Chambers and Partners publish the leading guides to the legal profession. The team consists of 100 highly qualified full-time researchers who identify and rank the world`s best lawyers and law firms based on in-depth, objective research. They also hold award ceremonies to honour outstanding practitioners around the world.
Information is acquired though interviews with the worlds-best lawyers and their respective clients worldwide. The organization selects its sources on the basis of:
• submissions put forward by legal practices
• Interviews during the course of research
• Their own existing database resources.
The ranking and editorial comments about lawyers are independent and objective. Inclusion is based solely on the research team’s finding and thus non-one can buy their way in. Each guide offers in-depth analysis of the legal market within a specific region (the UK, Europe, Asia, USA, Latin America), whilst the Global guide offers worldwide coverage, ranking lawyers and law firms with leading international practices. Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best.
