Latin America


Large corporations, private equity sponsors and banks in Latin America entrust us with a wide range of critical transactions and litigation matters.


We have actively represented clients in the region since the 1960s, and our lawyers have in-depth knowledge of regional business practices and regulatory requirements. Our work covers areas including capital markets, finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, joint ventures, restructuring and international dispute resolution.

We deliver the world-class legal advice our clients need, with a team that includes nine partners resident in São Paulo and New York. Our lawyers, most of whom are fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese, serve clients in countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

The time-tested relationships that we have built with some of the largest Latin American companies are a testament to our skillful work on some of the most critical, complicated and first-of-their-kind transactions in the region and beyond.


“Davis Polk & Wardwell is an excellent firm, both in terms of the technical and professional quality of the lawyers who work with us and the availability and speed with which they return to us.”
