Chambers Europe Jurisdictions and Practice Areas

The Chambers Europe Guide covers 53 jurisdictions across Europe, from Greenland, the UK and Ireland in the West to Russia, Turkey and Ukraine in the East in addition to coverage on a Europe-wide and CEE-wide scale.

Chambers Europe Country Focus

In the largest jurisdictions, such as France, Germany, Spain and the UK, we cover many areas of law – about 25 in each. In smaller jurisdictions we usually cover about six areas of law. In the smallest jurisdictions, such as Andorra and Armenia, we cover only one area of law: General Business Law.

Key areas of law, such as Arbitration, Dispute Resolution, and Corporate, are also covered in our ‘Europe-Wide’ rankings and commentary. This Europe-wide coverage focuses on those law firms that operate across the continent. We also have separate 'Central & Eastern Europe' and 'Baltic States' chapters which rank firms that carry out work across those regions.

Chambers Research

Our Europe team is able to conduct interviews in a number of native languages, including German, French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Romanian, Polish, Maltese and Hungarian.
