Covington Named Latin Lawyer Deal of the Year Winner

Latin America

Covington’s practice in Latin America draws on a dedicated team of lawyers and advisors who are experienced in dealing with local legal institutions, business practices, and governments. We have the language and cultural skills to service clients operating and investing in the region.

Our Focus in Latin America

Our Latin America practice focuses on Corporate, International Arbitration, Anti-Corruption/FCPA, and Public Policy matters. We routinely collaborate with Covington colleagues on matters requiring regulatory expertise or knowledge of cutting-edge fields of practice to solve our clients most complex problems.

Robust Track-Record

Our accomplishments in Latin America include winning one of the largest ever investment-treaty awards and representing Fortune 500 companies in high-profile arbitrations, to working on transactions that have been widely recognized, including by The American Lawyer as “Dealmakers of the Year” for 2020 and LatinFinance as “Private Equity Deal of the Year” for 2020. We also have helped clients solve complex business problems by engaging with policy makers in the United States and numerous countries in Latin America.

Our practice has consistently been ranked by leading publications, including Chambers, The Legal 500, Latin Lawyer, and Latinvex, which has placed Covington in the top ten firms for arbitration, mergers and acquisitions, anti-corruption and fraud, and the overall category for 2021.

Tri-Lingual, Multi-Cultural Team

Our lawyers are bi- or tri-lingual (English, Spanish, Portuguese) and, in some instances, have Civil Law as well as U.S. or UK legal training. Many of them were born and raised in Latin America.
