Covington’s Gabriel Mesa Named to “Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers” List


WASHINGTON, DC, January 24, 2014 —Covington & Burling is pleased to announce that Gabriel Mesa has been named to Latinvex’s list of “Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers.”

Mr. Mesa counsels corporations in joint ventures and private mergers and acquisitions in Latin America and other emerging markets, as well as in the United States. Over the past year, he has represented clients in significant Latin American transactions including Grupo Financiero Banorte’s acquisition of Afore Bancomer in Mexico, which was recognized with LatinFinance’s 2013 “Domestic M&A Deal of the Year” award, and Sura Asset Management’s joint acquisition with Scotiabank of AFP Horizonte in Peru, which won two M&A Atlas Awards.

“We are delighted that Gabriel has received this distinction,” said Rubén Kraiem, head of the firm’s corporate practice in Latin America. “It is very well deserved and reflects the growth and enhanced profile of our practice in the region.”

Latinvex is a weekly online journal specializing in Latin America's business, legal and technology news. The “Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers” list was created by evaluating recent track records on major deals and business, prominence of the firm in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.
