Haynes and Boone Voted as One of the Top Global and North American Law Firms for Transactions by Private Equity Real Estate Magazine


Haynes and Boone, LLP was named one of the top three law firms in the categories of Global Law Firm of the Year and North American Law Firm of the Year for 2008 by PERE (Private Equity Real Estate) magazine.

Haynes and Boone’s top-three placement in the transactional categories for Global Law Firms and North America Law Firms was determined by a vote of industry peers in real estate private equity and PERE subscribers.

The firm’s representation of U.S. and foreign commercial and investment banks in capital commitment subscription financings for real estate private equity funds in North America, Europe and Asia led to the PERE 2008 designations. Haynes and Boone was voted the No. 1 North American Law Firm for transactions in the PERE awards handed out for 2007.

“We are again gratified to be held in such high esteem by our clients and peers who voted in this year’s competition,” said Haynes and Boone partner Tim Powers, chair of the capital commitment subscription financing group that pioneered the genre. “We’ve got great clients and strong relationships within this practice. They inspire us to achieve greater things.”

Haynes and Boone clients benefit from more than 20 years of industry experience with capital commitment subscription facilities.

“We would like to congratulate our clients Bank of America and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation for winning PERE’s Global Debt Provider of the Year and Asia Debt Provider of the year, respectively,” Mr. Powers said. “Our clients engage us to work with them and their fund borrowers at the earliest stages of their deals, so we can assist in structuring financing facilities that take into account current market factors, the funds’ institutional investors’ relations, and the latest legal issues. This approach permits us to reconcile our client’s and the borrower’s operational and investor needs, and often to contribute to solutions that lead to more effective structures and efficient execution.”

Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international corporate law firm with offices in Texas, New York, California, Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Moscow, providing a full spectrum of legal services. With almost 550 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by The National Law Journal.
