Latin Lawyer and the Latin American Corporate Counsel Association (LACCA) are the definitive sources of news and analysis for private practitioners and in-house counsel in Latin America’s business legal market.
LACCA brings together leading in-house counsel working in the region, affording them the opportunity to interact, share ideas and best practice, and network with peers across Latin America. By shining a light on in-house counsel needs through our regular briefing, LACCA also provides content that can help private practitioners shape their service offer to provide the best value to clients.
Membership of the association is free for lawyers working in-house and directly employed at a company on a full-time basis, who do not offer their services for a fee. Private practitioners can read LACCA content through the Latin Lawyer premium subscription.
Latin Lawyer has been providing comprehensive coverage of the region’s legal market for almost two decades. Besides keeping readers up-to-date with a daily news email briefing, Latin Lawyer content is available online and through a magazine.
Our daily news briefing is a must-have source of information for lawyers practising in the region. Latin Lawyer's independent team of journalists provides news and in-depth analysis of law firm community news and deals and cases, as well as legal and policy developments across the region.
Latin Lawyer is a first port of call for law firm leaders in the region seeking information on management strategy. Thanks to over 20 years of independent research, we produce un-rivalled analysis and surveys of Latin American law firm management and financials. Alongside this, we produce regular league tables, country profiles, interviews and roundtable discussions.
Research and benchmarking
The Latin Lawyer editorial team provides intensive practice area research in the form of the Latin Lawyer 250: Latin America's leading guide to business law firms. This guide provides an annual review of the legal marketplace across multiple Latin American jurisdictions, complete with analysis of the Latin American practices of international law firms.
Complementary to the Latin Lawyer 250, our flagship guide, we also publish Latin Lawyer National. This includes firms that provide cost-effective repeat services alongside those concentrating on high-value strategic advice and covers a wider range of cities and states. The guide serves as a key tool for in-house counsel, who increasingly require multiple legal service providers.
Latin Lawyer also annually publishes the Latin Lawyer Elite, a group of around 40 firms in the region, who are the leaders in their markets not only for the work they do but also for the way in which they are led and managed. The leaders of these firms work with us on high-level research and meetings to discuss critical issues for the profession.
LACCA provides detailed analysis of the best law firms in the region through LACCA Approved - Latin America's leading private practitioners as voted for by the region's leading corporate counsel. LACCA's Thought Leaders brings together the insight, expertise and wisdom of some of Latin America’s foremost lawyers in a single publication, and comprises those Approved lawyers who obtained the highest number of nominations from corporate counsel and other market sources.
