Eduardo Siqueiros T.
Eduardo Siqueiros practices primarily in the areas of commercial and corporate law, insurance, and arbitration. He also has decades of experience advising clients in trans-border transactions.
Eduardo spent 30 years as a partner at Barrera, Siqueiros y Torres Landa prior to the firm's merger with Hogan Lovells in 2014, where he focused his practice on corporate, commercial, and insurance law — including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and arbitration.
In his arbitration practice, he acts as both counsel and arbitrator. He has served as sole arbitrator or chair of the tribunal on various cases before the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the Mexico City Chamber of Commerce, and the Mexican Arbitration Center; as well as before the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) on investor-state disputes arising from NAFTA and various bilateral investment treaties. Eduardo is a member of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) Board.
With decades of experience and a wealth of knowledge, Eduardo is frequently approached to speak in Mexico and abroad on issues involving corporate, M&A, arbitration and investment.
"He has been described as 'the leader in the field of Arbitration as well as in Mergers and Acquisitions,' and has a 'great understanding of the needs and issues that require a corporate lawyer on issues in Latin America;' in arbitration, they recognize his 'excellence.'"
"Eduardo has been highlighted as 'one of the standout practitioners within this field' by peers. In addition, clients note that 'he is always available, and involves himself in our matters in a very personal way.'"
