Mayer Brown and Tauil & Chequer Advogados, in association with Mayer Brown, have been named “Recommended Firms” in the 2016 edition of the Latin Lawyer 250, the definitive guide to the leading business law firms of Latin America. The guide is based on editorial research involving visits to law firms and face-to-face interviews with clients in 18 Latin American countries, as well as in the United States, Canada and Europe; thousands of questionnaires completed by corporate counsel; and a poll of legal practitioners operating in Latin America.

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” and has an “enviable oil and gas team in Houston” with “solid finance expertise from New York and Chicago.” The publication also reported 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.” Latin Lawyer also noted that Mayer Brown opened a Mexico City office in 2015 to serve clients operating and investing in the oil, gas and power industries in Mexico.

Tauil & Chequer was listed as a “Recommended Firm” in the Brazil law firm category. Latin Lawyer said that while Tauil & Chequer “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 an “international style and quality permeates Tauil & Chequer’s day-to-day work.”
