S&C in Latin America

April 17, 2017

There is a great profile of S&C and its globally-integrated, multi-disciplinary Latin American practice in the 2017 edition of Latin Lawyer 250. Latin Lawyer writes that S&C's LatAm practice “is fully integrated with the wider firm, which gives it a pool of highly talented and experienced lawyers to draw upon,” and recognizes our partners for their work on high-stakes matters in a range of practice areas. To take its coverage of our corporate and M&A practice as one example, LL250 notes, “Sergio Galvis is the most prominent name in an M&A practice that is one of the region's most prestigious, seen repeatedly on multibillion-dollar deals which tend to have layers of complexity. Other key members of the practice are Chris Mann and Werner Ahlers. Bob DeLaMater, William Torchiana, Bob Risoleo and Andrew Gerlach are also active. Scott Crofton is gaining visibility.”

The write-up outlines our cross border M&A deals,  project financings, sovereign work, capital markets deals, arbitrations, litigations, investigations and crisis management matters and states that “Sullivan & Cromwell is one of the inner circle of firms working on government capital raising…[and] has a highly renowned banking and finance practice across the board…The firm is also very prominent in litigation, particularly for Latin American clients in conflicts in the US.” Latin Lawyer notes that for clients dealing with Latin America, S&C is “the firm you call in when stakes are high…having Sullivan & Cromwell on your side of a deal table promises an excellence of service, and sends a powerful message about your intentions.”
