2 min read
Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Capital Markets Practice with the addition of Eduardo Flores Herrera and Narciso Campos Cuevas as partners in Mexico City.
"As Mexico's investment landscape continues to evolve and its economy becomes even more integrated with the US, more transactions are multijurisdictional—requiring counsel who can navigate multiple areas of law," said White & Case's Mexico City Office Executive Partner, Francisco de Rosenzweig. "Eduardo and Narciso bring years of experience on the most challenging cross-border matters, both in private practice and public service in the Mexican federal government. Their arrival further deepens our bench of preeminent lawyers and uniquely positions the Firm to advise on the full spectrum of capital markets, regulatory and other transactional matters in Mexico."
Flores advises issuers and underwriters on public and private securities offerings, including real estate investment trusts (FIBRAs), Certificates of Capital Development, securitizations, and unsecured and subordinated debt. He has significant expertise working with fintech clients and also represents domestic and international lenders in a broad range of financings. Flores served as vice president of Securities Supervision for the National Banking and Securities Commission in Mexico, where he helped to develop regulations and supervise issuers, underwriters and other participants in the Mexican securities market.
Campos advises financial institutions on complex regulatory matters, including licensing, compliance, anti-money laundering, shareholdings and corporate structures, corporate governance and internal controls. He also has extensive experience in a wide range of bank finance, capital markets and M&A transactions. Campos served as assistant secretary for Banking, Securities and Savings at the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit in Mexico, where he oversaw public policy related to the development, supervision and regulation of the banking sector and the securities market. He is also a former chief of staff to the Secretary of Foreign Affairs in Mexico, where he played a key role in the renegotiation of NAFTA.
Flores and Campos both began their careers at White & Case and spent more than 10 years working in the Firm's Mexico City office. Flores started as an associate in 2003, and was promoted to local partner in 2013, prior to joining the Mexican federal government in 2014. Campos began as an associate in 2002, and was promoted to local partner in 2012, prior to joining the Mexican federal government in 2013.
"The continued expansion of our market-leading capabilities in Mexico, and more broadly in Latin America, has been a strategic priority for the Firm, and we expect to continue seeing strong growth and client demand for our experienced team in Mexico," said John Vetterli, Head of White & Case's Global Capital Markets Practice. "Eduardo and Narciso both started their legal careers at White & Case, so we have long been familiar with their strong capital markets, regulatory and additional transactional experience, which will be a highly valuable resource for our clients. We are delighted to welcome them back to our team."
