Haynes and Boone, LLP is excited to welcome back Partner George Hinchey to the firm’s San Antonio office and Real Estate Practice Group. With his return to Haynes Boone, George becomes the eighth lawyer to return to the firm since the beginning of 2023.

A Texas native, George represents private and institutional parties with the acquisition, disposition, leasing, financing and development of commercial properties. He has practiced in San Antonio throughout his entire career after graduating from the University of Texas.

"Haynes Boone is a firm of compassionate perfectionism with lawyers who work hand-in-hand cross-functionally to create flawless work for their clients,” George said. “The real estate practice and the firm are moving in an exciting direction both nationally and globally, and I am thrilled to jump back in with a team of lawyers that I have great respect for."

“We are ecstatic to be welcoming George back to Haynes Boone,” said San Antonio Office Managing Partner Diana Liebmann. “Having known George since 2016, we can rest assured that he is a dedicated lawyer who will contribute significantly to the unique collegial culture within our office and to the excellence of our Real Estate Practice Group.”

George is the fourth addition to the Real Estate Practice Group in the last two months, joining David Hengstler in Orange County, W. Stephen Wilson in San Francisco and Joe Sarcinella in New York City.

"The addition of four talented professionals across four key cities signifies a strategic expansion for us, broadening our national real estate practice,” said Brad Lavender, co-chair of the Real Estate Practice Group. “This move enhances our ability to serve clients comprehensively and reinforces our position in the industry."
