Carvalho and Carter Named Top Lawyers for Business in Latin America by Latinvex

ArentFox Schiff is pleased to announce that Co-Managing Partner Cristina A. Carvalho and International Co-Leader Hunter T. Carter have been named to Latinvex’s Top 100 Lawyers list, an annual rating honoring leading attorneys from international law firms that serve as go-to advisors for Latin American companies.

This is Cristina’s seventh and Hunter’s eighth consecutive year earning this recognition. Additionally, ArentFox Schiff was recently named a top law firm for work in Latin America for the seventh year in a row.  

Cristina, a native of Brazil, serves as a go-to attorney in the US for major Latin American corporations. Throughout her career, she has used her knowledge and experience in the US and Brazil to counsel clients on strategies for navigating different legal systems and cultures to realize opportunities in both mature and emerging markets.

Hunter is an international litigator with an emphasis on Latin America. As a party representative and as an International Chamber of Commerce arbitrator, Hunter handles significant commercial matters across the region. He also helps conduct internal corporate investigations and provides guidance on compliance with anti-corruption laws. In addition, he is a recognized advocate for human rights, having advised on marriage equality initiatives in numerous Latin American countries and tried a case involving torture against Chile in the Inter-American Court on Human Rights.

Latinvex uses a combination of factors to calculate their annual lists, including work, prominence of the firm in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500, and Thomson Reuters.
