Strategic and Synergistic Business and Family Law Counsel
Senior Associate Attorney
"As the son of an immigrant business owner, I saw my father struggle to navigate his small business through situations with adverse results that could have been mitigated or avoided with the advice of counsel. Now, I strive to be a resource and an advisor to other Hispanic business owners."
Solutions for Unique Concerns of Cross-Border Businesses
Daniel's role as an outside general counsel has given him experience in a wide array of transactions, from the acquisition of a sizable oil field services companies to entity creation for small startups, Daniel has proven that he can accomplish his clients' goals. His clients benefit from the diversity of his experiences in niche or cross-industry problems. Companies' legal needs are complex, and Daniel excels in this complexity due to his breadth of experiences.
Many of Daniel's clients are Latin American businesses or families looking for investment opportunities or to transition their business to the US. Daniel's highly coveted experience in the corporate office of PEMEX in Mexico and with federal judges in largely Hispanic border regions of Texas, combined with his own bicultural background, allows him to connect with clients from Mexico or Latin America and relate to their particular cross-border needs and concerns as they seek business, investment, or real-estate opportunities in the US.
Legal Structures for Long-term Success
Transitioning from an emerging company to a high-growth company entails logistical and legal challenges. This transition's quick pace sometimes becomes an obstacle to a long-term strategic approach to business success. As a Collaborative Business Counsel, Daniel provides strategies and solutions to manage the legal needs of this transition efficiently. He handles contracts, acquisitions, and investments and coordinates cohesively with a network of professionals to meet these needs. With Daniel behind the details, business owners can reclaim their time for what matters most-their business's continued success.
Relational and Efficient Communication
Daniel strives for clear, efficient communication, actively listening to the clients' goals, and working diligently to accomplish those goals. He also appreciates the ongoing advisory relationships with clients that the firm cultivates. He devotes his full attention to the tasks at hand, with an objective, balanced attitude that allows him to calmly adapt to the diverse set of challenges that come with inter-industry and international work.
