Rosie Cresswell,

Editor

When Rosie first joined LBR she wrote across all of its publications, but quickly realised her interests lay in Latin America and has remained at Latin Lawyer ever since.

The voice of a rapidly-growing legal market

Latin Lawyer and the Latin American Corporate Counsel Association (LACCA) have been at the heart of the legal community in one of the world’s fastest-growing regions for 20 years. Our comprehensive coverage of the local legal markets, through both published and live content, has made us the go-to resource for information for both private practice and in-house counsel working in Latin America.

Our independent team of journalists provides news and in-depth analysis of community developments and leading deals and cases, as well as legal and policy developments across the region. Latin Lawyer is the hub for law firms, providing key information for partners to stay up-to-date and compete effectively. LACCA meanwhile has become the vital resource for those working in-house or wishing to understand their needs.

Our annual guide to Latin America’s leading business law firms, the Latin Lawyer 250, provides an in-depth review of the strengths, history and culture of leading firms and identifies key players across each country and practice area, supplemented by real-time updates on key deals and matters as they are reported.

We also conduct original research into the key trends affecting the development of the legal community in all its forms and analyse these to provide essential indices to readers to ensure their own strategic success. Salaries, hiring trends, pro bono development, diversity ratios and other data points are collected and analysed to allow readers to assess and check their own business health against their peers.

In addition to our in-house writers, Latin Lawyer collaborates with leading lawyers across the region and globally to provide essential tools and thought leadership content for in-house legal teams and their external legal advisors, bringing together the latest and best approaches in the region’s most important areas of business.

This debate and commentary are also fostered through our series of Latin Lawyer and LACCA events, designed to enable the region’s leading players to explore and challenge new ways of thinking. Our events are opportunities to catch up with old friends and forge new relationships, as well as being occasions on which to learn and to debate the key developments, across the major practice areas.
