Mondelēz International

‘The in-house team at San Jose, Costa Rica has vast experience in several legal matters and stand out for having a diverse background that, together, make a great combination’, is how one nominator describes the Central America and Caribbean legal team at US multinational food company Mondelēz International. The company has close ties in Central America and, with a base in Costa Rica, its operations in the area cover hire to retire business services, an information technology solutions hub and a business unit for Central America and the Caribbean. The legal department, led by senior counsel Melania Calzada, is also commended for their ‘exceptional capacity’ and for being ‘highly focused on Corporate, IP, M&A and regulatory matters related to the food business being one of the world’s largest snacks companies’.
