Latham & Watkins has been named again in 2019 to Latin Lawyer magazine’s Latin Lawyer 250, a guide detailing the leading business law firms of Latin America.
In the guide, Latham’s Latin America Practice is recognized for the firm’s “dominant position in the region by effectively balancing the benefits that come from global reach with a deep understanding of Latin American legal frameworks and cultures,” while also praising the firm’s reputation for “exceptionally high dedication to their clients.”
While the firm’s client service and regional savvy earned praise, Latin Lawyer 250 also highlights several industry defining deals led by Latham’s Latin America Practice throughout the past year, including advising:
- Digital Realty in its US$1.8 billion acquisition of Ascenty, a leading data center provider in Brazil
- IEnova, Mexico’s largest private-sector energy company by market capitalization, in its inaugural bond offering on the international capital markets
- Promecap, a leading Mexican private equity firm, in the global IPO of the first-ever Mexico-focused SPAC to list on the Mexican Stock Exchange
- Telefónica in the sale of their Central American operations, including two transactions with an enterprise value of US$2.29 billion
The Latin Lawyer 250 guide is compiled by Latin Lawyer’s editorial team, utilizing 20 years of experience and factoring in notable deals, key practice strengths, as well as comments made by corporate counsel regarding the considered firms.
