In an announcement on its website this week, Benchmark said:
“The methodology for Benchmark Mexico mirrors Benchmark Canada and Benchmark Litigation. The final product will be informed by six months of rigorous research including extensive interviews with litigators and their clients. During these interviews we examine recent casework handled by the firms and ask sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their local or national practice areas.”
A number of law firms have been invited to submit a questionnaire by April 10 2015, and Benchmark Mexico will be published on May 29 2015.
Benchmark entered the market in 2008 as a US litigation-only directory.
Since then, the publisher – Euromoney’s Legal Media Group – has added a Canadian edition, and a guide covering the leading U.S plaintiff firms, plus a series of other surveys and awards.
In 2013 Benchmark extended its franchise into Asia with the launch of Benchmark Asia-Pacific.
