Debevoise & Plimpton has been recognized by Chambers Latin America in their 2020 guide of leading law firms. The publication ranked nine Debevoise lawyers for their exceptional work in the Latin American market: Donald Francis Donovan, Mark Friedman, Michael Gillespie, Gregory Gooding, Andrew Levine, Maurizio-Levi Minzi, Dietmar Prager, David Rivkin and Bruce Yannett.
Notably, the firm has been ranked for the first time in Chambers Latin America’s Corporate M&A International – Brazil category. Additionally, the firm’s Latin America Group again achieved top rankings in the Corporate Crime & Investigations, Corporate/M&A and International Arbitration categories. The publication touted Debevoise as a “revered market leader known for its standout capabilities in highly sophisticated Latin American corporate criminal work.” One client added “Debevoise has built up profound experience in white-collar issues in many markets, which is useful for any global company” and another client said “I would highlight a number of aspects. They know my business extremely well, they always provide the best advice as their knowledge is really broad and they have never led me astray. Also, even though it's a big law firm, you still get the focus and attention you need from senior partners.”
The Debevoise Latin America practice combines top-tier litigation and arbitration skills, broad transactional capabilities and a savvy understanding of the region. The practice works with some of the most sophisticated and respected conglomerates, corporations, investors and families in Latin America, with some relationships dating back more than 50 years.
