Maria-Leticia Ossa Daza, Chair of the Latin America Practice Group; Jorge Kamine, Co-Chair of the Project Finance Practice Group; and Maurice Lefkort, partner in the Corporate & Financial Services Department were recognized among the leading U.S.-based counsel active in the Mexican market today as part of Legal 500’s 2022 Private Practice Powerlist: US-Mexico.


Each of them were featured in a Q&A in the publication where they discuss topics such as what sets Willkie’s Latin America practice apart from its competitors and peers, the unique challenges of representing Mexico-based clients from the United States, anticipated changes to the commercial and legal market in Mexico over the next year, and more.


The Private Practice Powerlist: US-Mexico seeks to identify the leading U.S.-based counsel active in the Mexican market today through research that has involved canvassing the opinion of law firm partners and in-house counsel alike, as well as analysis of career trajectories of the candidate considered for inclusion. Examining both current practice and historical data, it has sought to identify practitioners with an engagement that goes beyond occasionally participation in this specialized bi-national context.


Willkie’s Latin America Practice Group provides strategic legal representation and trusted counsel to innovative market-leaders with interests or operations in Mexico and all of Latin America. The group’s practitioners add value through a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach and cross-border experience. Some of the highlights of the group’s work in Mexico over the last 12 months alone include advising on América Móvil’s sale of TracFone to Verizon for Over $6 Billion and Greycroft’s investment in Addi, a Mexican Fintech company.
