Latin Lawyer 250 Performance Index is built upon data from the Latin Lawyer 250 dating back to 2020, the year in which we expanded our analysis of the Latin American legal market and introduced an additional ranking.

The tool reflects the three rankings in the Latin Lawyer 250: Elite, Highly Recommended and Recommended. These rankings have been introduced to the guide and rolled out into specific jurisdictions over time and this bears out in the tool. For example, the Recommended tier was initially launched as Latin Lawyer National in 2020 in six jurisdictions and later introduced to other markets, while an Elite tier was introduced to the international chapter in 2024. As such, the “Recommended ranking” does not appear for all jurisdictions in 2020, while it is not possible to search for “Elite” international firms prior to 2024, despite there being firms of that caliber in the chapter.

The tool allows users to compare data between all editions since 2020. Note the absence of a 2022 edition, which is due to the naming convention being changed to align with a new publication date, rather than there not being an edition that year. It is also notable that a small number of work areas were dropped from our analysis in 2021, which will be a contributing factor in the reduction of featured work areas for some firms.

The gender diversity graphs are drawn from data submitted by firms that took part in that stage of the Latin Lawyer 250 research process, rather than from every firm featured in the guide. We acknowledge that the categories provided do not fully reflect the full diversity of genders people identify with. We are reviewing this question for future research to ensure it better reflects the diversity of genders within firms.
