Latin America is a key region for the firm, where we have been operating for over two decades. In the past five years, we have dramatically expanded our local capabilities and currently have a local team of around 125 professionals in four offices: Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

Our teams across the region advise on all areas of business law, applying a sectoral approach and covering all types of industries. They work seamlessly and use the synergies between offices to provide our clients with comprehensive domestic and cross-border advice.
