Mauricio Macri’s centre-right government will publicly launch its search today for a new firm based in New York to work with Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, Reuters reported. Argentina and the so-called ‘holdout’ bondholders intend to meet in the second week of January to begin talks to settle the legal dispute that stems from the country's $100 billion default in 2002.
