About the awards

Deal of the Year

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 nomination period for Deal of the Year runs from 1 December to the end of the second week of January. Full details about the process will be provided through the Latin Lawyer briefing at that time.

 

Our Deal of the Year Awards are in the following categories:

  • Corporate Finance
  • M&A
  • Restructuring
  • Project Finance
  • Disputes
  • Regulatory
  • Private Equity

Deals and matters in the above categories which closed in the relevant calendar year will be eligible for consideration. Considerations when deciding the winner will include value, timeframe, complexity, legal creativity shown, political and regulatory sensitivity, number of jurisdictions to which the deal relates, and so on.

The full shortlist of deals nominated, and the firms which worked on them, are announced in February.

Please email briefing@latinlawyer for further information.
