Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. Their methodology is designed to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Lawyer of the Year is awarded to individual lawyers with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one lawyer is recognized as the "Lawyer of the Year" for each specialty and location.

Also this year the prestigious international publication Chambers & Partners recognized 23 McV attorneys as Leaders in their Field in their Latin America 2021 Edition. They were selected based primarily on peer and client interviews and ranked according to technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities valued by clients. This year Samuel T. Céspedes, Jr. and Anita Montaner-Sevillano were promoted to Band 1, the highest ranking assigned by Chambers.
