Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy has been recognized in the Corporate (Capital Markets), Finance and Disputes categories in the 2014 edition of IFLR – Energy and Infrastructure: Latin America. IFLR says, “Milbank’s Latin America practice is virtually unrivalled. It carries out a higher volume of deals than all the practice areas of some firms put together.”
Over the past year, Milbank’s Latin America Practice Group has closed over $20 billion in debt offerings and over $18 billion in project finance transactions. IFLR recognized the team’s work on various transactions across Central America and South America, such as:
- Major joint venture: BTG/Deep Sea Supply Plc (DESS)
- Largest debt offering ever for a Peruvian corporate: TgP
- Largest bond offering ever by a Colombian company: Ecopetrol S.A.
- Multiple loans to Brazilian states: State of Maranhão and State of Santa Catarina
“We are honored by the recognition given by IFLR, which is well known as one of the leading sources for international financial and legal news,” said Marcelo Mottesi, partner and member of the firm’s Global Executive Committee, chair of the firm’s Global Securities practice and a member of the firm’s Latin America group. “It’s gratifying to see the range of transactions singled out by IFLR in its annual energy and infrastructure guide. It makes for a good composite snapshot of how active Milbank continues to be across Latin America, in key markets and in important areas of economic activity.”
The IFLR:Energy and Infrastructure rankings are based on recommendations of in-house counsel, as well as leading attorneys in each legal market the organization covers.
