Dentons push into Latin America and the Caribbean is moving from strength to strength, with the firm announcing two new partnerships this week. In Mexico, the firm has announced the combination of Monterrey-based firm Canales Zambrano y Asociados with its existing Mexico City partnership Dentons López Velarde. The merger between the two firms was born out of a close personal connection between Dentons CEO for Latin America and the Caribbean Jorge Alers and new Monterrey office managing partner Gregorio Canales, who attended Harvard Law together in 1986. According to Canales, the tie-up between the pair will position Dentons López Velarde as the leading energy and infrastructure firm in the Mexican legal market.

In a separate deal, Dentons has acquired three Barbados-based attorneys from Canadian firm BCF to launch Dentons Barbados Attorneys-at-Law. Charles Gagnon, Rosalind Bynoe and Ruan Martinez will all be joining the global megafirm, with Mr Gagnon having previously worked with Dentons between 1995 and 2000.
