We offer clients across Latin America extensive knowledge in relevant substantive areas that is shaped by a deep understanding of the region and its culture, and gained through 40+ years of experience. For clients outside the region, we provide strategic counsel on opportunities in the fast-growing markets in Latin America. Many of our lawyers are native or fluent Spanish and Portuguese speakers, and a number of them trained under both Latin American civil law and US common law legal systems. These skills help us fully understand our clients’ goals and needs and better comprehend the economic, political, social, and cultural environment in which their businesses are conducted. Our understanding of Latin America provides insightful and practical strategic advice beyond the legal technicalities of our clients’ matters.
