CMS has steadily grown its presence in Latin America over the past decade. In January 2017 we added to our well-established offices in Brazil and Mexico three new CMS member firms in Chile, Colombia and Peru.
Our offices across five of the most important economies in Latin America collaborate through a CMS regional committee to provide clients with consistent, integrated coverage throughout these jurisdictions.
All of the CMS Latin America offices have prominent Corporate/M&A practices. Our lawyers have extensive experience in corporate and commercial law, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures, serving clients in financial institutions, energy, infrastructure, real estate & construction, TMT, hotels & leisure and other sectors. We provide much more than just technical legal services, advising on market practice, negotiating positions and risk assessment and mitigation.
With the incorporation of the new firms, CMS’ expertise will be deepened and expanded, both in Latin America and worldwide.
Most Latin American economies have long been driven by the energy and natural resources sectors, but have been slow to make necessary investments in infrastructure projects. The picture has begun to change over recent years, as many Latin American countries have launched major investment programmes to deal with the infrastructure deficit and serve a growing middle class.
CMS Latin America Corporate/M&A, Energy, Mining & Projects Brochure covers the six CMS Latin American offices, their awards, experience and contacts.
