Cleary Gottlieb’s Latin America practice is a recognized leader in the international legal community in number, novelty, and difficulty of the transactions on which it advises. Given our regional focus and deep bench, we are at the forefront of the market in Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and other growing markets.
We have a long history as a project finance pioneer with extensive experience in many large and precedent-setting projects throughout the world. We cover a wide range of domestic and international transactions, and help our clients in the financing and structuring of the most complex projects. Our lawyers have extensive experience with projects in many sectors and have represented parties on every side of these transactions—leading project sponsors, lenders, equipment suppliers, infrastructure funds, insurers, public sector entities, and rating agencies. Most importantly, we never lose sight of the fact that a project financing will fail to achieve its essential purpose if the structural rigor inherent in the approach does not also leave enough flexibility to accommodate the operational needs of the business. In 2015, we received recognition as a “Project Finance Practice Group of the Year” by Law360, and received various Deals of the Year awards by leading publications for our work in project finance and infrastructure transactions.
