Latin Lawyer Q1 2018
Welcome to our new and improved magazine. As most of our content is read online, Latin Lawyer’s editorial strategy is increasingly digitally-led. That’s why we have upgraded our website and enhanced the online functionality of the Latin Lawyer 250.
But this prompts the question of what place a print magazine has in a virtual world? We’ve concluded there is still room for a physical product and that its value lies in high-quality design as well as good articles. While we continue to publish material for our website daily, the magazine will now be produced quarterly and contain thought-provoking content that is pleasing to the eye.
To kick things off, where better to focus than one of the most talked about, highly sensitive issues in the legal market today: the role the legal profession should play in the fight against corruption. The companies undergoing investigations for wrongdoing are clients of multiple law firms. Are they doing enough to know their customers?
It is our belief that the print edition should provide in-depth analysis of key issues affecting our readers, which is why we have sought the opinions of top practitioners on the legislation that seeks to curb Peru’s corruption problem and a new competition law in Argentina.
Also in this edition, we profile Latin Lawyer’s Elite firms of 2018 and find out how their leaders are planning for the future. The outgoing leader of one such firm is Latin Lawyer’s Law Firm Leader of the Year; Alfredo O’Farrell reflects on his time at the helm of Argentina’s largest firm, Marval, O’Farrell & Mairal.
