Luisa MuskusWhite & Case LLP

White & Case LLP has a dynamic Latin America M&A practice with deals throughout the region, particularly Brazil, Mexico, Chile and other larger economies. It continues to be active in energy, infrastructure, technology and financial services. It has also experienced growth in intra-regional deals and with Latin American businesses acquiring assets in the US; it advised QuintoAndar on its headline acquisition of operations of the Navent Group real estate platform in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, and Panama. The firm is noted for both bulge-bracket and mid-cap deals, and benefits from having strong teams in Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Houston, Miami and New York. Rodrigo Dominguez leads the Latin America M&A group and has led the team on a series of headline deals in recent years. William Parish is equally experienced in Latin America M&A, particularly in the energy sector. Sao Paulo office founder Donald Baker provides extensive cross-border M&A experience in Brazil. Marwan Azzi left the firm in 2021. Luisa Muskus impresses at associate level. All named individuals are based in Houston unless stated otherwise.

Latin America: International firms > City Focus - Houston

White & Case LLP has built a substantial Houston office in recent years. Its Latin America corporate and M&A team is now centred there. Rodrigo Dominguez leads the Latin America M&A team and has an extensive record on transactions in multiple jurisdictions across the region. He led the team that advised QuintoAndar on its headline acquisition of operations of the Navent Group real estate platform in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, and Panama; and also represented Sempra Energy on its $2.1bn stock-for-stock acquisition of the remaining stake in Infraestructura Energética Nova (IEnova), a large-scale owner and operators of renewable power assets and energy transportation and storage in Mexico. William Parish is another experienced Latin America M&A specialist, especially in the energy sector; while Emilio Grandío is an up-and-coming -and increasingly key- Latin America M&A specialist, having been promoted to partner in 2021. At associate level, Luisa Muskus also impresses with regard to Latin America M&A. On the contentious front, international arbitration partner Silvia Marchili has a fast-growing reputation.
