According to the GC Powerlist website, The Legal 500 team canvases opinions from law firms and in-house counsel across the Latin American region and the United States "to identity corporate counsel that have been instrumental in changing or forming opinions within their company or industry, developing brilliant technical solutions to complex issues, or creating innovative structures to ensure that the in-house function is driving businesses forward."
"Our stellar in-house counsel team has helped navigate IBT through economic downturns and recessions in Latin America as well as political uncertainty in the various countries we operate in. Our legal team has proved to be dynamic and ever responsive in negotiating contracts with government entities in difficult social-political contexts. In addition, the team defended and led IBT to victory when we had to initiate arbitration proceedings after negotiation proved futile," said Daniel Toledano, managing director and chief operating officer of IBT.
General counsel Juan O'Naghten of Miami leads the in-house team of 20 attorneys and five support staff. The Miami team includes associate general counsels Claudia Brea and Raquel Martinez.
