© 2017 Vault.com Inc. 646 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition HAYNES AND BOONE, LLP THE SCOOP From its roots in Dallas-area corporate securities law, Haynes and Boone has expanded to a dozen offices across the U.S. and abroad. Although much of its bread and butter remains with the Texas corporate scene, Haynes and Boone has used its presence in Shanghai and Mexico City to profit from Latin American and Chinese energy deals and international trade. Like Teacher, Like Student With $1,600 and a handful of small clients, Richard Haynes opened a solo law office in Dallas in 1964 while moonlighting as a securities law seminar teacher at Southern Methodist University School of Law. After impressing Haynes as a student in his classroom, Michael Boone joined Haynes’ office when he graduated in 1967; the firm became Haynes and Boone three years later. Over the next few decades, the firm rode the wave of Dallas’ building boom, merging with other firms and opening additional offices throughout Texas. Since then, Haynes and Boone has become one of the largest law firms in the U.S., with more than 575 attorneys and has ranked as one of the highest-grossing practices in the U.S. The firm has also grown abroad and is home to attorneys from 45 states and 26 countries, who speak 26 different languages from Russian to Vietnamese. While in its early years, Haynes and Boone maintained a focus on corporate securities law, the firm has grown to 40 practice areas, including bankruptcy and business restructuring law as well as M&A. The firm touts an office culture bound by a “no jerks policy” and an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration. Both Sides of the Border In addition to its strong presence in Texas, Haynes and Boone has trickled south of the border, building a Latin American presence based out of its Mexico City office. With an extensive Latin America practice, Haynes and Boone has worked on multinational deals involving energy and natural resources, transnational M&A and international arbitration. Among its notable work is the firm’s representation of Royal Dutch Shell in its sale of portions of its business to buyers in half a dozen Central American countries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
