Changes to Latin Lawyer news submissions

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.
