Chambers Global Honors Haynes and Boone in US, Latin America


DALLAS – Haynes and Boone, LLP attorneys and practices have maintained key Chambers Global 2010 rankings across three of the firm’s geographic bases, including the United States, Mexico and Latin America.

Chambers Global once again honored Haynes and Boone’s Franchise and Distribution, Bankruptcy and Latin America-wide Corporate/M&A practices.

The franchising group received a Band 2 ranking. Chambers said the U.S.-based group “covers a range of franchising matters but its workload has been dominated of late by workouts and problem resolution. The team is also increasingly assisting clients with their expansion into markets such as Iraq and North Africa.” Practice chair Joyce Mazero, who focuses on franchise and distribution within restaurant, foodservice and retail industries, was named a key individual in the group.

In the U.S., Haynes and Boone’s International Bankruptcy practice received a Band 4 ranking. Veteran partners Robert Albergotti and Robin Phelan each landed in Band 2, among the best in their field. Chambers sources called Mr. Albergotti "an extremely savvy lawyer with a mastery of the legal issues and strategy." Mr. Phelan was called "intellectually creative.”

Haynes and Boone’s Latin America-wide Corporate/M&A practice was ranked Band 5 for its work with major clients throughout the region. Chambers said the firm has long been associated with work in Mexico, but noted a steady increase in significant projects spanning all of Latin-America. Chambers sources reported the practice “has the breadth and depth to handle large deals at a sophisticated level." Larry Pascal, head of Haynes and Boone’s Americas Practice Group, was singled out as a key player in the firm and the region.

In Mexico, Finance and Banking Partner Antonio Franck was highlighted individually, being called “an important practitioner who works with significant financial clients such as Banco Compartamos and Banco Azteca.” Mr. Frank received a Band 3 ranking.
