Partners Claudia Salomon and Veronica Relea, both members of the firm’s Latin America Practice, have been named to Latinvex’s 2018 list of Latin America’s Top 100 Female Lawyers, which recognizes the top international female lawyers doing business in the region.
Salomon, Global Co-Chair of Latham’s International Arbitration Practice, has acted as lead counsel in significant international commercial arbitration and investor treaty arbitration cases under all of the major arbitral rules, in venues around the globe, under common law and civil law, with a focus on the energy, construction, and technology sectors. She is particularly adept at post M&A and joint venture disputes. Salomon is experienced handling litigation in connection with arbitration, including preliminary measures, attachment, and enforcement proceedings. She also regularly serves as an arbitrator and has experience as sole arbitrator, emergency arbitrator, and on a three-arbitrator tribunal.
Relea, a member of Latham’s Project Development & Finance Practice, represents commercial and investment banks, sponsors, developers, and private equity firms in connection with the development, construction, operation, and financing of energy, oil and gas, and infrastructure projects (including LNG projects, fuel storage facilities, renewable energy assets, and mining assets). She also has extensive experience in leveraged finance transactions, including acquisition financings, asset-based facilities, private equity transactions, mezzanine facilities, and cross-border financings.
Latinvex’s criteria for selection to the Top 100 Female Lawyers list includes a combination of factors, such as recent track record on major deals and business, prominence of firm in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.
