Who Represents Latin America's Biggest Companies 2017?

Which law firms are regularly retained by the region's largest 100 companies? LACCA presents its landmark research.

Introduction

Who represents Latin America's biggest companies?

There has been a shake-up in the region’s biggest 100 companies’ rankings, with Venezuela’s PDVSA and Brazil’s Odebrecht noticeably absent from the list, and while Mexico and Brazil’s state-owned oil and gas enterprises continued to dominate the top spots, it was companies in the energy and retail sectors that saw the biggest rise in profits over the past year. 

Data

Who represents Latin America's biggest companies 2017: the full list

Each year, LACCA conducts detailed research into which law firms represent Latin America’s largest 100 companies, as ranked by revenue. These tables show which companies make up our top 100, and also which law firms represent them, both region-wide and in different jurisdictions.

Analysis

Argentina’s legal landscape

The past year was marked by a flurry of pro-business reforms in Argentina as the government continued its drive to improve market conditions and boost investment, keeping law firms busier than ever.

Strategic resourcing

LACCA's research reveals that GCs across Latin America have been focusing on implementing strategies to curb legal costs over the past year, and while in-house departments continue to rely heavily on external counsel for highly technical matters, or getting to grips with new legislation, they are much more likely to shop around and get the best prices and prefer firms that offer flexible fee arrangements.

We analyse which law firms came out on top of our landmark research into “Who Represents Latin America’s Biggest Companies” and take a look at developments in the legal market across the region.
