Our lawyers are fully immersed in the world in which you operate. Whether you are based in North or South America or expanding your European business, 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.

For clients in Europe, Asia 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 lawyers on the ground who speak your language and know the jurisdictions.

If you are seeking to invest within the Americas, our teams can guide you through your most challenging legal issues.

Our Brazil legal specialists can assist you with commercial ventures and transactions that are driving growth in the region’s largest economy. If you require international expertise in energy and natural resources, utilities and infrastructure, M&A and investments, our teams can advise on the dynamics of business between European countries and Brazil.

In Mexico, we can support your entry into the country’s liberalising energy and infrastructure markets as well as other key sectors of this rapidly changing economy.

Our 45-person team in Chile covers over 12 practice areas and 8 sectors and has received industry recognition for its transactional expertise and high-quality service.

In Peru, we have almost 100 lawyers covering over 21 practice areas including regulatory issues, transactional work and project development.

Our more than 35-person Colombia team, meanwhile, is based in both the key business centres of Bogotá and Medellín with a particular expertise in banking and finance law that is recognised throughout Latin America.

Contact us via our online form or give us a call if you are seeking experienced legal experts to help you successfully grow and expand your business interests in the Americas.
