Corporate Law Client Strategies in Latin America provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on best practices for representing clients looking to invest or expand operations in Latin and South America. Written by experienced partners from the United States and throughout the LatAm region, this book guides the reader through the maze of government bureaucracy, often cumbersome business regulations, and the wide variety of cultural norms that must be understood, appreciated, and navigated well to effectively represent one's clients.

Regardless of the LatAm region at issue, these authors identify opportunity and risk in several industry sectors, including oil and gas production, global outsourcing, and high tech research and development. Finally, these leaders identify top strategies for investing in Latin America Ð through an investment fund, co-investing with another investment vehicle, or making a direct investment in the region through an M&A transaction, joint venture, or other transaction. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts on the keys to success within this dynamic field.
