Latin Business Chronicle selects the top 30 foreign lawyers in Latin America.
BY CHRONICLE STAFF
Latin America is becoming increasingly important to international law firms. With the region’s economies outpacing those of the United States and Europe, many foreign law firms are reporting strong growth in Latin American markets, especially Brazil.
The editorial staff of Latin Business Chronicle has taken a closer look at some of the leading attorneys from international law firms that are involved in the growing legal boom in Latin America.
Our list of the top 30 includes attorneys from both large and smaller boutique firms based in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. Their expertise spans a broad range of subjects, including arbitration, banking, capital markets, energy, mining, M&A’s and taxes.
We included the attorneys based on a number of criteria, including involvement in recent prominent deals and transactions in Latin America, prominence on Latin America within their law firm, importance of their law firm in Latin America and rankings by third parties such as UK-based Chambers and Partners.
