We provide tiered rankings of the leading commercial law firms for different jurisdictions, regions, legal markets and practice areas. This online directory offers clients comprehensive information enabling them to select a law firm with whom to co-operate. Every year we spend months carrying out interviews with the clients, independent research and studies of submissions to dig out up-and-coming firms that have already been ranked in the past. Sometimes, firms enjoy tremendous popularity are not highly ranked, and this may be due to a key team’s departure, punishment from authorities, or they may be poorly valued by their vital clients. Law firms also treat our rankings as important sources for strengthening their weak practices. By being able to compare themselves with their competitors, firms banded lower will analyse and try to improve their performance to get better rankings.
Our Leading Individual directory only brings together those highly recognised by their clients and peers to be the leading figures in their specialist areas. We invite thousands of lawyers and legal practitioners to make submissions. Our editors and researchers will interview them and spend months studying the materials. Based on the response we get and our understanding of the legal market, we will rank them in different bands. More and more clients rely on us to establish their own legal panel team.
