On May 18, 2017, the firm’s corporate team held its Sixth Annual Latin America Forecast seminar, bringing together an exclusive group of thought leaders and practitioners for a dynamic discussion about the Latin America market. This year’s list of impressive panelists included Miami partner Fernando Margarit; Eric Farnsworth, VP for America Society-Counsel of the Americas; Ricardo Rodriguez, co-founder and president of Southern Cross Group; Miguel Bermejo, managing partner of Atlantico Capital Partners LLC; José Tadeo Martinez, lead counsel, and Juliana Soares Porto Fonseca, counsel at the Inter-American Investment Corporation; and José Salaverria, general counsel of Corporación Interamericana para el Financiamiento de Infrastructura, S.A. (CIFI)

For the first time, the event was held in our Washington office and participants included influential representatives from the International Monetary Fund, Inter-American Development Bank, International Investment Corporation, General Electric, Facebook, Marriott International, the Peruvian embassy, and others.

The success of the Latin America Forecast was the result of the tremendous collective effort of many people, led by Fernando Alonso, chair of the firm’s Latin America practice group.
