“Our LatAm desk is purpose-built to deliver the insights and perspectives that will drive success for Latin American clients entering U.S. markets and American enterprises expanding into Latin America,” said Victor M.

The team provides comprehensive, global services with a focus on:

  • Assurance and Attest Services
