During this session, Editors Robinson Redmond and Joanna Lane were joined by deputy editors Ollie Dimsdale, Joe Jackson and Nisha Sawon to discuss key findings from their research this year, current trends in the market, and the exciting expansion of their coverage across the world.

Guide Coverage

Our in-depth research runs from March to October. As well as covering many areas of law across key jurisdictions worldwide, the Global Guide also includes rankings at a regional and global-wide level.

New sections: adapting to new realities

Chambers supports its employees as they continue to interact with a law firm and in-house counsel by way of regular outreach and training programmes, including the INSPIRE committee, which creates the foundation for our internal D&I network.

Trends and developments in Africa
and The Middle East

The impact of COVID-19 in Africa and the Middle East has been quite varied. However, as with elsewhere, aviation and hospitality sectors suffered, with the lowering of oil prices affecting jurisdictions in both regions.

Trends and developments in Israel
and Caribbean and Offshore

In Israel, the fast-paced vaccine rollout has had a positive impact on the re-opening of the country’s economy, with its well-established tech sector adapting to the technological needs of, for example, working from home. The Caribbean has seen a notable reduction in tourism, with offshore work subject to increased regulatory scrutiny of late.
