GC Powerlist: Central America Reception

THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC POWERLIST: CENTRAL AMERICA

SAN JOSE: 17 NOVEMBER 2016


Thursday November 17th saw the very best of the region's in-house legal talent come together for the launch of the first GC Powerlist for Central America and the Dominican Republic. The champagne reception, attended by some 50 in-house lawyers from across the isthmus took place at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in San Jose, Costa Rica, providing attendees with an opportunity to network with professional peers from both other industries and other jurisdictions.

The GC Powerlist is a publication designed to highlight the most influential and innovative general counsel in a given market. A three month process of nominations, background research and interviews concluded in the selection of 100 in-house lawyers from across Brazil.

Included on the list are the key in-house lawyers for iconic local entities such as Copa Airlines, Mesoamerica, Grupo Financiero Ficohsa, Banco Dominicano del Progreso and Cuestamoras, as well as key multinationals with a local presence including brands including Colgate Palmolive, Cargill, Bayer, Tigo, Nestlé and Kimberly-Clark. The full list can be seen here.

A number of those present commented on the benefits of an event that brought together counsel from across the region – “it’s not something that I can recall happening before” –, while others noted how interesting it was to have the opportunity to talk to legal counsel from entities in the public sector such as the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic, The Panama Canal Authority or the Costa Rican Consejo Nacional de Supervisión del Sistema Financiero.

"A great initiative – a thanks to all involved!" commented one Dominican attendee; it only remains for me to note our sincere thanks to sponsoring firm Pacheco Coto Abogados, without which this event would not have been possible.
