Latin America

Cooley works with startups to launch new ventures and take them forward. We have been at it since the VC industry began, having formed the first venture fund in the United States in Silicon Valley. Clients who partner with us get the advantage of extensive experience, true teamwork, and an entrepreneurial culture that helps build businesses and trust to transform breakthrough ideas into successful companies. Cooley also has unparalleled access to the largest and most influential network of venture capital investors in the world.

Our work with emerging companies in Latin America runs the full legal spectrum. We advise companies from formation through venture financings, private equity financings, mergers & acquisitions, and public offerings – and everything in between and beyond. Cooley has been counsel to some of the biggest names in the Latam technology space since their infancy. Our experience advising some of the most exciting venture-backed Latin American companies in the region allows us to better understand the business and cultural landscapes affecting our clients. This has helped us earn our clients’ trust.

Our team’s multidisciplinary approach provides clients in the region with access to thought leaders in complex areas where the law is in a constant state of flux, including fintech regulatory counseling, transactional, alternative lending, digital currency and blockchain technology, payments, cyber/data/privacy, intellectual property, tax, and more.
