The International Law Office, with the support of the Association of Corporate Counsel, has conducted in-depth analysis of in-house lawyers and legal departments worldwide for the inaugural Latin American Counsel Awards. Over 3,300 individual nominations from corporate counsel and law firm partners make the Latin American Counsel Awards unique in clearly identifying those in-house counsel, both teams and individuals, who excel in their specific roles. Our primary aim is to recognise lawyers for demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of in-house responsibility, not simply those who have acted on high-profile transactions.
The winners were announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremony in Buenos Aires on Wednesday February 16 2011. The press release is available here.
