The firm has been nominated since the award’s inaugural year in 2009 and has won in its respective category four years.

“Our sincere thanks to our clients and law firms based in Latin America for enabling us to receive this prestigious recognition, which is a testament to our commitment to provide the high-quality legal counsel and personalized service our clients require,” said Patricia Menéndez-Cambó, chair of the firm's 200-plus member Global Practice Group.
Greenberg Traurig’s Latin America team, located in Chicago, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, New York and other offices across the firm, includes attorneys who have spent years living and practicing law in Latin America, many of whom previously served in top posts as chief legal officers and regional counsel for multinational companies in the telecommunications, banking, energy and hotel industries. The group’s practice includes assisting multilatinas and multinationals, with an emphasis on IBEX-listed Spanish companies with energy, telecommunications, media and infrastructure projects in the U.S. and throughout Latin America.
Greenberg Traurig’s multidisciplinary team has wide-ranging experience representing U.S. and international clients who do business in Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, as well as advising Latin American and Spanish clients on their business ventures in the U.S. The firm’s office in Mexico City provides legal services to international clients seeking to enter the Mexican and Latin American markets, as well as those with established businesses in the region.
