Duane Morris' Latin America Business Group includes attorneys who speak Spanish, Portuguese, and French, as well as English, and also attorneys who have experience and are admitted to practice in jurisdictions in Latin America. We often can bring an understanding of the local legal field, culture and business trends, together with the resources of a large, international law firm. One of our attorneys formerly served as Mexico's Ambassador to Singapore, Negara Brunei Darussalam and the Union of Myanmar, and is a member of the Commission on Globalization World Forum and president of the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce. Another Duane Morris attorney studied law in Venezuela, worked with the Agency for International Development in Bolivia and Brazil, and served as Latin American Counsel for one of the world's largest corporations for nearly a decade. Still other Duane Morris lawyers are leaders in Latin American and Hispanic bar and business groups and devote their practice to the specifics of doing business in Brazil, Puerto Rico, Cuba and elsewhere in Latin America.
