The Latin American Corporate Counsel Association brings together leading in-house counsel working in the region, affording them the opportunity to interact, share ideas and best practice, and network with peers across Latin America.

Once a year, LACCA members are asked to nominate their preferred external counsel in Latin America for specific areas of law. Only members – who are all leading in-house counsel – are eligible to vote. Any lawyer working full-time for a company, and working with Latin America, is eligible to join LACCA and thus participate in the research.

In the research process, nominations from members are verified, counted and weighted, with the region’s biggest buyers of legal services given more prominence in the process. Private practitioners are then selected for inclusion and listed by practice area and by country on our website
