Latin American practice
Doing business in Latin America requires a deep understanding of the region and its transactions. It is a hallmark of Walkers' practice that we provide our clients with innovative cross-practice solutions to enable them to effect business in challenging commercial and regulatory environments. We have assisted clients in Latin America over several decades, and have developed a major practice in the region as a consequence. We have long standing relationships with local and multinational corporations, major financial institutions, asset managers, family offices and local law firms and service providers throughout Latin America, advising them across all the key practice areas. We offer expertise in international capital markets, banking, asset, structured and project finance, M&A, investment funds, regulatory advice and wealth structuring. In particular, we have developed a leading reputation advising hedge fund managers and private equity sponsors on their fundraising and inward and outward bound investments implemented through offshore structures. Our clients come from across the region, including Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.
