Continuing aggressive Texas growth, Paul Hastings has hired another Vinson & Elkins partner in Texas—trial and regulatory enforcement partner Manuel Berrelez in Dallas.

Berrelez, who joined Paul Hastings as a partner on Tuesday, arrives shortly after a group of 25 finance lawyers from Vinson & Elkins, including eight partners, moved to Paul Hastings in March in Houston and Dallas. In conjunction with the hirings, the firm launched the Dallas office.
