Akerman LLP today announced that Chambers Global has once again recognized the firm's Latin America & the Caribbean Practice as among the best in International Arbitration: Latin America-wide. Akerman lawyers representing the firm's strengths in corporate M&A, international arbitration and international trade also continue to be singled out as leaders in their fields.

The 2014 edition of the Chambers Global Guide ranked Luis A. Perez, co-chair of Akerman's Latin America & the Caribbean Practice, and Luis M. O'Naghten, chair of the firm's International Litigation & Arbitration Practice, as leading lawyers in International Arbitration across Latin America. Carlos Méndez-Peñate, co-chair of Akerman's Latin America & the Caribbean Practice was recognized in the category Corporate/M&A in Latin America as well. Additionally, Felipe Berer was highlighted as a leader in International Trade in both the U.S. and Brazil markets.

Chambers Latin America recently ranked Akerman's Latin America & the Caribbean Practice with the same distinction in International Arbitration. The team also was recognized nationally in the 2014 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers for International Trade and Finance Law, and for International Arbitration – Commercial.

The Chambers Global 2014 Guide draws on the results of Chambers' various regional guides to rank the world’s leading law firms and lawyers based on client and peer feedback.
