Northern Latin America

Our firm’s Latin American roots are reflected in our extensive work throughout North, Central, and Andean America and the Caribbean.

We work with global companies engaged in the hemisphere, as well as with Latin American companies seeking to invest around the world.  Our team’s distinguished members have lived throughout the region, served in high level policymaking positions, and been at the forefront of regional policies and developments for decades. 

Our work in the region is led by Stephen C. Donehoo, a former military intelligence officer specializing in Latin America who has lived in Colombia, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama.

We’ve helped our clients succeed in this complex region through periods of dramatic political change –  through advocacy and problem-solving, identifying potential partners and targets, evaluating political risk, and developing successful investment strategies.


Latin America was our first practice area at McLarty Associates over 25 years ago. Since then, we have helped 150+ US and multinational companies in the region. Our firm’s leaders have shaped US relations with the hemisphere as senior officials, long-term investors, and special envoys, and they bring this experience to our client service.
