Mayer Brown Adds New Partner in Mexico City

May 17, 2018, 06:59 AM

Mayer Brown announced today that Raúl Fernández-Briseño, a leading transactional lawyer with deep experience in infrastructure, M&A, finance and restructuring transactions, has joined the firm as a partner in Mexico City, together with two associates. Fernández and his team join from the Mexico City office of White & Case.

“The market has reacted enthusiastically to our office in Mexico City, which opened for business a couple of years ago,” said Ariel Ramos, a partner in Mexico City and member of Mayer Brown’s global Banking & Finance and Energy practices. “While our core capabilities in Mexico are in energy, infrastructure and finance, we are seeing a considerable increase in client demand for assistance in all three of those areas, including in matters involving M&A, joint ventures and restructurings. Raúl checks all of those boxes and will substantially enhance our ability to serve clients in the energy and other sectors.”

Fernández brings impressive experience in M&A transactions and financings, particularly in the telecommunications, aviation and private equity industries. He advises clients on shareholders arrangements, cross-border transactions and corporate disputes. In addition, he has handled complex structured financings and regulatory issues in several industries, including but not limited to telecommunications and transportation, as well as a variety of project-finance matters.

“Mayer Brown has a sterling reputation among different industries, which view the firm as a fantastic resource for solving complex problems and steering clients through sophisticated transactions,” said Mr. Fernández. “In addition, the firm’s global platform and impressive track record in handling cross-border matters will augment my practice and present numerous opportunities to serve our clients.”

Fernández, who spent nearly 20 years at his former firm, will serve as the head of M&A at Mayer Brown in Mexico City. He holds an LLM from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and has been a commercial law professor at Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México for more than a decade.
