Latin Lawyer Notes Promotion of International Franchise Attorney Rob Lauer


"US law firm Haynes & Boone LLP has named Rob Lauer as partner in its Austin office in Texas.
Lauer, 36, works on domestic and international franchise transactions, including for US franchisors entering Latin America. His clients in the region include Outback Steakhouse, Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar and film rental business Blockbuster.

Although the economic downturn has taken its toll on his domestic practice, Lauer says that international work has picked up. "A lot of companies in the US are looking to expand in countries where the crisis isn't as bad," he says. "They're looking abroad more than they were two years ago."

He joined Haynes & Boone in 2005, having previously worked as in-house counsel for restaurant chain Schlotzky's.

Lauer's is one of eight partner promotions announced by Haynes & Boone for 2009."
