Two Cleary Gottlieb Partners Named “Latin America Legal Stars”

March 13, 2012

Cleary Gottlieb partners Jaime A. El Koury and Jorge U. Juantorena were included among Latin Business Chronicle’s “Top 50 Latin America Legal Stars,” a list of 50 of the leading foreign lawyers operating in the region.

Lawyers were selected on the basis of several criteria, including involvement in recent prominent deals and transactions in Latin America, the importance of their firms in Latin America, the Latin America practice’s prominence within their firms and their rankings in third-party publications such as Chambers.

Actively engaged in Latin America work for more than 50 years, Cleary Gottlieb’s commitment to and knowledge of the region is unparalleled. With more than 100 lawyers firm-wide engaged in the practice, including more than 80 Spanish speakers and more than 25 Portuguese speakers, the firm has a broader and deeper talent base in this area than any other international law firm.

Latin Business Chronicle is an online journal produced by the Latin Trade Group that provides information on a range of topics, issues, sectors and statistics related to business and technology in Latin America.
