Four Partners Recognized as Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers of 2021 by Latinvex
Asset management partner Matt Posthuma and litigation & enforcement partners Nick Berg, María González Calvet, and Colleen Conry have been named Latin America's Top 100 Lawyers of 2021 by Latinvex, recognizing Matt in the Capital Markets category and Nick, María and Colleen in the FCPA & Fraud category. In compiling its list of top attorneys, Latinvex evaluated a number of factors, including an attorney’s recent track record handling major matters, the attorney’s prominence in Latin America, and recognition from third parties including Chambers and Legal 500.
Earlier this year, Latinvex ranked Ropes & Gray among the top international law firms in Latin America, increasing the firm’s overall ranking to 11th out of more than 100 international law firms in its annual ranking. The firm also made strides in subcategories, ranking 1st for Tax; 3rd for Aviation; 4th for FCPA, Fraud & Investigations; 6th for Real Estate; and 13th for Corporate/M&A. Ropes & Gray received new rankings this year in the Labor and Trade & Sanctions subcategories.
Additionally, in January, Latinvex published an article profiling Ropes & Gray’s Latin America practice. 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.
