June 25, 2021
Haynes and Boone, LLP Partners Ricardo Garcia-Moreno and Larry Pascal have been featured in Latinvex’s 2021 Top 100 list of lawyers handling legal business in Latin America. Garcia-Moreno was recognized for his experience in the Corporate/M&A and Energy practice areas and Pascal was selected in Aviation, Corporate/M&A, Energy, and Real Estate.

The editorial and research staffs of Latinvex, the Miami-based publisher of news and analysis on Latin America business, selected lawyers for its 9th Annual Top 100 list based on a combination of factors, including their recent track records on major deals and business, the prominence of their firms in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Legal 500.

Garcia-Moreno serves as the Administrative Partner of the firm’s Houston office. He practices corporate law with an emphasis on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, energy, securities law compliance and corporate governance. He has more than 25 years of experience representing U.S., European and Latin American clients in domestic and international transactions involving mergers, acquisitions and divestitures; investments; joint ventures; corporate governance; capital markets transactions, including public, Rule 144A and private placements of equity and debt securities; and acting as "outside general counsel" to public and private companies.

This is the third straight year that Garcia-Moreno has been included in Latinvex’s Top 100 list.

Pascal serves as the chair of Haynes and Boone’s Americas Practice Group and co-chair of the International Practice Group. He has more than 25 years of experience in advising companies on their cross-border Latin American and Spanish projects, advising clients on transactions, work-outs, and disputes throughout Latin American and the Caribbean (as well as other parts of the world), and has traveled extensively throughout the region. He historically has been very active in a variety of markets, including but not limited to Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Costa Rica. He has also worked extensively on numerous multiple jurisdiction projects, particularly in the Americas and Europe.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Pascal has been recognized by Latinvex as one of the Top 100 lawyers handling legal business in Latin America.
