Latin America - McDermott Will & Emery

Latin America


Latin America is a region rich in complexity: Each country is distinguished by its own mix of industries, political and legal systems, natural resources, and economic and social forces. Drawing on our experience in every country in the region, we can help you identify and address rapidly changing legal and market developments, take swift, comprehensive action to protect your investments and optimize your long-term market position.

Members of our Latin America Practice bring decades of experience counseling multinational corporations, private equity funds, financial service firms and high-net-worth individuals. With your most important domestic and cross-border business and investment objectives in mind, we keep a close eye on legal, regulatory and business developments across the hemisphere, including those resulting from the recent global economic downturn. Our ongoing analysis of situations on the ground provide you with critical insights and creative solutions for navigating tax regimes, trade policies, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement, privacy and data security concerns, private equity and venture capital opportunities, employment issues and more.
