Latinvex Names Akin Gump and Dino Barajas Among Top Law Firms and Lawyers in Latin America

(Los Angeles) – Akin Gump and cross-border transactions partner Dino Barajas have once again been named by Latinvex, a provider of news and analysis pertaining to Latin American business, as one of the top law firms and top 100 lawyers, respectively, in Latin America.

The rankings span six major categories (arbitration and litigation, banking and finance, capital markets, corporate/M&A, energy and project finance) as well as other specialties, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Barajas was selected for both his energy and project finance work.

Latinvex says the criteria used for making the selections were a combination of factors, including recent track record on major deals and business, prominence of a firm in Latin America and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Thomson Reuters.

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
