The Chambers Global Guide ranks the top lawyers and law firms in over 200 jurisdictions across the world. Our rankings are based on the in-depth research of our dedicated and experienced team of researchers. Please see our methodology page if you would like to find out more. Chambers Global provides reliable recommendations, to ensure you are able to make an informed decision when purchasing legal services.
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. Facilitated by our team of experienced researchers, we also recognise the firms best placed to handle complex international mandates in our dedicated International & Cross-Border Capabilities tables.
