Firm Overview:
Milbank LLP has one of the longest tenures of any US law firm doing business in Latin America, representing clients throughout the region since the 1920s. That experience — decades ahead of most other firms — propelled the firm to what is now one of the dominant practices in Latin America. The firm is recognised for having top-tier practices in every country in the region and with more than 50 attorneys in the US and São Paulo offices fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese, Milbank seamlessly supports clients across jurisdictions and sectors. Its lawyers understand the complex interplay of legal, regulatory and economic issues in Latin America.

Main Areas of Practice:

Corporate:
Milbank’s mergers and acquisitions practice, one of the core components of the firm’s global corporate practice, provides knowledgeable and experienced external mergers and acquisitions legal support. Some of the world’s most recognisable public companies turn to Milbank for trusted advice on structuring, negotiating, documenting and closing complicated and innovative mergers and acquisitions transactions across various sectors in Latin America (and globally), and Milbank regularly represents all the key participants in advising on joint ventures/strategic alliances and majority/minority investments, negotiated mergers, and contested transactions.

Capital Markets:
Milbank continues to be uniquely positioned to seamlessly advise on high-profile and ‘first-of-its-kind’ cross-border financings and regularly advise the leading players throughout Latin America. The capital markets team is widely recognised for its technical excellence, breadth of experience, commercial approach, imaginative problem solving and ability to close complex deals. The team’s clients include issuers, underwriters, initial purchasers, placement agents, institutional and individual investors, selling shareholders and those providing credit support through guarantees, surety bonds and letters of credit.

Finance & Commercial Banking:
Milbank represents banks and other institutional investors in a wide array of large-ticket financing transactions, covering acquisition finance, leveraged buyout finance, debt restructurings and workouts, trade finance, cross-border financing transactions, debt arbitrage and equity investments by financial institutions.

Financial Restructuring:
Milbank is recognised for its expertise in connection with the largest, most complex bankruptcies and reorganisations. The firm represents companies needing financial restructuring, creditor committees, financial institutions and hedge funds, lenders, equity security holders, acquirers, trustees and receivers. Milbank has been involved in some of the most high profile and complex restructuring matters in the world including representing stakeholders of Latin American companies such as Satélites Mexicanos S.A. de C.V., Vitro, and Gruma.

Project, Energy & Infrastructure Finance:
Milbank is one of the world’s leading cross-border energy and infrastructure legal advisors, with particularly strong experience in Latin America. Its global practice — which focuses on power (renewables and conventional), oil/gas and transportation infrastructure (airports, roads, ports) — is consistently recognised in each country in Latin America where energy and infrastructure transactions occur. Milbank represents the leading players, including debt providers, private equity investors, private sponsors and government lenders, in many of their most important and high-profile projects. Milbank has been awarded “International Projects Law Firm of the Year” by Chambers Latin America six times in recent years.

International Litigation/Arbitration:
Milbank represents clients across the spectrum of business disputes arising from mergers and acquisitions, proxy battles, international and domestic financings, corporate restructurings, securities offerings, class action defense and real estate workouts. Milbank retains significant knowledge and experience in the resolution of claims of expropriation and other international disputes between states and foreign investors and international arbitration proceedings conducted before major international institutions, including the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the United Nations Commission for International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).

Languages:
Milbank has multilingual capabilities including English, Portuguese and Spanish at both the partner and associate levels, as well as the cultural and commercial fluency that the most complex international matters require.
