  • "I must comment that the Hernández team is totally involved in transactions, not only at the associate level, but at the partner level. This is not common in other firms with which I have worked, where participation is limited to associates/senior associates with the partner without major involvement. In addition to the involvement, the speed and efficiency to meet deadlines is something that clearly differentiates Hernández from other firms. They can meet tight schedules impressively. Finally, the knowledge of complex subjects such as acquisition financing, energy financing, project financing is of the highest level.”
