On January 27, Latinvex published an article profiling Ropes & Gray’s Latin America practice, and featured partners Nick Berg, María González Calvet, Matt Posthuma, Alex Rene, Colleen Conry, Ama Adams, Ryan Rohlfsen and Sarah Schaffer Raux. The article highlighted the firm’s growing presence and work in Latin America, including how Ropes & Gray is actively involved in some of Latin America’s largest deals; routinely conducts pre- and post-acquisition anti-corruption diligence for portfolio company targets; and serves as the primary anti-corruption counsel for several large, multinational private equity firms for their global transactions.

The article notes that in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this team has successfully innovated in order to stay connected with its clients in the region. They launched Cafecito con Ropes & Gray, a casual virtual roundtable for clients and others covering a range anti-bribery and anti-corruption concerns for businesses operating in Latin America during the pandemic. Participants have appreciated the opportunity to hear from Ropes & Gray attorneys across practice groups as they navigate the uncertainty of the past year.
