Latin America Submissions


The forthcoming 2020 edition of The Legal 500 Latin America will expand the depth and breadth of our coverage of the region considerably. Not only will there be over 40 new practice areas across the different countries of the region, as well as a new international practice section (Compliance and investigations), but we are also expanding our “City focus” coverage, both in key jurisdictions – Brazil, Colombia, Mexico – and extra-regionally to key hubs Madrid and Miami. More on these shortly. In the interim, please be sure to review your respective jurisdiction(s) -see the “tiles” below, by country- for the sections that will be researched in your jurisdiction this year.
