Brazil saw the introduction of a new anti-corruption law earlier this year, which promises to keep the country’s strong and vibrant bar rather busy if it’s enforced as vigorously as the government initially promised. Mexico too, is bolstering many of its laws, although the country’s anti-corruption enforcers have some way to go before they catch up with its antitrust authority. Elsewhere, firms across the region are responding to the increasing number of investigations that cross Latin American soil.

A good time, then, for GIR’s Latin America special. In May, we reported from the IBA’s Anti-Corruption Conference in Mexico City. With some help from our colleagues at GIR’s sister publication Latin Lawyer we’ve compiled a comprehensive overview of specialists in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela.

Elsewhere, we introduce a new feature, our Investigator’s Guides. Here we aim to provide counsel a snapshot of the legal and cultural issues in jurisdictions around the world that can help or hinder an investigation. In this issue, we take a look at Mexico and Brazil.
