Antonio M. Prida, Partner (Mexico City), Publishes Article in Mexican Law Review

Partner Antonio Prida and former associate Mauricio Foeth collaborated on an article titled “Foreign Direct Investment, Restrictions and Privatization: The Mexican Regulatory Experience,” that was published in the Mexican Law Review of the Legal Research Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (IIJ-UNAM).

The article presents the different political and economic stages of Mexico's evolution to a free market economy, as well as the important changes made to laws on foreign investment in preparing for the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Mexico- European Union free trade agreement and other bilateral agreements on investment promotion and protection. The article also explains the legal framework of the subsequent privatization of the economy in Mexico.
