Submitting news

Latin Lawyer news submissions

We welcome news from law firms, be it about deals or cases they have worked on or internal news at partner level – for example, a partner promotion or a new lateral hire. Feel free to notify us of any other developments you think may be of interest to our readers, for instance, new legislation.

While we will endeavour to publish news as soon as possible it can take some days before news submitted by firms appears in the briefing. This is due to the fact that we must obtain confirmation from all firms participating in a deal prior to publication and because at certain points during the year we are very busy. We thank you for your patience.

Please submit news through the links below:

People and firm news – e.g. promotions, lateral hires, law firm mergers or splits, new offices, alliances, partner appointments to positions outside of the firm, etc. We report on partner-level hires and promotions, and counsel-level appointments in some cases. We do not report on associate hires. 

New legislation - significant legislative reform, new legislation etc.

All news should be submitted within two weeks of the news becoming public/official in order for us to write about it in the daily news briefing.

Submitting news about deals and cases

Firms can submit deals of any value that are up to six months old at the time of submission. Please click on the option below that best describes your deal. 

M&A deals (mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate reorganisations, hostile takeovers, tender offers, private equity investments etc)

Capital markets deals (debt and equity capital markets deals, IPOs, rights offerings, bond programmes, security offerings, debentures, quotas, public and private placements etc)

Banking and finance deals (loans, credit facilities, structured finance, refinancings, syndicated loans, fundraising etc)

Projects and project finance (project development, project finance, PPPs, infrastructure and energy projects etc)

Restructuring and insolvency (restructuring proceedings, bankruptcy and insolvency etc)

Any other work news – Please submit news about other work your firm has carried out here. This includes litigation, investigations, pro bono and one off cases or transactions across any practice areas, including IP, labour, tax, trade environment etc. We do not report on day-to-day work, or everyday advice such as the incorporation of a new business.

What happens next?

Each time you submit a deal, you will receive an automated confirmation of your submission. We will check for submissions on a daily basis and will be in touch if we need any more information.

Latin Lawyer reserves the right to select the deals that it considers most interesting to readers for individual reporting. That means we do not report individually on every deal or case we receive; we decide which deals and cases to report on by taking into account several factors, including the amount of time that has passed since the last major development in the deal, the value of the deal, its legal complexity, the prominence of parties involved, the rarity of the deal in the jurisdiction it takes place in, and the relevance of the deal to the local market etc. Law firms should submit deals within two weeks of a deal's announcement or closing in order to increase the chances of us reporting on it individually.  

If you have any questions, please email briefing@latinlawyer.com. We check this inbox every day and you are welcome to email us with any questions and follow up on a deal’s status at any time. Of course, you can always email anyone on the team.  

You can read detailed guidelines on how to submit M&A and banking and finance deals using our online system.
