New York partner Veronica Relea, a member of Latham’s market leading Project Development & Finance and Latin America Practices, has been named to Latinvex’s 2019 list of Latin America’s Top Female Lawyers, which recognizes the top 100 female lawyers from international law firms who are doing business in the region.
Relea, a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, has developed a robust Latin America practice advising clients on a range of complex finance transactions. She 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. Relea 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 the firm in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500.
