Full contact details are provided for all firms listed.

In compiling the contents of The Legal 500 Series, independent experienced researchers interview over 10,000 lawyers and around 250,000 client references were taken up. The research is worked into a detailed text, providing a thorough review of the strengths and capabilities of law firms across the numerous legal practice specialisms in the region (covering Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela).
