Latin America and the Caribbean

Our Latin America team advises both Latin American corporations and foreign investors on a broad range of legal areas. We work with local law firms throughout the region to provide high-quality, co-ordinated advice based on extensive international experience and local knowledge.

Team members have broad experience working within Latin America’s legal and political systems. They also have an understanding of its diverse cultures and speak Spanish and Portuguese, including Brazilian Portuguese.

Our multinational group includes common law and civil law lawyers (including lawyers trained in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, the UK, the US and Venezuela) who match advice on both systems of law with a full understanding of the Latin American context.

International disputes

In international disputes involving the region, we can therefore combine the arbitration knowledge and resources of the world’s number one arbitration practice with this regional experience and linguistic ability.

We have Latin America covered – the Freshfields team has represented clients across the whole of the Latin America region including advising on matters in Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela.

By bringing together the resources of our Latin America teams in London, Madrid, New York, Paris and Washington DC with the knowledge in all our offices worldwide, we have the strength to provide clients with an outstanding level of service on Latin America transactions and disputes. That is why we’re one of an exclusive group of global law firms whose Latin America practice is recommended in the international section of Latin Lawyer 250.
