Latin America Professional Development Group
The Latin America Professional Development Group (LAPD) is an initiative of Shearman & Sterling associates and counsel with professional and personal interests in Latin America. LAPD is dedicated to promoting the professional development of its members through various networking, language, pro bono and other regionally focused initiatives. LAPD also works with the partners in our Latin America & Caribbean practice group to enhance the firm’s market-leading presence in the region.
Spanning across several offices and practice groups, LAPD represents the next generation of leadership at Shearman & Sterling for lawyers focused on Latin America and is a reaffirmation of the firm's forward-thinking commitment to the region. The group builds on the collective experiences of its members, whose relationship to the region includes professional, academic and personal experiences, industry connections and linguistic/cultural affinities.
