He has advised clients in government negotiations and is experienced with parent guaranties and their enforcement.

Eduardo is experienced with midstream, transport, infrastructure, storage facilities, and transloading projects. He is also experienced in preparing and negotiating purchase and sale agreements for refined products (gasoline and diesel). Eduardo represents clients in negotiations with Pemex and its subsidiaries and trade arms (PMI Comercio Internacional), including industry service contracts, and CIEP migrations.

Maritime: Eduardo has deep experience in Maritime Law and helps shipping companies with their business ventures in Mexico. Eduardo focuses on the maritime offshore (oil and gas) industry, including shipping finance, design of guarantee structures through maritime mortgages, guarantee trusts and pledges. Eduardo is distinguished as a go-to lawyer for setting up Mexican shipping companies, bareboat charters, time charters, ship-management, salvage claims, flagging and registration of vessels, and government relations with the Mexican Maritime Agency. Eduardo also has represented shipping company clients with the Mexican Chamber of the Maritime Transport Industry (CAMEINTRAM) with successful results.

Finance: Eduardo also practices financial law. He has experience in commercial lending as an adviser to banking institutions in the structuring of loan transactions, preparing and negotiating loan agreements, guaranties (mortgages, pledges and guarantee trusts), payment vehicles, loan syndications and security assignments.

Project Finance: Eduardo also handles project financings in the energy and transport sectors, plus real estate finance for industrial parks, tourist hotels, and shopping malls. He primarily focuses on finance transactions involving the three main Mexican Development Banks (Bancomext, Nafin and Banobras) plus cross-border Nadbank.

Real Estate: Eduardo is experienced in handling land acquisitions, leases, title review and due-diligence, including hospitality such as operation agreements and development agreements. Mexico’s real estate regime is complex in nature as many land is incorporated to a specific “agrarian” protective regime in which ejido communities have full disposition. Also Eduardo has good knowledge and understanding of the Mexican Public Registry of Property, which is a unique and complex record system when it comes to title registration and liens. Eduardo is experienced in industrial and hospitality – touristic project development and financing.

Getting the Deal Through – Shipping 2019: Mexico

Eduardo Corzo, a Counsel in Haynes and Boone’s Mexico City office who focuses on maritime and shipping law, contributed to a new legal guide titled, “Getting the Deal Through – Shipping 2019.” Eduardo wrote the chapter that covers shipping as governed by the law of Mexico. Each chapter in the guide covers key issues such as ship registrations and mortgages, maritime liens, and responsibilities and liabilities of the shipping company. The Mexico chapter is a brand new section and is included for the first time in the latest edition of the guide. Additionally, the chapter on Mexico looks at trends related to cabotage navigation, fair competition, a shift toward more open markets, and the effect of Mexico’s energy reform on shipping.
