It’s no secret that many of Latin America’s largest companies remain controlled by small, concentrated groups reluctant to relinquish control, limiting these entities’ ability to tap into a bigger pool of resources through the capital markets. This status quo makes public M&A deals a rarity in the region. Christina McKeon Frutuoso considers the challenges faced by lawyers when such transactions do arise.
The 2019 Latin Lawyer Elite firms are profiled here. Each have carved out their own paths towards excellence and demonstrate unique areas of strength.
For a law firm to be more than a short-lived success, it must be able to guarantee its survival with each handover between different generations of partners. The managing partners of Elite firms reveal how they prepare ahead of time to contend with the reality of partner succession.
