HOUSTON George Y. Gonzalez, an attorney with broad experience counseling U.S. and Latin American businesses in general corporate, energy and mergers and acquisition law, has joined the Haynes and Boone, LLP Houston office as a partner in the International Practice Group.

His experiences range from counseling public and private corporations and other business on corporate, partnership or other limited liability structure; providing day-to-day guidance for operating and transaction strategies; and negotiating combination, service agreements and public-private partnerships.
