Latin America

Comprised of 20 countries and accounting for roughly 8.5% of the world’s population, Latin America is an important market with a global influence. Latin American businesses and high net worth families, and those looking to invest or do business in the region, are looking for advisers with market experience who offer the highest levels of client service.

Through established relationships with local and multinational corporations, financial institutions, asset managers, investors, family offices, law firms and service providers in Latin America, the Conyers Latin America Group offers in-depth regional knowledge of business practices and structures.

We are well positioned to advise clients located in or transacting with Latin America on the laws of Bermuda, BVI and the Cayman Islands. Our team of highly qualified attorneys, some of whom are fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese, have many years of experience assisting clients on matters originating from or related to the region.

Conyers has been instrumental in some of Latin America’s recent leading corporate, capital markets and financing transactions, including:

  • Advising Despegar, the leading travel company in Latin America, on its successful IPO on the NYSE
  • Advising a leading US-headquartered global retailer on its planned acquisition of a leading online marketplace for on-demand delivery from supermarkets, pharmacies and specialty food retailers in Mexico and Chile
  • Advising PagSeguro Digital, a mobile payment-based e-commerce service, in connection with its $US 2.3 billion IPO, one of the largest ever for a Brazilian company listed on the NYSE, and its subsequent US$1 billion follow-on offering post-IPO
  • Advising Liberty Latin America on its split-off from Liberty Global plc, launch and US listing as an independent publicly-traded company
  • Advising EZCorp Inc. on its US$53 million acquisition of 112 pawn stores across Latin America
