A lot can happen in 20 years. In the two decades since the launch of Latin Lawyer, we have observed Latin America’s legal community transform in more ways than one. Some developments have changed the composition of law firms in the region, making them more egalitarian places than they once were. Key moments in politics and global economics have dictated important trends for specific markets. Competition has intensified. The entry of powerful international players has shaken up markets across the region. It would be impossible to list every which way Latin America’s legal space has evolved, but we have invited leading members of the profession to recount their personal experiences of some of the key themes that have defined the legal practice in Latin America in Latin Lawyer's lifetime.
