Latin America

We partner with clients to navigate complex cross-border disputes, regulatory hurdles and transactions involving Latin America and the Caribbean. Our clients throughout the region seek our counsel on diverse areas of the law helping establish long-term investments in the region, and we work with Latin American clients who have a business interest in the United States – whether it be a customer or supplier base – or subsidiary or joint venture partner. Our clients span the globe and we help clients navigate laws, regulations, and issues by jurisdiction; resolve international disputes and litigation; and assist with both domestic and cross-border corporate and M&A transactions.

The firm works closely with its international policy and regulatory affairs affiliate, C&M International, to represent clients whose interests require the cooperation of government agencies and international organizations, including the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Asia-Pacific Economic (APEC) forum, the U.S. Office of the President, and Departments of State, Commerce, Treasury, Homeland Security, Justice and Labor, and national governments throughout the region. By using effective regional and national engagements, clients benefit through improved market access for their products and services, reduction of regulatory barriers, resolution of business impediments and market intelligence.   

Additionally, we bring cultural and political sophistication within Latin America to our work and represent clients in both English and Spanish, among other languages. We have strong relationships with local counsel across Latin America that provide strategic advice and assistance when needed. Crowell & Moring has been recognized as a Top Law firm of 2021 by Latinvex, a leading publisher of business and legal news in the region.
