Arbitration & Alternative Dispute Resolution

In recent years, arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) have grown exponentially in Mexico as alternatives to settle disputes and controversies in contractual agreements, as Mexican and international companies have pursued these alternatives to costly and time-consuming litigation.


At RVA Abogados, we offer these as they are often more effective than traditional litigation and allow swifter dispute resolution. We foresee arbitration, mediation, and other forms of ADR as pragmatic ways to achieve our clients’ goals, while sparing them the cost, time, and stress of litigation.


Our lawyers are fully experienced in Mexican and international arbitration and mediation regimes and proceedings, and are also sensitive to conflicts of laws and cultural differences. Assessing our client needs, we pursue the most effective strategies in appropriate forums such as the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), as well as specialized venues, including ad hoc arbitration under the UNCITRAL Rules. In recent years, we have represented Mexican and foreign companies involved in diverse industries such as automotive, manufacturing, restaurant, insurance, consumer products, and technology. As part of our full-service approach, both our corporate and litigation teams interact in advising our clients on the proper drafting of arbitration and ADR provisions.
