Deficits in infrastructure and a plethora of family-owned businesses across Latin America continue to drive projects and M&A work in the region. At the same time, in recent years leftist leaders have taken charge of the region’s major economies: Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico. This swing left has led to a rise in disputes, while also sending loads of cash and wealthy individuals into U.S. offshore hubs such as Miami and Houston.
