Three Partners Recognized as Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers by Latinvex
Asset management partner Matt Posthuma and litigation & enforcement partners Colleen Conry and Nick Berg have been named Latin America’s Top 100 Lawyers of 2019 by Latinvex, recognizing Mr. Posthuma in capital markets and Ms. Conry and Mr. Berg in FCPA & Fraud categories. 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. 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.
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."
