As Latin American legal work expands and matures throughout the region, more complex and more challenging work is being undertaken in every practice area all the time. Each year, Latin Lawyer identifies landmark Latin American deals and cases across seven categories, and recognises the achievements of practitioners in areas such as law firm leadership, diversity and pro bono – as well as those who have dedicated their careers to the advancement of the profession.
