November 13, 2018

Latinvex has again ranked Ropes & Gray among the top international law firms in Latin America. Ropes & Gray made strides in the Latinvex Top Law Firms 2019 ranking 5th for FCPA & Fraud and 14th for Corporate/M&A. Ropes & Gray also received new rankings in the Capital Markets and Real Estate categories. 

Earlier this year, Latinvex named litigation & enforcement partner Colleen Conry one of the top 100 female lawyers in Latin America, private investment funds partner Matt Posthuma one of the top 100 international lawyers in Latin America, and litigation & enforcement partner Nick Berg as Latin America’s Rising Legal Star. 

The Latinvex editorial and research staff looked at more than 100 international law firms and selected the top 50 based on a combination of factors, including value, prominence and scope of work; references among clients and peers; and the size of the firm’s Latin America practice. 

This significant achievement builds upon recent recognition for the firm’s presence in Latin America including The Legal 500 Latin America, which ranked Ropes & Gray as a leading international firm in Corporate and M&A. In addition, Chambers Latin America ranked Ropes & Gray band 3 for Corporate Crime & Investigations, recognizing litigation & enforcement partners Jim Dowden and Alex Rene as notable practitioners in the Latin America region. One client, when surveyed by Chambers, stated: "Ropes & Gray delivers a fantastic product, not just because they have great professionals, but also because they truly understand how to provide legal advice in Latin America."
