Latin America-focused Eloy Barbará de Parres is experienced in international arbitration, particularly within the energy sector, as well as in infrastructure development, international corporate and financial transactions, privatizations, joint ventures and project finance. His practice involves large-scale projects in the power industry, including independent power projects, as well as build, lease and transfer transactions involving power plants, transmission lines and substations.
Mr. Barbará de Parres has over a decade of experience advocating on behalf of sovereign states and state-owned entities in high-profile international disputes, including high-stakes investor-state arbitrations in the oil and gas sector. He has represented sovereign clients in English and Spanish proceedings conducted under the rules of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA).
Mr. Barbará de Parres has vast experience in the energy and natural resources sectors, and frequently works with governments to draft, structure and negotiate petroleum contracts, including exploration, appraisal and development of oil and gas fields, as well as power production and distribution agreements.
He has advised on build, own and operate transactions for the world’s largest nitrogen production facility, as well as coal storage facilities for the power industry. He was an active participant in a multi billion-dollar plan to upgrade five refineries in Mexico, and in a program to increase production capacity in the Cantarell and Ku-Maloob-Zaap oil fields, also in Mexico. Recently, he has participated in drafting and negotiating oil and gas risk contracts in Latin America.
Mr. Barbará de Parres also assists state-owned entities with structuring major project finance transactions, and has drafted and negotiated contract documents, as well as conducted international bidding processes, in several of the largest transactions in Latin America in recent years. He also advises on supply contracts which form the basis for project finance transactions, as well as other project documents, including engineering, procurement and construction contracts.
Prior to joining Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, Mr. Barbará de Parres was a legal advisor at the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit in Mexico, where he participated in the review, negotiation and registration of loan agreements and other documents involving state-owned companies and banks, as well as the Federal Government of the United Mexican States.
Mr. Barbará de Parres is recommended by Legal 500 Latin America for his regional arbitration practice, as well as his domestic-focused dispute resolution, energy and natural resources and banking and finance experience.
