Regarded as a topnotch alternative when it comes to banking and finance matters, Galicia Abogados S.C. appeals to clients – including international and local lenders and borrowers – for the depth and strength of its robust department, which has proven experience handling cross-border syndicated transactions; teaming up with the firm’s M&A team for acquisition finance; sub-sovereign matters; real estate, projects and infrastructure financings; and regulatory work. The practice has particular expertise as regards the financial service sector itself, along with deep engagement with the retail, hospitality, and food & beverage sectors. The department jointly led by a seasoned partner trio consisting of fintech expert Arturo Perdomo ; Guillermo Pérez Santiago , who is recommended for his expertise in capital markets; and Humberto Pérez-Rocha . Up-and-coming figures include Rodrigo Rivera  (corporate, project and real estate finance, secured transactions, domestic and international financings, debt financing, restructuring, and public sector (state/municipal) financing), and in the firm’s Monterrey office, Rosemarie Mc Laren   (appointed partner in January 2021) who focuses on local and cross border, bilateral and syndicated loans. A solid second line is led by senior associates Lili Abascal (public financings; local and international financings, refinancing and debt restructuring), and Jorge Javier Mendízabal (banking, finance, capital markets, with an emphasis on sustainability-linked transactions). Since research concluded, the team has been notably bolstered with the August 2022 incorporation of veteran practitioner Carlos Obregón Rojo, formerly at Ritch, Mueller y Nicolau, S.C.. However, former counsel Cecilia Rojas moved in house as GC of Altán Redes the following month; and since publication, Mendízabal has also left the firm – effective as of November  2022.
