Latinvex, publisher of daily news and weekly analysis on Latin American business, has ranked Haynes and Boone, LLP as one of the top international law firms doing business in Latin America for the sixth consecutive year.
Overall, the firm was ranked 18 in the 2017 list of the top 70 law firms in Latin America — up from a ranking of 20 in 2016.
The editorial and research staff of Latinvex ranks the top international law firms in Latin America overall and in 18 practice areas. The rankings are based on a combination of factors, including value, prominence and scope of work between July 2016 and July 2017, and references among clients and peers, according to Latinvex.

• Aviation (ranked 1)
• Banking & Finance (9)
• Corporate/M&A (16)
• Energy (4)
• Environment (2)
• Mining (8)
• Real Estate (1)
