Latinvex singles out the top foreign lawyers in Latin America.
BY LATINVEX STAFF
The editorial staff of Latinvex has selected the leading attorneys from international law firms that are involved in the legal business in Latin America.
The ranking includes attorneys from major firms as well as boutique firms and spans six major categories (arbitration & litigation, banking & finance, capital markets, corporate/M&A, energy and project finance) as well as other specialties, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
The criteria used was a combination of factors, including recent track record on major deals and business, prominence of firm in Latin America and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.
This year, a quarter of the ranking – 25 attorneys – were new compared with last year’s list.
