Guyana law firm becomes member of Houston-based Lex Mundi


Houston-based Lex Mundi said on Monday its Board of Directors voted unanimously to admit Hughes, Fields & Stoby as its exclusive member firm for Guyana.

Lex Mundi is a global leading network of independent law firms with in-depth experience in over 100 countries.

Founded in 1972, Hughes, Fields & Stoby is the largest premiere full-service law firm in Guyana. The firm has more than 45 years of combined international oil and gas experience and also has considerable experience advising clients on securities, mergers and acquisitions, maritime law, insurance and reinsurance, mining law, energy law, aviation law, environmental law, tax, immigration law, intellectual property, and estate administration, and doing business in Guyana.

Local and international clients of Hughes, Fields & Stoby include international corporations, oil and gas majors, banks and leading commercial houses in Guyana and the Caribbean.

Nigel Hughes, Managing Partner of Hughes, Fields & Stoby, stated, “Our Lex Mundi membership will enhance our ability to serve our clients and contribute to their success. We look forward to working with Lex Mundi’s outstanding member firms around the world.”

Helena Samaha, President of Lex Mundi, commented, “We are pleased to welcome this outstanding firm to our network. With the addition of Hughes Fields and Stoby, Lex Mundi strengthens its presence in Latin America and underscores its commitment to provide its member firms and their clients access to the most experienced and most highly regarded counsel around the world.”

Hughes, Fields and Stoby opened its law office in Houston last year to guide clients through what could be a complex process of establishing business relationships in Guyana, as the South American country prepares to become a significant oil producer in the region.
