Latin American Practice Group Chair Maria-Leticia Ossa Daza was recently profiled in Latinvex – Latin America Business News and Analysis, where she discussed the expansion and the outlook for Willkie’s work in the region and the importance of cross-border transactions.

She spoke about recent additions and changes made to the practice since she was named head, which has included creating “a solid, energetic and diverse team with knowledge of regional dynamics.” Recent team members focus on finance, business reorganization and restructuring, project finance, energy and infrastructure, private wealth, and litigation, who are admitted in and focused on working in in multiple jurisdictions, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.

Maria-Leticia also discussed the importance of diversity and representation of women.

“One of the ways this is cultivated is through my involvement in organizations that serve as a pipeline for diverse candidates. We have built a core team that consists of more than 50% women, and 40% of the members of our larger cross-practice group who focus on Latin America are also women. These factors have been a critical part of our overall success and helps us better serve our clients. I want to be a leader who holds the door open for others to reach their full potential.”
