The Best Lawyers in Chile™ Awards

We are pleased to share that for 2023, we are honoring 1,058 lawyers in 53 unique specialties. We are also proud to recognize 38 “Lawyer of the Year” awards. "Lawyer of the Year" honors are awarded annually to only one lawyer per practice area in each region with extremely high overall feedback from their peers, making it an exceptional distinction.

A Brief History

From humble beginnings in 1983, Best Lawyers and its creators set out to highlight the most extraordinary lawyers and provide access to unbiased, Purely Pure Review™ legal talent as determined by other lawyers in the field.

Since that day nearly four decades ago, our awards have expanded into 22 global markets and are distributed in some of the top publications worldwide.

To share in this exciting launch of Chile’s 13th edition, we’ve partnered with Diario Financiero.

"Law Firm of the Year" Awards

“Law Firm of the Year” awards recognize a single top firm for its work in a specific legal practice area nationwide. Awards are determined based on a handful of factors including lawyer feedback, the number of lawyers included in Best Lawyers for that firm and practice area, the number of office locations a firm has, historical analysis of the firm’s “Lawyer of the Year” awards, materials submitted by firms and the firm’s overall scope and areas of expertise.
