WASHINGTON, D.C., September 19, 2012 -- Arnold & Porter LLP's Latin America practice is one of exceptional breadth and scope, both substantively and geographically. The firm has placed an important emphasis on and taken an active role in matters relating to Latin America, demonstrating an enduring commitment to the region. The 30-member strong Latin America practice has bolstered the firm's footprint in the region offering practice capabilities in such key areas as arbitration, litigation, sovereign finance, financing transactions, financial services, corporate transactions, bond restructuring, international trade, legislative and public policy, and public international law.
Industry watchers have taken note of Arnold & Porter's strength in the Latin America region. Most recently, three of the practice's practice areas were "Recommended" in the inaugural Legal 500: Latin America directory (2013): Banking and Finance, Capital Markets, and International Arbitration; twelve of the firm's attorneys were acknowledged in the corresponding remarks. The firm was also recently recognized in Chambers' Latin America 2013 directory in the three practice areas, with seven firm attorneys being recognized as "Leading Individuals."
