Haynes and Boone in Latinvex: Haynes and Boone Expands Mexico Office


Rafael Carmona, a lawyer with more than 12 years of experience counseling Mexican and foreign clients in the securities, banking and finance practice areas, has joined the Mexico office of Haynes and Boone, LLP as of counsel.

The addition of Carmona is part of the firm’s pursuit of lateral hiring designed to take advantage of the investment opportunities coming into play with Mexico’s structural reforms, especially in the energy sector, it said in a statement. Other recent arrivals at the 25-lawyer office include noted energy, projects and infrastructure Partner Ariel Ramos and Jorge Labastida, partner who focuses on structured finance.

“The arrival of Rafael is another signal that Haynes and Boone is becoming a top player in Mexico’s legal services marketplace,” Luis Moreno, the Mexico City office administrative partner, said in the statement. “As one of the few Texas firms with a significant presence here, we are in a great position to assist in the wide range of cross-border transactions anticipated as liberalized policies are approved by the Mexico legislature. Rafael will be a key component of that effort."
