As one of the first international law firms to service client interests in Latin America and the Caribbean, Mayer Brown has a deep understanding of the region and of the way that business needs to be conducted if transactions are to reach a successful conclusion. Over the past decade, we have completed hundreds of transactions in Latin America. Examples of our more recent work can be found, organized by service and region, by using the menu at the right of this page.
The lawyers in our Latin America group understand the legal and political challenges within the local landscapes and have the cultural and linguistic skills to work effectively in the region. Our clients include US and European companies and financial institutions with business interests in the region, as well as a wide range of corporations and financial institutions headquartered in Latin America and the Caribbean.
For clients who require advice on local Brazilian law issues, we work closely with our association firm in Brazil, Tauil & Chequer Advogados (T&C)
, which has offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. T&C has an outstanding reputation across a broad range of areas, including corporate, M&A, IP, real estate, tax, project finance and construction. The firm has a particularly strong presence in the energy, oil and gas, and infrastructure markets.
Most members of our Latin America/Caribbean team are fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese.
