DETROIT, Feb. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Legal Alliance of the Americas, a network of top law firms in North and South America, with more than 300 attorneys, has announced that it has expanded into Peru and Colombia.
The Alliance focuses on providing legal services throughout the Americas. It comprises top-tier law firms in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the United States, and has recently added two new firms: Casahierro Abogados in Lima, Peru, and Lloreda Camacho & Co. in Bogota, Colombia. The addition of these firms will further expand the Alliance's reach, providing clients with seamless representation in key markets.
Companies and investors are increasingly eager to do business throughout North and South America, provided they are able to mitigate legal and regulatory risks.

Due to growing client interest in expansion and operations in South America, the Alliance will present an informational program in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on doing business in North and South America, and the legal compliance issues involved in cross-border business relationships. The keynote speaker will be Brazilian economist, engineer and entrepreneur Ingo Plöger, President of the Business Council of Latin America.
"This event is an excellent opportunity for companies and investors who are interested in hearing from legal and business specialists about the opportunities and legal issues in North and South American markets," said Alliance Executive Director Jose P. Ceppi.
