Jorge Labastida Quoted in Latin Lawyer on Joining T&K

“Haynes and Boone loses another partner in Mexico”

Thompson & Knight LLP has strengthened its Mexican finance practice, hiring a partner from Haynes and Boone SC again.

Thompson & Knight announced Jorge Labastida’s, 50, hire on 14 May. With more than 25 years’ experience in the Mexican legal market, he brings significant knowledge of banking and finance services, especially project finance and securitizations.

…Labastida says he moved to Thompson & Knight because it takes an aggressive approach to pursue growth in Mexico. “Besides the firm’s obvious strength in the US, it boasts a phenomenal array of talent and geographic coverage for handling Mexico-related matters, spanning all areas of law that are relevant to my finance practice,” he adds.
