There are some clear front runners in the M&A space, as our country league tables illustrate. With big global firms still featuring in the large majority of high-value transactions in Latin America, how does a local firm’s international strategy affect its referrals and deal flow?

The findings of our fifth joint pro bono survey provide plenty of reasons to feel positive. Pro bono appears to have turned a corner in Latin America thanks to an ever strengthening infrastructure and the greater willingness of more firms to take part.
