Mexico > Energy and natural resources Tier 5

A spin-off from Ontier México in mid-2018, boutique start-up LHO focuses on providing legal advice to companies, mainly in the energy and infrastructure sector. Currently, the four-person team primarily acts for renewable energy companies, particularly in the wind and photovoltaic segments, but also includes a number of oil-and-gas sector participants on its client roster. Practice-head Luis Miguel Ramírez Ruggeberg (also co-managing partner of the firm), garners praise for providing ‘exceptional service and expertise regardless of the size of the client’. Intermediate associate Omar Plomares, who focuses on the development of clean energy projects, provides key support.
