Global Legal Recruiting Firm Expands Clients’ International Working Relationship

“Without the expertise and commitment of Jeff Liebster and the Major, Lindsey & Africa team, the completion of this transaction would not have been possible,” said Marcelo Mello, Managing Partner, MMA Lawyers.

Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world’s leading legal search firm, today announced it successfully facilitated a cooperation agreement between two of its clients: Haynes and Boone, LLP, an international corporate law firm with offices in Texas, New York, California, Washington, D.C., and Mexico City; and MMA Lawyers of Brazil, which provides legal services multinational clientele throughout major global business centers. The firms will now each be in a better position to serve clients in Brazil, the United States, China and worldwide as a result of efforts by MLA Partner Jeffrey Liebster and Managing Directors Josh Dull and Bruce Lubin.

“Without the expertise and commitment of Jeff Liebster and the Major, Lindsey & Africa team, the completion of this transaction would not have been possible,” said Marcelo Mello, Managing Partner, MMA Lawyers. “We are eternally grateful to Jeff, Josh and Bruce for their professionalism, insight and tenacity.”     

Under this new arrangement, Haynes and Boone clients with interests in Brazil will benefit from the experience of MMA with its vibrant energy base and growing trade links to Texas, and players from around the world doing business in the region. MMA’s clients, meanwhile, will enjoy the many advantages of access to the breadth and depth of the Haynes and Boone’s U.S. and international platform.

“The identification of this opportunity was a direct result of Bruce and Josh’s involvement in the Brazilian and Latin America legal markets, coupled with Major, Lindsey & Africa’s relationships in, and knowledge of the global legal community,” said Jeff Liebster, who is based in MLA’s New York office. “We are so pleased that MLA was able to identify a successful business strategy and help both clients achieve their individual and mutual goals.”

The cooperation agreement will allow MMA and Haynes and Boone partners to work together closely, although the firms will remain independent.

“We worked closely with Major, Lindsey & Africa for many months as they sourced this opportunity and saw us through the entire process,” said Cristiano Travassos, Partner of MMA Lawyers. “Their guidance was instrumental in creating this cooperation agreement.”
