive.
