White & Case’s Latin America practice group encompasses more than 250 lawyers, most of whom are fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese and have extensive experience living and working in Latin America. The firm supports its Latin American clients throughout its network of offices in Houston, Mexico City, Miami, New York, São Paulo and Washington, DC.
White & Case advises on the full range of Latin American cross-border transactions, and the firm has achieved a leading 'first to market' reputation across a broad range of practices, including international arbitration, capital markets, energy, infrastructure and project finance, mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, and financial restructuring and insolvency.
White & Case regularly handles a wide range of complex, high stakes and multijurisdictional legal matters arising from investigations and enforcement actions related to crimes ranging from bribery and money laundering to sanctions and securities violations and fraud. The strength of the practice is evident in the size and depth of experience of the team, with its unmatched expertise in emerging legal areas; the volume of significant deals on which the firm advises; the wide variety of countries and industries in which the firm works; and the extensive resources the firm dedicates to Latin America. White & Case opened its office in Mexico City in 1991, when the firm was authorised as the first international law firm to practice under the firm’s own name. Recognised for its longstanding relationships and experience with leading businesses, financial institutions and regulators, the firm’s lawyers in Mexico offer highly specialised and integrated services, and have been heading innovative and market-leading transactions since the firm’s inception. White & Case established its office in Brazil in 1997, making it among the first international law firms to establish a presence in that important market. The firm offers an experienced team of lawyers, all of whom are fluent in Portuguese and have substantial capabilities assisting on the New York/international law aspects of some of the largest and most complex high-profile debt and equity capital markets offerings, corporate, structured and project financings, and acquisition and joint venture transactions involving Brazilian parties.
No other international law firm has greater depth-of-bench and on-the-ground experience in Latin America today.
