Bouncing back

Mergers and acquisitions across Latin America had been brisk in 2019 and even up until, and during, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. But deals dried up in the second quarter of this year as the region endured lockdown. Anna Tavares de Mello, a partner at Trench Rossi Watanabe in Brazil, talked to us about the panorama going forward as the region’s economies reopen and investors line up to acquire distressed assets

Data-driven

Brazil’s data protection law came into effect in August 2020, designed to provide a comprehensive legal framework and which will bring new challenges to companies and law firms as they help their clients navigate the new regulations.

New challenges

Even before the first quarter of the year is behind us, Latin America is facing new challenges, with its economies dependent on exports to China and other parts of Asia likely to see a slowdown as a result of the coronavirus, while the slump in oil prices – the sharpest since the early 1990s – will likely dampen the revenues of those oil-exportdependent economies of the region.

'A revolutionary law'

Cuatrecasas hired Domingo Rivarola Reisz as a partner and head of its litigation and arbitration practice in Lima last November, bringing the office’s partner count to six, and who echoes other Latin American lawyers' opinion that the use of arbitration is on the rise.

Best practices

Numerous law firms across Latin America, as well as firms in the US with a strong focus south of the border, are boosting their services offerings by adding new practices or growing existing ones, in response to an increased workload and client demand, and one of which is ECIJA, which has launched a human rights and social responsibility practice, the first law firm to offer such a practice in Mexico.
