New Specialized Antitrust and Telecom Court

On September 22, 2021, the Plenary of the Federal Judiciary Council approved the creation and commencement of functions of the Third District Court in Administrative Matters, specialized in Antitrust, Broadcasting and Telecommunications (“Third Court”), residing in Mexico City and with jurisdiction throughout the Mexican Republic.

The decision was taken in a context of work overload in the District Courts specialized in these matters, caused mainly by the amparo lawsuits filed against the reforms to the Electricity Industry Law, the Hydrocarbons Law and the Federal Telecommunications and Broadcasting Law, among other general regulations promulgated by the Mexican State in 2021.

The Third Court will begin its functions on November 1, 2021 and will be domiciled in Mexico City.

We would be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding this matter.
