Get the rating agencies’ view of Mexico at LL - GRR restructuring summit

Speakers from Moody's and Standard & Poor's will give their perspective on Mexico and debt-laden state oiler Pemex at the Latin Lawyer - GRR 4th Annual Restructuring Summit, which will be held next week on 11 July at Paul Hasting LLP’s office in New York.

Economist and managing director of Latin American Sovereign Ratings at Standard & Poor’s, Lisa Schineller, and senior vice president at Moody's, Pete Speer, will weigh in on the state of Mexico's economy and Pemex in the event’s first panel.

Schineller, a regular conference speaker, also teaches at Columbia University. She is responsible for formulating Standard & Poor's forecasts for the Latin America region.

Speer is a seasoned Moody’s analyst with 16 years of experience under his belt. He follows oil majors and is well positioned to comment on Pemex’s fortunes.

Also on the panel is the chief economist at Mexico’s Ministry of Finance under the Peña Nieto administration, Luis Madrazo Lajous, and former assistant director of refining at Pemex, Bernardo de la Garza. Ritch, Mueller, Heather y Nicolau, SC name partner Thomas Heather returns to moderate this timely discussion.

The panel on Mexico and Pemex (now the most heavily indebted oil company in the world) is one of five. The full programme can be found here, while tickets can be purchased here. Free entry is available for in-house and government lawyers.
