Every year Latin Business Chronicle honors 50 lawyers who have made an outstanding achievement to Latin America’s legal field. Our list includes attorneys from both large and smaller boutique firms based in Spain, the United States, the United Kingdom and regionally. Their expertise spans a broad range of subjects, including arbitration, banking, capital markets, energy, mining, M&A’s and taxes.
We honored these attorneys based on a number of criteria, including involvement in recent prominent deals and transactions in Latin America (including those on our ranking of the region’s Top 100 M&As), special focus on Latin America within their firm, a long history of excellence dealing with the region, importance of their law firm in Latin America, and rankings by third parties such as UK-based Chambers and Partners.
These names represent some of the brightest legal minds operating in Latin American business today, and are indispensable to maintaining the strong growth coupled with transparency and rule of law that are so necessary to Latin America’s future.
