D Magazine Names Rafael Alvarado to 2022 Best Lawyers Under 40 List

D Magazine has named Vinson & Elkins senior associate Rafael Alvarado to its 2022 “Best Lawyers Under 40” list, honoring outstanding young lawyers in North Texas.

D Magazine editors solicit nominations from lawyers across North Texas by asking them which lawyers under 40 they’d like to see ranked. After votes are tallied, a panel of esteemed lawyers work with the magazine’s staff to evaluate the nominees and determine honorees.

Alvarado’s practice focuses on the representation of financial institutions and corporate borrowers in a wide range of commercial lending transactions. He has assisted clients with domestic and international transactions, including syndicated credit facilities, senior and subordinate credit facilities, energy loans, acquisition financings and other leveraged financings. His recent experience includes the representation of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. in a $2.0 billion reserve-based credit facility to a public E&P company. This is Alvarado’s second consecutive year to be named among “Best Lawyers Under 40.”

The complete “Best Lawyers Under 40” list will be featured in the January 2022 issue of D Magazine.
