Last chance to nominate for Latin Lawyer Deal of the Year 2019

The deadline to submit nominations for Latin Lawyer Deal of the Year 2019 is close of business today. Read on to find out how to submit your winning deals.

Every year Latin Lawyer gives awards to general counsel and law firms advising on the most significant deals of the year across Latin America. This year we will be selecting winning 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 Thursday 7 May 2020 at Hotel Unique. Ticket information is available by emailing llevents@latinlawyer.com.

The deadline for entries is close of business on Friday 24 January 2020. Please note this is a strict deadline and extensions cannot be given.

We will announce shortlists for each category in our daily news briefing in early 2020, with winners announced on the night of the awards. 

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 – as well as more information on the types of deals we consider under each category – is available here.

Deals must have closed between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2019 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 or 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 ll-briefing@latinlawyer.com with any questions you may have.
