Latin Lawyer collected data on M&A, debt capital markets and equity capital markets activity across Latin America during 2020. We present a series of league table reports and comparative analysis for key markets, revealing the busiest firms in these areas by total deal volume and value. The league tables are accompanied by deal reports containing all deals that took place in 2020 and were submitted to Latin Lawyer, upon which we have based our findings.
Debt capital markets activity rose in Argentina, Chile and Colombia during the first half of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019, according to data collected by Latin Lawyer – while Peru saw a drop in the number of these deals and Brazil experienced a shift in favour of the equity capital markets.
M&A activity in Latin America’s biggest two markets during the first half of 2020 was consistent with 2019 levels, according to data collected by Latin Lawyer, while Colombia and Peru saw a decrease.
