(Next Generation Partners)

Anna AndreevaWhite & Case LLP

White & Case LLP has one of the deepest teams of Latin America projects and energy specialists in the market. This allowed it to maintain strong activity levels in 2020, despite a significant slowdown in deals across the region. The Latin America group has a balanced client base of sponsors and lenders, including major regional and international commercial lenders and agencies/DFIs. The firm is at the top of the market in oil and gas, and power (including conventional and renewables), and it is building market share in infrastructure and mining. Fernando de la Hoz is a key figure in mining projects, while emerging talent and New York partner Thomas Pate is bolstering the firm’s standing in infrastructure. Mexico and Brazil are its primary markets, given the firm’s sizeable offices in both jurisdictions, with Colombia and Chile also providing a steady pipeline of renewables and oil and gas engagements. The firm’s tight connections to agencies and DFIs also ensure that it has deal flow from smaller markets such as Paraguay, Uruguay and Ecuador. Carlos Viana leads the Latin America group and has an outstanding record in energy and infrastructure projects, as does senior name Sean Goldstein, who maintains strong links to Mexico and other key jurisdictions. Jeannine Acevedo and Anna Andreeva are also emerging talents, while New York associate Raffaele Turco is a key figure in project development and construction in the region. All named individuals are based in Miami unless stated otherwise.

Latin America: International firms > City focus - Miami

White & Case LLP is an absolute giant of the Miami market with deep and extensive connections to Latin America. Much of the Miami-based Latin America team’s focus is on financings, ranging from project finance through to aviation finance. Moreover, the group has an established record in Latin America restructurings, and white-collar crime and investigations. International arbitration is another area of growth for the office with Silvia Marchili splitting her time between Houston and Miami; she frequently represents claimants in investment arbitrations against Latin American states and state entities; this includes being part of the team that represented Red Eagle Mining in an ICSID arbitration against Colombia under the Canada-Colombia bilateral investment treaty. In white-collar crime and investigations, a Miami team featuring Michael Garcia and Maria Beguiristain have an excellent standing in FCPA violations and accounting fraud, notably in Brazil, Ecuador and Central America. In the finance segment, Carlos Viana (head of the Latin America team), Sean Goldstein, Jeannine Acevedo and Anna Andreeva comprise an outstanding team, particularly in energy and infrastructure finance, while Christian Hansen is a leader in aviation finance. Richard Kebrdle is a prominent figure in Latin America restructurings, and Fernando de la Hoz covers a range of M&A, project finance and capital markets transactions, notably in the metals and mining segment. Victor Mendoza is an experienced name in capital markets and debt financings. Former capital markets partner Mark Bagnall has retired.
