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 12th annual dinner will be held on Thursday, 19 April 2018, where the winners will be announced on the night. Ticket information is available by emailing

Shortlists 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.

Nominations can be made here. If you require a PDF of the questions to help you prepare in advance, please click here.

The seven categories are as follows:

• Mergers and acquisitions
• Project finance
• Corporate finance
• Disputes
• Restructuring
• Private equity
• Regulatory

Deals must have closed between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017, 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.
