The winners of Latin Lawyer’s 12th annual Deal of the Year Awards were revealed at a charity dinner in São Paulo last night, in the presence of 240 leading names of the Latin American legal community.
The last few years have been slow for Colombia: in 2017 GDP grew by just 1.6%, its worst performance since 2009. 2018 promises an improvement, with the World Bank predicting the economy will grow by nearly 3%, above the Latin American average. This is welcome news for the country’s corporate law firms, which are licking their lips at the prospect of an uptick in deal flow. The construction and natural resources industries look to be the most likely font for the increase in work, which will suit the many firms in this chapter that are already highly experienced in project finance and infrastructure work, particularly thanks to Colombia’s US$70 billion Fourth Generation (4G) toll road building programme.
Latin Lawyer is very pleased to name Alfredo Lewin of Colombia’s Lewin & Wills Abogados as the winner of our Specialist Law Firm Leader Award this year.
