María Coor joined Amazon’s Business Conduct and Ethics team in August 2019 as Senior Corporate Counsel, focusing on the Latin America region. Before joining Amazon, María was a partner at BakerHostetler - she was the first Latinx attorney to be elected partner in BakerHostetler’s Washington, D.C. office. María’s multifaceted practice at BakerHostetler covered both international and environmental work. She represented clients in investigations involving Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance, with a focus on Latin America. She also represented clients in litigation and arbitration matters related to Latin America, and in litigation and regulatory matters involving environmental issues. Prior to BakerHostetler, María was an associate at Arnold & Porter, and before that, she worked as a legal intern at Hogan & Hartson.


She interned with the White House Office of Science and Technology during the Clinton Administration and also worked on the Clinton Presidential Million Solar Roofs Initiative. María spent two years as a researcher at Resources for the Future, a non-profit, non-partisan organization focused on energy and environmental policy. María has a JD from Duke University School of Law, a Master of Arts in Law & Diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts, and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from Brown University, where she was a recipient of the Royce Fellowship, the Andrew W. Mellon Minority Undergraduate Fellowship, the C.V. Starr Fellowship, and the Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association Scholarship. She also attended D.C. public schools through high school and is the proud mother of three children who currently attend D.C. public schools. María serves on the board of directors of two non-profit organizations – Capoeira DC and First Shift Justice Project – and is member of the Hispanic National Bar Association and the Hispanic Bar Association of D.C.
