What is the best way to include associates in submissions?
We encourage firms to include associates with significant roles in matters in the ‘Other team members’ section on the submission. When associates get enough feedback from market research, researchers will assess their involvement in submissions and assess whether a ranking would be appropriate. Rankings for associates are rarer than those for partners as it can be harder for associates to have a significant presence in submissions, as well as significant feedback from clients. Our research is designed to ensure that associates and other team members are asked about during research, and researchers use this information alongside submissions to determine which associates are performing at an exceptionally high level.
