Latin Lawyer Ranks Haynes Boone Among Leading Law Firms in Latin America

January 14, 2022

Haynes and Boone, LLP is featured in the 23rd edition of Latin Lawyer 250, a ranking by Law Business Research of the leading law firms doing business in Latin America.


Haynes Boone is ranked as “highly recommended” for its work in three areas: Aviation, Corporate and M&A, and Energy.


Haynes Boone is “well regarded across a range of industries and sectors in Latin America, which differentiates it from those Texan rivals who have stuck closely to energy work. While energy is of course important to Haynes and Boone, corporate, restructuring and real estate are all core areas too,” said the editors of Latin Lawyer 250. “Among its peers, Haynes and Boone stands out for having extensive aviation experience in Latin America, representing some of the largest airlines, investors, manufacturers and service providers on a broad range of matters.”


The editors also noted the “positive feedback” from clients about Haynes Boone’s Latin America capabilities, including the “lawyers’ professionalism, attention and availability.”
