Rosie Cresswell, Acting Publisher, Latin Lawyer, LACCA


Rosie has been with Latin Lawyer since 2006. She has built up a deep knowledge of the Latin American legal market over the years and enjoys the regular opportunities to visit the region. Rosie studied Business Management and French at Leeds University and went on to obtain an NCTJ Diploma in Journalism after a brief stint in financial public relations. When she first joined Law Business Research she wrote across all of its publications, but quickly realised her interests lay in Latin America and has remained at Latin Lawyer ever since.

Lulu Rumsey, Editor, Latin Lawyer, LACCA


Lulu has written for Latin Lawyer since 2013, when she joined as a trainee reporter. She became editor of Latin Lawyer in 2018 and LACCA in 2019, through which she enjoys following legal developments and trends across the Latin American region in both brands’ daily news briefings, as well as Latin Lawyer’s quarterly magazine. She also hosts Latin Lawyer conferences and roundtables in the US and Latin America. She has a BA in international history from the London School of Economics and a postgraduate diploma in journalism from News Associates. Before joining Latin Lawyer, she worked for a lifestyle magazine.

He has developed a deep understanding of the Latin American legal market over the last 15 years, having devised, edited and launched a legal directory based on client-led intelligence about the top business lawyers in the region for a leading publishing company in the UK. Prior to joining Latin Lawyer, he set up a quarterly magazine focusing on the latest news and trends in the legal market in Latin America for a Madrid-based publisher. Ignacio holds a BA in English from Universidad de Oriente in his native Cuba and has lived in London for 19 years.

Clare Bolton, Publisher, Latin Lawyer and LACCA


Clare Bolton is the publisher of Latin Lawyer and LACCA, and as such brings together the commercial and editorial strategies for both publications. She started at Latin Lawyer in 2005 as a news reporter, later becoming editor of the publication for a number of years. She moved to São Paulo in 2010, and spent five years covering the rapid development of legal markets in the region from there. Her time at the helm of Latin Lawyer has seen the launch of a daily news service, a successful and growing events arm, our sister publication LACCA, and a focused development of content covering strategy and management issues in the legal profession. Before joining Latin Lawyer, she worked for local government in London, and received her degree in English Literature from University College London. She now lives in London with her Brazilian husband, daughter and street dog.
