Mr Ramos’ practice focuses on oil, gas, and energy transactions as well as infrastructure and project development matters in the USA and throughout Latin America. He counsels clients in the upstream, midstream, oilfield services and renewable energy sectors regarding acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, and a wide-range of investments and commercial agreements.

Villarreal said: “Alfredo’s expertise in domestic oil, gas, and energy coupled with his extensive Latin American energy experience will be of great value to our clients. Our comprehensive, highly ranked oil, gas, and energy practice has advised clients worldwide."

Previously, Mr. Ramos served as Latin America Operations Legal Director and in-house counsel for Lewis Energy, where he drafted, negotiated, managed, and administered the company’s oil and gas acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, and operative agreements, as well as managed Lewis Energy’s Texas litigation matters.
