Deal of the Year Award nominations close today!
Today is the last day that you can submit nominations for Latin Lawyer's annual Deal of the Year Awards. Read on to find out how to make sure your most impressive deals of 2023 will be up for consideration.
Every year Latin Lawyer gives awards to general counsel and law firms that have advised on the most significant deals of the year across Latin America. This year we will select winning deals in 11 different categories.
Nominations across each of the categories can be made here. The deadline for entries is close of business today, Wednesday 7 February. Please note this is a strict deadline and extensions cannot be given.
The Deal of the Year awards will be presented to winners at our awards ceremony, which will take place in São Paulo on 9 May 2024 and is held in aid of clearinghouses across the region.
We will announce shortlists for each category in our daily news briefing, 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
- Corporate finance: ESG
- Private equity
- Regulatory matter
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 2023 and 31 December 2023 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.)
