Americas

Our lawyers are fully immersed in the world in which you operate. Whether you are based in North or South America or expanding your business to another region, we deliver legal expertise to support your commercial ambitions.

Recent years have seen an increase in both the number of foreign companies seeking to grow their business interests in Latin America and the global expansion of Latin American clients around the globe. If you are seeking to invest within the Americas, our teams can guide you through your most challenging legal issues.

Your partner in Latin America 

For clients in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa, the linkage of our offices in five of Latin America’s most dynamic economies – Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru –  means your business in Latin America can be supported by a team of local contacts and over 220 lawyers on the ground who speak your language and know the jurisdictions. 

We are one of the few global full-service firms in Latin America that can offer you high quality local expertise in a full range of practice areas and a consistent and highly integrated service across all jurisdictions, working as a one team on cross-border matters. We combine deep sectoral knowledge and experience with expertise in the legal areas such as real estate, project finance, corporate/M&A, tax, administrative, dispute resolution, compliance, environmental and employment law.

We are recognised as leaders in key sectors, including energy, mining, infrastructure, banking and finance, agribusiness, hotels and leisure, life sciences and TMT, among others. 

We work with key players that are shaping business in Latin America, including national and multinational industry leaders and government agencies, as well as with key stakeholders in North America. This means we are able to cover your needs across the whole continent. The diverse approach comes from our position as one of the largest law firms worldwide.
