Ropes & Gray’s integrated global network of attorneys – including those based in U.S. offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Silicon Valley and San Francisco – focuses on solving the legal issues faced by our clients doing business across the Americas. The firm prides itself on providing sophisticated advice on all aspects of a client’s business: raising capital and attracting investors, protecting and monetizing intellectual property, buying and selling assets, merging or creating joint ventures with business partners, financing and restructuring, tax and regulatory issues, litigation disputes and government investigations.
The firm’s attorneys have successfully represented clients in milestone transactions and litigation cases in the United States that have earned the firm recognition by such independent publications as the Financial Times, The National Law Journal, U.S. News and Chambers. In Central and South America, we have advised clients on high profile matters, including recently serving as U.S. counsel to a group of secured bondholders in the recapitalization of Satélites Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V. (Satmex), a leading provider of fixed satellite services in Mexico.
Ropes & Gray’s private investment funds attorneys are intimately familiar with the special tax and structuring issues involved with many types of funds and investments – natural resources, leveraged buyouts, hedge funds, co-investment funds, real estate funds and energy/infrastructure – spanning the Americas, including Canada, the United States and Brazil.
The firm’s anti-corruption attorneys work with clients across industries to identify risks, ensure compliance and defend against government investigations. Our clients doing business around the world include multinational conglomerates, financial institutions, private equity firms, and mutual funds, as well as their officers and directors. We work across every industry whose participants engage in global business transactions, including health care and life sciences, financial services, private equity, transportation, manufacturing and energy.
