For the second year in a row, Bird & Bird was recognised at the prestigious Chambers Latin America Awards last Friday for the firm's work in Cuba. Bird & Bird was selected as the best international counsel operating in Cuba, beating contenders Akerman LLP, Greenberg Traurig, Holland & Knight LLP, Lupicinio and Uría Menéndez.
The awards ceremony and dinner was held in at Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Madrid partner Hermenegildo Altozano and London partner Peter Knight represented the firm and collected the award.
Hermenegildo Altozano and Peter Knight, partners and members of Bird & Bird's Latin America Group say: "It's a great achievement to win this award for a second consecutive year. It is a testament to the Latin America Group's impressive work and long-standing expertise in Cuba. It also demonstrates the firm's market-leading reputation in Cuba and its growing presence in Latin America which is a key part of the Group's strategy."
