Welcome to Benchmark Latin America - the definitive guide to the region's leading litigation law firms and lawyers.

Benchmark Litigation has been in the market since 2008. We exclusively cover the litigation and disputes markets and aim to provide law firm and lawyer rankings on the market's most important cases and firm developments.

Research is conducted through extensive interviews with litigators, dispute resolution specialists and their clients to identify the leading litigators and firms. During these interviews, we examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to provide their professional opinions on peers and practitioners within their jurisdiction or practice areas.

As the research progresses our team may introduce additional ranking categories for individual countries, if market feedback is strong enough.
