From the start of January 2019, we are changing the way we collect deal submissions. The new process is designed to speed up our reporting on transactions, allow for a broader coverage of deals via monthly round ups and provide readers with a better analysis of who is doing what in the market. In turn, this will deepen and improve our research for the Latin Lawyer 250 and LACCA’s annual list of Who Represents Latin America’s Biggest Companies.
We have limited the changes to the submission process as much as possible. Deals will still be submitted online, via the existing submit news page on our website. We will ask you for the same information, but in a slightly different way. The new system will roll out at the start of January, at which point the existing submission form for transactions will be closed. Clear instructions on how to use the new system will be available on the website and the team will also be available to answer any questions.
The process for submitting people news and updates on new legislation will remain the same.
As is tradition, Latin Lawyer’s briefing will be taking a break over the holiday period, returning on 2 January 2019. Any news already submitted via the existing system and between now and the New Year will be treated in the same way, with reporting of 2018 deals continuing into early 2019.
More detailed instructions will be sent out to you at the time of launch. We thank you for your patience in transitioning to the new system and welcome any feedback along the way.
Wishing you all the best for the holiday period.
The Latin Lawyer team
