At a Glance Guide to Ogier's Latin American team

You can read our infographic version of our at a glance guide here.

Ogier's team of Cayman Attorneys has a long track record of working with clients in Latin America, enabling and structuring investment into and out of the region.

Supported by Cayman-qualified Attorneys in the Asian and European timezones and by lawyers in nine international offices practising BVI, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg law, we specialise in corporate, finance, funds, disputes and private client work.

While we made our name setting up funds to make investments in Brazil, our work has evolved to help Brazilian companies and the growing pool of high net worth Brazilian individuals make investments overseas.

Ogier is active throughout the region, and has an extensive network of Latin American clients in Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Central America.
