I am very happy and excited to be part of the Gardere Team. I am enjoying the new challenges that I am facing. I have reached goals and objectives that I had never thought I could reach since we are in Mexico City. I value the team I work with very much. We have obtained a very important achievement as a firm in Mexico, and I am proud to say that I have made new friends in the U.S. I look forward to continue working with my new team in the U.S., and I am honored that they have made Mexico part of their family.

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
