Latinvex Names Ropes & Gray One of Top Law Firms in Latin America for 2021
Latinvex has again 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. To create these rankings, Latinvex editorial and research staff analyzed 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.
In the past year, Latinvex named litigation and enforcement partners Ama Adams, Maria Gonzalez Calvet and Colleen Conry among the top 100 female lawyers in Latin America, and named Colleen, asset management partner Matt Posthuma, and litigation and enforcement partner Nick Berg among the top 100 international lawyers in Latin America.
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.
