COVID-19 Insights Series: A Regional Perspective – Latin America

  • Webcast

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Latin America on every level imaginable, creating not only social ramifications, but also altering how business will be conducted in the region moving forward. We had a multifaceted discussion featuring panelists Antonia Stolper (New York – Capital Markets), Alexandro M. Padrés (New York – Project Development & Finance), Ximena Herrera-Bernal (London – International Arbitration) and Roberta Berliner Cherman (São Paulo – Capital Markets) as they addressed how the pandemic has affected Latin America within the context of their respective practice areas. Gregory Tan (New York – Project Development & Finance) moderated the panel.

In addition to providing an overview of the current situation in the region, our panelists discussed:

  • How national governments are responding to the crisis
  • COVID-19’s effect on transaction flow, divestments, privatization timetable, and liquidity needs in Brazil
  • Short and long-term impact in the project development and finance space
  • Impact of COVID-19 emergency measures for potential investment treaty claims
