Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms, is proud to be the exclusive partner and co-organizer of the GC Powerlist United States 2019 - Latin America Specialist Teams.
For 30 years, The Legal 500 has been analyzing the capabilities of law firms across the world, often relying on client feedback to produce an authoritative guide to the best private practice firms and partners. The GC Powerlist series reverses this process, collecting testimony and nominations from hundreds of private practice lawyers to shine a light on the best in-house counsel working in a particular market.
The GC Powerlist US 2019 - Latin America Specialist Teams highlights the best Latin America and Caribbean-focused regional counsel working in the U.S. today. Together with our member firms in Latin America, Lex Mundi applauds and recognizes US legal teams in the in-house community that have shown themselves to be experts in the Latin American market.
Through Lex Mundi’s World Ready Network, our member firms in the region work seamlessly together to offer coordinated, cross-border legal advice to help in-house lawyers focused on Latin America.
