“It is a very promising outlook, with a lot of new and exciting clients,” says Juan Francisco Torres Landa, the head of Hogan Lovells’ Mexico offices, about the outlook for the firm’s business there.
Meanwhile, firm executives are also upbeat on markets like Colombia, Ecuador and Central America, while continuing to do major work in countries like Brazil and Venezuela despite their economic problems.
“The outlook for Latin America is very positive,” says Bruno Ciuffetelli, Co-Head of our Latin America practice.

Mexico is expected to play a key role in the firm’s Latin America business. In July last year, Hogan Lovells decided to merge with BSTL and form Hogan Lovells BSTL, becoming the first international law firm to merge with a large Mexican law firm.
