For the seventh consecutive year, Mayer Brown and Tauil & Chequer (T&C) in association with Mayer Brown have been named “Recommended Firms” in the 2020 edition of the Latin Lawyer 250, the definitive guide to the leading business law firms of Latin America.
Mayer Brown was listed as a “Recommended Firm” in the International law firm category. Latin Lawyer said the firm successfully applied its leading project finance, energy, M&A and banking and finance practice to carve out a dominant share of the market for those services in Latin America. According to the publication, Mayer Brown lawyers have a deep knowledge of the region’s energy and infrastructure sectors. Latin Lawyer also highlighted Mayer Brown’s impressive talent and client relationships that have helped the firm remain a key player in the region and provide a good base for future growth.
T&C was listed as a “Recommended Firm” in the Brazil law firm category. With its aggressive lateral hiring, Latin Lawyer said that “no other Brazilian firm has grown as aggressively or as assuredly as this in the past few years.” T&C lawyers are attracted not only by higher gains but by the prospect of developing an international career. The firm provides its lawyers unique opportunities abroad, as well as the cultural exchange of frequently working with international peers.
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, Asia and Europe; thousands of questionnaires completed by corporate counsel; and a poll of legal practitioners operating in Latin America. Latin Lawyer is a leading source of news and analysis for private practitioners and in-house counsel in Latin America’s business legal market.
