Latin Lawyer has published its Latin Lawyer 250 analysis for 2019, including its more selective Latin Lawyer Elite group of Firms, which consists of only 42 law firms in the region. Latin Lawyer Elite firms stand above their peers for the attention they give to building strong institutions capable of standing the test of time. Affinitas is delighted to see all four of its member firms form part of this top echelon. No other international firm, network or alliance managed to achieve this result across the countries of the Pacific Alliance. Latin Laywer Elite thus confirms Affinitas’ unique positioning in the region.
In a related article published by Latin Lawyer, Affinitas’ Colombian member firm Gómez-Pinzón was lauded for its approach to leadership and partner succession, highlighting its “Future Leaders” programme that offers training in business and soft skills. Gómez-Pinzón’s managing partner José Luis Suarez is quoted on how the firm tries to involve their future leaders as early as possible in the actual business of a firm, “because it’s very important they understand that to become a partner is to be more than just a good lawyer”.
