Squire Patton Boggs announced last week the arrival of Fernando Cano-Lasa in the firm’s Houston office.
He joins as Counsel after spending 12 years with Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), the state-owned Mexican oil and gas company, and Pemex Procurement International, Inc. where held a variety of roles in their legal departments.
With more than a decade of experience handling transactional and legal matters in the Mexican and Latin American oil and gas industries, Mr. Cano-Lasa primarily advises US and international corporations in energy and corporate law, including the interpretation of and resulting opportunities created by significant energy reform approved by the Government of Mexico in 2013.
Steven Harris, managing partner of the Squire Patton Boggs Houston office, stated:
We have been focused on growing our energy transactional capabilities in Houston and across the firm. Our domestic and international clients will benefit greatly from his counsel on key energy issues and transactions affecting the Mexican and Latin American oil and gas industries.
Fernando’s arrival comes at an exciting time for us in Texas. Following the Squire Patton Boggs combination which took effect last month, we now have an integrated team of roughly 50 lawyers spanning Dallas and Houston which provides a broader offering to clients and great opportunities that we are already realizing.
