Who's Who Legal Mexico - Construction & Real Estate

Vanessa specialises in real estate finance and investment, projects and project finance, energy, structured finance, financing of public entities and M&A. She has particularly strong experience in financing and investments in the hospitality sector as part of a wide real estate practice that also covers the retail, residential and industrial markets. Her hospitality work includes advising on investments in hotels, mega-developments, fractional and timeshare regimes, as well as their related financing.

Vanessa is also an expert in projects and public-private partnerships, including energy and infrastructure projects. She was instrumental in implementing the PPS scheme in Mexico, advising both the national government and the government of the state of Mexico on the structuring, bidding and implementation of the first PPS projects, and has since been involved in major hospital, road, water, and prison PPP projects. Vanessa has also advised clients on the preparation of unsolicited proposals and bids under the Mexican PPP law.

Her international experience is substantial and she is fluent in English. She regularly advises multinational and national clients, particularly major hotel, tourism and leisure groups, on real estate investments and development in Mexico, as well as in forming bidding consortiums and other aspects of infrastructure and energy projects in Mexico. She also advises financial institutions participating in tourism, energy, and infrastructure.

Vanessa has advised LCA Capital in many real estate transactions. She provides ongoing advice to Marriott and FibraHotel, a Mexican real estate investment trust, in its multiple business class hotel acquisitions. She also advised the Ministry of Transport and Communications on various road concessions and project restructurings and has advised GIA+A on various infrastructure transactions.

Vanessa is ranked in Chambers and Partners – Latin America, in band one for projects and band two for real estate. The guide describes her as a key partner who is “highly praised by clients” and who impresses clients with her "friendly and helpful" manner. She is recognised as "a hugely capable lawyer who always thinks of a solution rather than a problem." Vanessa obtained her LLM from the University of Chicago Law School, having graduated as an attorney from ITAM in Mexico with honours.

WWL says: Vanessa Franyutti Johnstone is a highly regarded figure in the Mexican market who is commended by sources for her strong expertise in the financing of real estate projects from hotels to major developments.
