LACCA Thought Leaders

It gives me great pleasure to present the first edition of LACCA: Thought Leaders, which brings together the insight, expertise and wisdom of some of Latin America’s foremost lawyers in a single publication. Through hundreds of votes and nominations in the course of our research, the market has identified the lawyers in the following pages as being among the very best in their field, without exception. Their names are ubiquitous in their own legal spheres and, in many cases, transcend them.

The frequent feedback from LACCA members at meetings and elsewhere is that finding trustworthy, consistently good counsel in Latin America is still difficult. Thus, LACCA launched our Approved lawyers, who are lawyers from private practice who have been personally recommended by our members, the top general counsel from around the region. Within that selection of Approved lawyers, only those listed lawyers who obtained the highest number of nominations from corporate counsel and other market sources in our most recent research cycle were considered. Indeed, the individuals invited to participate in LACCA: Thought Leaders 2018 comprise just the top 3 per cent of all the lawyers considered for inclusion across the region.

Through interviews with the practitioners themselves, our Thought Leaders guide aims to shine a light on what makes these lawyers the apogee of the profession. They are worthy of special mention owing not only to their expertise and experience advising on some of the region’s most significant and cutting-edge legal matters, but also their ability to innovate, inspire, and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients. Their experience and understanding of the legal world as a whole, not to mention their unique insights into their own areas of expertise, will no doubt be illuminating and instructive to a wide spectrum of readers – whether clients, corporate counsel, established practitioners, those starting out in the law or simply anyone with an interest in the practice of law at the very highest level.

I would like to thank the participants who gave up their valuable time to answer our questions and make the publication possible. It is rare to have so much legal expertise concentrated in one place and we hope you will agree that their responses make fascinating reading.
