Legal 500 just announced the deadlines for its Latin America 2017 edition. This edition will cover nearly 200 country-specific practice areas and sub-areas, as well as practice areas for international firms.

Editorial submissions and client referees are due Friday, February 10, 2017.  Researcher information will be published following the February deadline.

Legal 500 will allow an extension for late referees (not editorial submissions) up to February 17, 2017. There is a downside to being late, however. Referees received between February 10 and 17 “will be treated as ‘late referees’ and will be contacted at a slightly later date,” says the editor.

If you are a LexLists client already, please log in to your LexLists account for a complete list of practice areas and submission instructions. Otherwise, peruse the Legal 500 website for further information and country-specific client referee spreadsheet templates.
