This guide provides an annual review of the legal marketplace across multiple Latin American jurisdictions, complete with analysis of the Latin American practices of international law firms. We also publish annually the Latin Lawyer Elite, a group of 40 leading firms in the region, not only for the work they do, but also for the way in which they are led and managed. The leaders of these firms work with us on high-level research and meetings to discuss critical issues for the profession.
