Energy and natural resources Tier 5

A relatively new entrant to the market, Norton Rose Fulbright is nevertheless led by experienced figures Hernán González Estrada and Raquel Bierzwinsky, )who divides her time between Mexico and New York). The growing team is also commended for its more junior lawyers, including senior associate Carlos Campuzano who 'has an in-depth understanding of the Mexican electricity sector'. A recent highlight saw the team advise Enel Green Power on the $1.35bn sale of an 80% stake in its renewables assets to Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and CKD Infraestructura México.
