S&C in Latin America
Throughout more than a century of involvement in Latin America—dating back to the creation of the Panama Canal—S&C has played an integral role in Latin America’s economic and legal history.
Today, S&C is known for litigation successes, including representing:
- Republic of Argentina in litigation brought by investor funds in the Southern District of New York relating to GDP-linked securities. The court dismissed the first-filed of the cases in January 2020;
- Grupo México S.A.B. de C.V. in Delaware derivative litigation challenging acquisition of power plants;
- Banco Bradesco in a shareholder class action in the Southern District of New York; and
- U.S. and foreign financial institutions, as well as a Spanish individual and a U.S. corporation, in connection with FIFA corruption investigations.
