Biography • Who's Who Legal Mexico: Transport

Mr Hayaux-du-Tilly's main areas of practice include corporate, mergers and acquisitions and banking and finance. He is specialised in insurance and reinsurance, both in contentious and non-contentious matters.

Yves has been involved in aviation-related matters for many years. When Saab was a regular lessor of aircraft to Aeromexico, Yves frequently represented Saab in its day-to-day operations, including the negotiation and lease of more than 24 aircraft to Aeromexico.

Yves also has participated regularly in insurance and reinsurance-related matters involving aviation law and related risk, including advising AXA in the claim to AIG arising from the aircraft accident in which the secretary of the Interior of Mexico and other high-level officers perished.

During the first stages of insolvency of Mexicana, Yves advised and represented Aviation Capital Group in the workout and restructuring of eight aircraft lease agreements and three additional new aircraft lease agreements.

Yves also acted as expert in Mexican law in the landmark matter of Pegasus Aviation, Inc, and others as claimants (insured) and Seguros Comercial America, SA de CV as respondent, from 2006 to 2008, with work involving among other issues the construction of AVN 67B.

Yves' focus on aviation law has been always using the strength of his experience and expertise in insurance, reinsurance and financial laws, all of which have given him a strong edge to serve NHG clients in aviation-related matters.
