Analysis: The Mexico City office of Mayer Brown was founded in 2015. The team offers both international and local transactional capabilities to clients in the energy, infrastructure, telecommunications and private equity sectors. The team has substantial experience on corporate, finance, M&A, banking & finance and regulatory matters and is noted for expertise advising clients from the oil and gas and power industries. It strengthened its capital markets team in 2022 by hiring an associate from a top-tier local firm as counsel. The firm often works with its counterparts in Texas on energy transactions, for example recently advising the Mexican subsidiary of US energy company Talos in its sale to Grupo Carso for US$125 million. Its banking and finance team has also recently assisted Mexican lender R2 Capital and US credit provider Alloy Capital. Goldman Sachs recently enlisted this firm to invest US$50 million into Mexican fintech Clara.
