Four partners in Latham & Watkins’ Latin America Practice have been named to the 2015 “Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers” list by Latinvex. Roderick Branch, Christopher Cross, Tony Del Pino and Fernando Mantilla-Serrano were selected by the Latinvex editorial staff as among leading attorneys from international law firms that are involved in the legal business in Latin America.
“Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers” includes lawyers from both major and boutique firms and spans six major categories—arbitration & litigation, banking & finance, capital markets, corporate/M&A, energy and project finance—as well as other specialties, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The Latham partners were recognized in the following categories:
• Roderick Branch – Capital markets; energy
• Christopher Cross – Corporate/M&A; project finance
• Tony Del Pino – Banking & finance; corporate/M&A; project finance
• Fernando Mantilla-Serrano – Arbitration & litigation
Messrs. Branch, Cross, Del Pino and Mantilla-Serrano earned this recognition as a result of a combination of factors, including their recent track records of major deals and business, prominence of the firm in Latin America and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.
