Eduardo Aguirre in the Texas Lawbook: Former U.S. Ambassador Moves to Haynes and Boone

01/17/2014


The former U.S. ambassador to Spain and Andorra, Eduardo Aguirre, joined Haynes and Boone, LLP’s Houston office as a senior advisor, the firm announced last week. He will focus specifically on international business and strategic issues in Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as U.S. inbound investment, banking and finance, energy and immigration matters.

Aguirre said the firm’s strong focus on Texas, Mexico and Brazil and his frequent interactions with many Haynes and Boone partners, such as George Gonzalez, convinced him that joining forces would be symbiotic and allow him to add value to their clients and prospects...

Despite his background in banking and government, Aguirre is no stranger to the legal profession. He was the first non-attorney to chair the Texas Bar Foundation and served as a non-attorney director of the State Bar of Texas.

“Those years, interfacing with the cream of the crop of Texas lawyers, served to anchor my deep respect and appreciation for the legal profession,”he said. “Joining Haynes and Boone, where former State Bar President Lynne Liberato and other giants of the legal profession are partners, is a special treat for me.”
