Latin America Practice

We provide a broad range of legal support for businesses entering or operating in Brazil, Mexico, and other countries in Latin America

As companies become increasingly active on a global scale and seek opportunities in Latin America, we are engaged in many transactions and matters involving Latin America.

We provide legal support for corporations entering markets and conducting business in the major economies of Latin America, including Mexico, Panama, Peru, Columbia, Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, as well as other countries of Latin America.

We have advised on a broad range of matters, including M&A, joint ventures, and financing, involving Latin American companies, general corporate matters including establishment of subsidiaries in Latin America, and dispute resolution with Latin American parties.
Information in Japanese regarding legal practices in Latin America is often insufficient or lacking in the public domain. As such, we actively provide such information for our Japanese clients. For example, we regularly conduct seminars and information sessions for clients regarding the legal practices of countries such as Mexico and Brazil.

We also regularly conduct seminars and information sessions in Brazil for employees of Japanese corporations transferred or stationed there. We also publish many articles, essays, and newsletters regarding the laws of Latin America and major amendments thereto.

We maintain a strong network with local law firms throughout Latin America. We cooperate with lawyers from the different firms in a wide variety of transactions and matters, and hold seminars and author papers on a joint basis with them. We also second lawyers to top law firms in Brazil. Our knowledge and network allow us to handle all types of matters and to assemble the appropriate team of Latin American lawyers for our clients in accordance with the scale, nature, and budget of the matters.
