Capital markets Tier 1
'A very professional team that provides very good customer service with great attention to detail', Nader, Hayaux y Goebel, SC's capital markets practice 'stands out for its depth, experience and sophistication'. The 13-strong group, the core of which has been working together for over 25 years, advises on the full spectrum of capital markets issues, from securitizations and structured finance to equity placements, IPOs and equity-fund leveraged buyouts; it is also experienced in CKD and FIBRA matters and works on capital raisings to fund infrastructure and energy projects. Practice head Michell Nader Schekaiban remains a reference in the market and leads on the lion's share of capital markets mandates; Hector Arangua focuses on complex securitizations, private funds, securities issued by Mexican companies and outside of Mexico, and CKDs (including designing and implementing first-of-a-kind CKD transactions); a case in point being his advice on the first CERPI issuance in Mexico. With market-leading knowledge in CKDs, FIBRAs and securitization, Gunter Schwandt is noted for his 'dedication, depth, and professionalism'. Hans Goebel's practice is centered on securitization and CKD-related mandates; he recently advised a financial entity on a significant securitization, as well as assisting Prudential Capital with a $75m private notes issuance in favor of Grupo Gondi. Goebel, Julian Garza, Mónica Ramos and associate Paulina Bracamonte are 'outstanding Mexican lawyers, with a deep knowledge of structured financing, and broad knowledge of the Mexican market, both in terms of legislation and its practices'. Diego Sanchez Villarreal and Ana Paula Telleria, who made partner in January 2018 and 2019 respectively, are also noted.
‘Nader, Hayaux y Goebel’s capital markets team stands out for its depth, experience and sophistication. It is a very professional team that provides very good customer service with great attention to detail. Their response times are exceptional and they focus on providing efficient and pragmatic solutions. In addition to their capacity, experience and knowledge of the market, the attorneys in the capital markets practice area of Nader, Hayaux y Goebel focus on taking care of the client’s interests and at the same time proposing solutions that lead to close operations successfully. They are pro-business. I particularly recommend Gunter Schwandt for his dedication, depth, and professionalism.’
‘NHG (particularly Hans Goebel, Julián Garza, Mónica Ramos and Paulina Bracamonte) have supported us in the generation, review and negotiation of contracts required for the structuring of financing in a private securitization format under Mexican legislation. It is important to highlight that the structured financing that we have originated with the support of NHG represents the most complex financing transactions that we originate at the local level; presenting a high degree of sophistication, in strict adherence to the global standards for this type of structure. With respect to other law firms in Mexico (top notch), NHG stands out for the participation it has had in both public and private securitizations and, consequently, for the high technical-level it exhibits in this regard, as well as the clarity with which NHG attorneys draft the financing documents (considering a complex financing structure) which greatly facilitates both the negotiation of the documents and the operational understanding of the structure. I would also highlight (i) the accessibility of the partners to review the detail particularities of the financing structure to be formalized; (ii) the technical expertise that the members of the firm (from partners to associates) demonstrate in the generation, review, and negotiation of financing documents; and (iii) the clarity with which they manage to capture the complexity of the financing structure in the documents.‘

Nevertheless, the team has lost some associate strength with Fernando Castillo V's mid-2019 departure for Clifford Chance; Alejandro Alfonso's November move to Chévez, Ruiz, Zamarripa y Cía SC; and Andrea Vázquez Torres' March 2020 return to Vega Guerrero Abogados.

The plus is their experience, since they have successfully participated in various PPA projects. There is a lot of dedication to our project; I’d highlight the work, attention and ability of Andrea Vázquez and Alejandro Rojas.’
‘A client-oriented firm with a highly-regarded team and impressive capabilities. Their attention to detail, deal-friendliness and responsiveness is top notch. Javier Arreola and Santiago Medina (partners) are among the highest regarded project finance, energy and infrastructure lawyers in the region. Their ability to push deals through and find client-oriented solutions is impressive. Their knowledge of the local market is also unique.‘
