Central America

The scene is set

From the determined strength of pro bono coordinators to the collaborative efforts of law firms (played out increasingly across borders), the results of our annual pro bono survey demonstrate how pro bono is weaved into the fabric of Latin America’s legal market. The work being done around the region showcases the outstanding achievements of lawyers and clearing houses working together. Now, the challenge is to engage even more lawyers in the fight to bring access to justice to all.

The missing piece of the puzzle

Partner participation in pro bono is still low, despite clearing houses’ best efforts to get the senior level of law firms involved. While firms can still make a big contribution to pro bono without partner involvement, the fact remains the partnership holds the power to effect institutional change necessary to increase the volume of work done.

United we stand, divided we fall

The Big Four, the commoditisation of legal services and encroaching global firms are threats keeping managing partners from Mexico City to Rio de Janeiro up at night. At a roundtable in San José, partners told Tom Muskett-Ford why firms in Central America, the most integrated market in Latin America, can face off some of those threats with a new wave of consolidation, which could see them expand beyond Central America’s borders to stay ahead of the competition.
