Mexico > Banking and finance

Housing a highly-regarded banking and finance practice that is always ‘a guarantee of excellence’, international full-service firm White & Case S.C., is a frequent choice for some of Mexico’s best-known corporate entities, as well as many leading local and international financial institutions. With notable expertise as regards regulatory mandates, the large team, which ‘possesses a high degree of specialisation, client knowledge and timely and unbeatable attention’, also advises on syndicated and revolving credit facilities (and their refinancing) and secured and unsecured loans, among other financing modes. Senior partner Vicente Corta is highly experienced on both the transactional and regulatory sides of the practice; he co-heads the department with Juan Antonio Martin, whom clients regard as ‘a true leader in banking matters’. Other key practice partners include Maria Teresa Fernández-Labardini, who advises on a wide range of banking regulatory matters; Manuel Groenewold and Carlos Mainero, who are both well known in the market; and Andrés Mosqueira, who made partner in January 2020 and is praised for his ‘great professional acumen and a broad business vision’; he too has a regulatory focus, particularly in connection with payment systems, securities and fintech products and services.

Mexico > Capital markets

Capital markets is one of the core practices for White & Case S.C.‘s Mexican office; in this field, it has a sizable team with a solid track record handling a broad array of transaction types and regulatory mandates, with a particular strength in debt operations. As part of a global firm, the department also benefits from having access to a considerable office network. Juan Antonio Martin, who has a focus on securities, and receives praise for his ‘high ethical standards’, co-heads the department with fellow partners Vicente Corta and Manuel Groenewold, who specialises in securities offerings, subordinated notes, FIBRA-Es, CKDs and other structured securities. 2021 kicked off with significant promotions in the team, such as that of partner Carlos Mainero, who concentrates in capital markets and financial regulatory advice; and counsel Eric Quiles, who also provides key support.
