Working as a corporate counsel in Latin America can often require a very specific set of skills. While local GCs share key concerns with their colleagues around the globe including regulatory hurdles, cybersecurity and data protection issues, they are also often faced with fundamental political and economic structural risks, not to mention the regional challenges of operating across multiple jurisdictions– all of which make it a unique place to do business. Drawing on extensive research conducted by CMS on GCs in today’s Latin America, this session will discuss some of the specific challenges and opportunities facing counsel in the region, including best practices in managing sub-regional clusters, overcoming regulatory barriers and cultural differences and other key topics.

Session led by:
Jonathan Warne, CMS Legal
