Mayer Brown and Tauil & Chequer Advogados, in association with Mayer Brown, have been named “Recommended Firms” in the 2015 edition of the Latin Lawyer 250, the definitive guide to the leading business law firms of Latin America. The guide is based on results from Latin Lawyer’s poll of legal practitioners operating in Latin America; on-the-ground editorial research involving visits to law firms and face-to-face interviews with clients in all 18 Latin American countries covered, as well as in the United States, Canada and Europe; and thousands of questionnaires completed by corporate counsel.
Mayer Brown was listed as a “Recommended Firm” in the International law firm category. Latin Lawyer noted that Mayer Brown “services a wide range of clients in the region” due to the firm’s “renowned excellence in project finance across the board,” “enviable oil and gas team in Houston” and “solid finance expertise from New York and Chicago.” The publication also said that the firm’s “key talent and client relationships—and a continuing deal list—ensure it remains a player in the region” and provide “a good base for future growth.”
Tauil & Chequer was listed as a “Recommended Firm” in the Brazil law firm category. Latin Lawyer said that while T&C “retains a great deal of strength in natural resources,” it has “built itself into a noted full-service firm, with highly regarded finance and M&A areas within a strong and broad offer.” The publication also noted that T&C’s “international outlook has also made it much better at taking advantage of the new flow of work between Brazil and Africa than most [other firms] in this list.”
Latin Lawyer is a leading business law resource for Latin America. The publication provides news and analysis of deals and cases, as well as legal and policy developments across the region. It also compiles surveys, league tables, country profiles, interviews and roundtable discussions.
