LATAM

The LATAM Group: supporting and advising businesses in the region for over 40 years.

Our LATAM Group is made up of lawyers from all of our key practice areas (aviation, insurance, energy & offshore, corporate, financecommercial disputes and shipping), many of whom are fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. The Group’s work encompasses not only Latin America, Spain and Portugal but also Angola and Mozambique. Regular visits to the relevant regions and strong relationships with a network of leading local lawyers mean that we understand the nuances of doing business in the different jurisdictions throughout this fascinating geographical area.

We have gained invaluable experience from decades of handling cases in the region. This experience, together with our in-depth knowledge of current trends, enables us to provide first-class advice when handling commercial disputes and supporting you in your business transactions.

So, whether you are a global company operating in Colombia, a Mexican company contracting on an English law basis, or working on a project elsewhere in the region, we can help you.

Our extensive, recent work in LATAM includes advising:

>  A contractor in connection with the expansion of the Panama Canal.

>  International energy contractors -  in relation to disputes with a Brazilian shipyard regarding the repair of an offshore drilling unit.

>  Shipyards - regarding the construction of an offshore vessel for use in Brazil.

>  London-market reinsurers - in relation to insurance claims arising from various industrial, hull, P&I and cargo claims in Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico and Argentina.

>  International insurers - concerning cyber risk in Latin America including developing appropriate cyber policy wordings for the Latin American market and establishing local cyber claims handling facilities.

>  Ship interests, ports and terminals as well as their insurers - in connection with casualties throughout the LATAM region ranging from incidents in Chile, Colombia and Cuba to the high profile Prestige oil spill off Spain.
