Global law firm White & Case LLP has strengthened its Global Project Finance Practice with the addition of Francisco de Rosenzweig Mendialdua as a partner in its Mexico City office.
De Rosenzweig is a former Mexican federal government official and most recently served as the deputy minister of foreign trade at the Ministry of the Economy, where he led Mexico's international trade negotiations on issues such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and The Pacific Alliance Trade Initiative, and represented the country's interests before the World Trade Organization.
He has held many different positions in the public sector, including chief of staff to the minister at the Ministry of Communications and Transport, general counsel for public expenditure at the Ministry of Finance, executive secretary at the Inter-Ministerial Commission for Public Expenditure, Financing and Privatization, and general counsel for the Energy Regulatory Commission.
"Mexico is an important market for many of our clients and with the introduction of energy reforms, the country is increasingly attractive for foreign investment," said White & Case partner Arthur Scavone, head of the Firm's Global Project Finance Practice. "The addition of Francisco strengthens our practice in Mexico. He brings extensive knowledge of the infrastructure, energy and transport sectors at a time when the demand for his skills is increasing, and we're excited that he's joined the Firm."
White & Case's Global Project Finance Practice advises sponsors and developers on complex domestic and cross-border transactions, ranging from strategic joint ventures and project structuring and development work to advising on the full range of project financings including commercial bank loans, export credit agency and multilateral facilities, project bonds and Islamic financings.
