NEW YORK, March 18, 2016: Morgan Lewis was honored at a ceremony hosted by Latin Lawyer yesterday for the firm’s representation of the largest ad hoc group of holders of debt issued by OAS, a Brazilian construction and infrastructure conglomerate, in connection with the ongoing restructuring of its obligations and corporate form.

Morgan Lewis received a Deal of the Year Award for its work, an annual recognition awarded to general counsel and law firms advising on the most significant deals across Latin America in seven categories: project finance, M&A, restructuring, private equity, regulatory, disputes, and corporate finance.
