Haynes and Boone, LLP and its Mexican affiliate, Haynes and Boone, SC have once again been recognized in the Chambers Latin America legal directory for leading work in seven Latin America and Mexico business law categories.
In the 2017 edition of the highly regarded publication, the firm is again recognized in the Latin America-wide categories corporate / M&A and energy & natural resources categories, while the Mexico-wide ranking included Haynes and Boone for banking and finance, corporate / M&A, energy and natural resources, projects and real estate.
In addition, the guide singled out nine of the firm’s lawyers for individual acknowledgement. Firm lawyers repeated recognition in the following practice areas: banking and finance, capital markets, corporate / M&A, energy and natural resources, real estate and tax.
“It is always an honor for our lawyers and practice areas to be recognized by such a prestigious publication,” said Alberto de la Pena, head of the firm’s U.S.-Mexico Cross-Border Practice in Dallas. “We pride ourselves in being trusted advisors in the Latin American market and this recognition further underscores our longstanding commitment to the region.”
The Haynes and Boone Corporate / M&A Practice Group was called “attentive, knowledgeable and professional,” and their services “excellent and very comprehensive.”
Editors praised firm’s energy and natural resources lawyers for being “adept at advising on a range of matters, including regulatory issues, and onshore and upstream oil and gas mandates,” calling the team “a strong player in the energy sector.” Recent addition to the firm, band 1-ranked Partner Nicolas Borda, was complimented as “one of the top energy practitioners,” bringing a, “good business perspective to the country's legislative and regulatory environment."
