Latin Lawyer Features Haynes and Boone in 2013 International Directory 12/2/2013
Latin Lawyer has highlighted Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers and four practice groups in its 2013 International Directory.
The directory calls the firm "well regarded across a range of industries and sectors in Latin America" and said it offers "a more fluid cross-border practice between the U.S. and Mexico than many other rivals with an office south of the border." Latin Lawyer also cited the firm's cooperation agreement with Rio de Janeiro-based energy specialists, MMA Advogados.
Larry Pascal, chair of the firm's America's Practice Group, was recognized for his high profile and "broad practice in the region," while Partner Antonio Franck was singled out as "one of the top corporate partners in the country with a wealth of international experience." The directory also highlighted Franck's work, with Partner Alberto de la Peňa, in advising Ares Management in a joint venture with a Mexican investment fund and Temasek, Singapore's wealth fund.
The Real Estate Practice Group was praised for its work in advising Hyatt Hotels in its acquisition of a 756-room hotel in Mexico City from Japan Mexico Hotel Investment, while the Restructuring Practice Group was noted for "having a consistent book of restructuring work in Latin America, particularly in Mexico."
