Deal of the Year 2018 nominations period closes this Friday

The nominations period for Latin Lawyer 2018 Deal of the Year Awards ends this Friday. Read on to find out how to submit your winning deals.

Each year, Latin Lawyer offers awards to general counsel and law firms advising on the most significant deals of the year across Latin America. This year – for the first time – we will be awarding deals in 10 different categories.  

The Deal of the Year awards will be presented to winners at our annual charity awards dinner, which takes place in São Paulo. The event will be held on Wednesday 10 April 2019 - at a venue to be confirmed - and winners will be announced on the night. Ticket information is available by emailing

The deadline for entries is close of business on Friday 4 January 2019. Please note this is a strict deadline and extensions cannot be given.

We will be recognising deals in the following categories:

  • Mergers and acquisitions: public companies
  • Mergers and acquisitions: private companies
  • Project finance: energy and natural resources
  • Project finance: infrastructure
  • Corporate finance: capital markets
  • Corporate finance: banking and finance
  • Disputes
  • Restructuring
  • Private equity
  • Regulatory matter

Nominations can be made here. A PDF of the questions to help you prepare in advance is available here.

Deals must have closed between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2018 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 each make separate submissions, one per category.)

We look forward to receiving your nominations. Please email Lulu Rumsey with any questions you may have.
