A dynamic and fast-growing player in the global economy, Latin America offers vast opportunities for corporations looking to expand their presence in the region. At the same time, wealth and investments from Latin America are pouring into other countries, often channelled through Europe and, particularly, the Benelux.
Driven by passion and entrepreneurship, our Latin America Desk in Amsterdam serves the needs of clients in the region, with emphasis on the following countries:
Argentina | Brazil | Bolivia | Chile | Colombia | Mexico | Peru | Venezuela
Baker & McKenzie’s Latin America Desk draws on long-standing experience and close relationships with our local offices to deliver fully integrated, cross-border advice on: a) Outbound investments from Latin America
— Latin American companies and individuals that invest or trade in Europe or other
regions; and b) Inbound investments into Latin America
— multinational and European companies, financial institutions and individuals that
invest in Latin America.
Our Latin America Desk brings together a diverse team of lawyers, civil law notaries, economists, financial analysts and tax advisors with in-depth knowledge of Latin American and European markets and legal environments. The team frequently meets and collaborates with our Latin American practitioners to develop new products and services focused on strategic operations and large transactions. Other areas of focus include new business initiatives in Latin America, local market developments, conferences and publications.
Members of the Latin America Desk speak Portuguese and Spanish.
Whether you are a multinational entering Latin America or a Latin American company doing business in Europe, navigating the legal systems in both regions is key to operating efficiently.

With significant experience implementing projects and investments in Latin America and working with Latin American companies, we know the do's and don'ts in the region and can provide timely, comprehensive advice wherever clients operate.
