Each year, Latin Lawyer offers awards to general counsel and law firms advising on the most significant deals of the year across Latin America.
The Deal of the Year awards will be presented to winners at our annual charity awards dinner at the Hotel Unique in São Paulo. Our eleventh annual dinner will be held on Thursday, 23 March 2017, where the winners will be announced on the night. Ticket information is available by emailing LLevents@LatinLawyer.com
Short lists will be announced in February in the Latin Lawyer daily online news briefing. If you are not already signed up to receive it, you may do so here.
The deadline for entries is close of business 9 January 2017. Please note this is a strict deadline and extensions cannot be given.
The seven categories are as follows:
• Mergers and acquisitions
• Project finance
• Corporate finance
• Private equity
• Regulatory matter
Deals must have closed between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2016, and be predominantly based in Latin America (although there can be other jurisdictions involved).
Latin American firms/companies can submit one deal per category for each Latin American jurisdiction in which they have an office.
International firms/companies can submit one deal per category. (International firms' local law offices and Brazilian offices can make separate submissions, one per category.)
We look forward to receiving your nominations. Please email Vincent Manancourt with any questions you may have.
