The Latin Lawyer's Third Edition of The Guide to Restructuring is now available for download.
Edited by Baker McKenzie attorneys Michael Fitzgerald and Joy Gallup, the Guide is a robust overview of the state of the restructuring practice in relevant jurisdictions in Latin America. Through the contributions of restructuring and bankruptcy experts across Latin America, the Guide explores a broad range of topics and analyzes the latest events in the practice of cross-border restructurings and bankruptcies. Intended not as a reference of regional laws, the Guide instead aims to provide practical restructuring and insolvency advice to help navigate the complex political and economic landscape of Latin America today.
