Who's Who Legal Mexico - Administrative Litigation

Roberto Hernández-García is a Mexican attorney specialised in public and private construction projects, public procurement, and dispute resolution related to these areas of practice. He is a managing partner of COMAD, SC, a prestigious boutique law firm established in 1965 and based in Mexico City, with a focus on public procurement, construction and compliance in these areas.

Since 1989, he has advised top-class European, American and Mexican construction, engineering and architect firms in relevant construction projects in Mexico and Central America in the energy, oil, health, water, sewage, gas, petrochemical, parks, transportation, airports and building sectors, among others.

Mr Hernández has been involved in many relevant complex construction projects, acting in different capacities. Such projects include the Central American Transmission line (SIEPAC); the Tunel Emisor Oriente (a 62-kilometre sewage tunnel in Mexico City and surrounding states); the Mexico City Metro Line 12; the Panama Canal; the construction of one of the most important buildings in Mexico City; and the design and build of the largest brewery plant in Latin America.

One of Mr Hernández’ strengths in the construction area is his experience in dispute boards in Central and Latin America. He is the only Mexican and one of the very few Latin Americans appointed as sole adjudicators in projects in the region, and has been requested to speak and train in several Latin American countries on the topic because of his specific expertise.

Mr Hernández is a former chair of the international construction projects committee of the International Bar Association (IBA) and the current chair of the construction disputes committee of ICC Mexico. Mr Hernández is a member of the steering committee of the Division 8 Construction Forum of the American Bar Association (ABA), and he is a member and fellow of the Dispute Board Federation.

Mr Hernández is also certified by the Mexican Institute of Technical Auditing as an auditor of construction and infrastructure projects.

Mr Hernández has published several books as consulting editor and co-author, including International Public Procurement: A Guide to Best Practice, and Construction and Infrastructure Disputes, both published by Globe Law and Business in London, England, and Dispute Boards in Latin America, published in Perú; he was also the consulting editor and co-author of the book Legal Aspects of Public Procurement in Mexico, published by the BMA; and he was a co-author of the book International Construction published by the ABA. He has been invited as a speaker in several countries by international institutions and organisations such as King’s College, the IBA, the ABA, the ICC; the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences, the University of Lima and the Canadian Commercial Corporation, the OECD, the government of Brazil and the government of Colombia, among many others in matters related to public procurement, construction and compliance.

WWL says: Roberto Hernandez-Garcia enjoys a superb reputation for his dispute-resolution practice and excels as “a very talented lawyer in relation to public contracts”, say peers.
