Before joining Norton Rose Fulbright, for more than sixteen years, Mr. González has worked in two of the leading firms in Mexico city specializing in energy and infrastructure projects as well as project finance, where he participated in several transactions, both public and private, including projects launched by state-owned Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and Pemex relating to power and oil and gas matters.  In particular, Mr. Gonzalez participated in several power generation projects under different modalities, including independent power production, self-use and cogeneration.  With respect to Pemex, Mr. González participated in many projects launched by Pemex exploration under the Public Financed Works program E&P, drilling and multiple service contracts.
