MIAMI – Oct. 5, 2015 – The Latin American and Iberian Practice of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, P.A. received the award for the top “International Counsel in Latin America: Corporate & Finance (Florida-based)” award at the Chambers and Partners seventh annual 2015 Latin America Awards for Excellence ceremony held Sept. 25 in Miami. This was the seventh time the firm has been nominated for an award by Chambers Latin America and the sixth time the firm has been selected as the winner, including in 2014 when the firm was selected as “Law Firm of the Year – International Counsel in Latin America.”

The event celebrates firms working in Latin America that have emerged as leaders in a jurisdiction or area of law over the past 12 months. Winners are recognized based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client feedback, a review of the law firm’s strategic growth, and the significance and complexity of the deals the firm has worked on over the last year.
