Duane Morris & Selvam advises clients on the opportunities and challenges of doing business in Latin America. We work closely with Asian companies seeking to enter or expand in Latin America; Latin American-based companies doing business in Asia, the United States and elsewhere; Latin American subsidiaries of Asian and transnational companies; and major financial institutions with interests in Asian and Latin America.
Attorneys of our Latin America Practice are fluent in Latin America languages and customs, and have experience practicing in jurisdictions in Latin America. We often can bring an understanding of the local legal field, culture and business trends, together with the resources of a large, international law firm. One of our attorneys formerly served as Mexico's Ambassador to Singapore, Negara Brunei Darussalam and the Union of Myanmar, and is a member of the Commission on Globalization World Forum and president of the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce. Another attorney studied law in Venezuela, worked with the Agency for International Development in Bolivia and Brazil, and served as Latin American Counsel for one of the world’s largest corporations for nearly a decade. Other Duane Morris lawyers are leaders in Latin American and Hispanic bar and business groups and devote their practice to the specifics of doing business in Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba and elsewhere in Latin America.
