Latinvex Again Recognizes Maddie Kadas Among Latin America’s Top 50 Female Lawyers

Washington, DC and Austin, TX – For the second year in a row, Latinvex has named Beveridge & Diamond Principal and Latin American Region Practice Chair Madeleine B. (Maddie) Kadas to its annual list of "Latin America's Top 50 Female Lawyers."

Latinvex refers to Beveridge & Diamond’s Latin American practice as "one of the key Latin American environmental law practices in the United States.”

Ms. Kadas provides legal analyses, risk reduction strategy assessments and compliance counseling on a variety of issues arising under the domestic environmental regulations of most Latin American countries. Ms. Kadas recently led the Firm’s Latin American Environmental Law Roundtable, that convened over 40 corporate legal and EHS executives and featured a keynote address by Charles Di Leva, the World Bank’s Chief Counsel for Environmental and International Law.

Fluent in Spanish and proficient in Italian and French, Ms. Kadas received a post-graduate degree from La Escuela Libre de Derecho School of Law, Mexico's premier law school (one of only a handful of U.S. attorneys to have done so), where she wrote and defended a thesis on Mexico's hazardous waste and remediation standards.  From 1988-1990, she served in the United States Peace Corps in Guatemala.

“Maddie continues to bring honor to our firm for her leadership and stewardship of our Latin American practice,” said Benjamin F. Wilson, Beveridge & Diamond’s Managing Principal. “Our clients benefit from her deep substantive expertise, language capabilities, and business savvy.”
