Luis Enrique Cuervo is a partner in the Litigation Practice Group, where he focuses primarily in the areas of oil and gas, energy, and natural resources.
Luis advises US and Europe-based clients on their complex international transactional and litigation needs, including white collar crime, assistance before foreign courts, and in international commercial and investment arbitrations.
Luis counsels investors and multinational companies engaged in international business, including in Latin America, among other oil and gas, mining, admiralty, insurance, and reinsurance matters. His counsel runs the gamut, from the negotiation of operational documents and contracts to advice on a broad range of issues such as best form of domestic incorporation, foreign investment, specific industry regulations, and host-country environmental regulation requirements. Luis regularly drafts contracts and advises on labor laws and mandatory labor benefits, as well as on the appointment of representatives, agents, and distributors.
Luis provides Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) anti-corruption convention training and advice in connection with codes of conduct, financial matters (including loans, real estate, commercial transactions, and all in-country legal issues), and litigation representation. He also helps companies navigate the bidding processes for refinery construction abroad and with matters regarding trade-related sanctions, license requests with OFAC, due diligence processes, and investigations.
