Haynes and Boone Maintains Strong Presence in Chambers Latin America, Two New Categories


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 eight Latin America and Mexico business law categories.

In the 2016 edition of the widely respected publication, the firm is again recognized in the categories of (a) Latin America-wide corporate / M&A and (b) energy and natural resources, while the Chambers 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 eight of the firm’s lawyers for individual acknowledgement, including two new categories, tax and environment. Firm lawyers repeated recognition in the following practice areas: banking and finance, capital markets, corporate / M&A, energy and natural resources, projects, and real estate.

“For Chambers to recognize so many of our attorneys and practice areas is a great honor,” said Alberto de la Peña, head of the firm’s U.S.-Mexico Cross-Border Practice in Dallas. “The firm has a long-standing commitment to the region and we pride ourselves in being trusted advisors in the Latin American market.”

Editors praised the Haynes and Boone corporate/M&A practice’s “standout expertise in the Mexican market,” and noted their “roster of high-caliber clients throughout the region,” including AT&T, Ecopetrol and Lehman Brothers Holdings.

The firm’s energy and natural resources lawyers were also praised for being, “particularly well-seasoned in oil and gas transactions,” and for their, “solid presence on notable mandates across Latin America.”

Individually, Mexico City Partner Ariel Ramos repeated his Band 1 ranking in both projects and energy and natural resources. Ramos is noted for his, “deep experience in the sector, particularly oil and gas, with strength in project development and finance matters.” He was further complimented as, “one of the most renowned energy lawyers in Mexico.”
