Eduardo Leite, who was born in Uruguay, but holds dual Brazilian and Uruguayan citizenship, is also included. He currently serves as head of the Global Energy, Mining & Infrastructure Practice Group at U.S.-based Baker & McKenzie, the second-largest U.S. law firm in revenues. In October he will become the firm’s first-ever foreign-born chairman.
