Last chance to nominate for Deal of the Year 2020
Today is the last day to submit nominations for our annual Deal of the Year Awards. Read on to find out how to submit your winning deals.
Every year Latin Lawyer gives awards to law firms and company general counsel advising on the most significant deals of the year across Latin America.
The deadline for entries is close of business today, Friday 22 January 2021. Please note this is a strict deadline and extensions cannot be given.
This year we will be selecting winning deals in 11 different 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
• Corporate finance: ESG
• Private equity
• Regulatory matter
Our 2020 awards includes a new category recognising sustainable investment. The new award will recognise finance and investment transactions intended to have a verifiable positive impact on the receiving entity’s environmental, social and governance performance, in reflection of a deal type that is growing in popularity in Latin America. You can read more about the guidelines for the new category here.
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: Deal of the Year 2020.
Deals must have closed between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020 and be predominantly based in Latin America (although there can be other jurisdictions involved).
Latin American firms and 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 will announce the shortlists for each category in our daily news briefing in early 2021, ahead of revealing the winners later in the year.
