While its economic growth and young population make Latin America an "El Dorado" for investors, the region continues to be plagued by corruption and political volatility. This presents many challenges for businesses wanting to enter or expand in these markets.

High-profile scandals such as the Odebrecht bribery affair have exposed the extent of endemic corruption in the region. They have also raised awareness among domestic companies for the pressing need to implement compliance measures.

Our in-house team of Spanish and Portuguese speakers, managed by Bianca Barton, is complemented by a network of industry sources across the region who supply sector-specific intelligence and valuable political context.

Where public records are not digitally available - as in many Latin American countries - we can reliably obtain these on the ground. Contact Jakob
