In this Elite subsection of the Leading Law Firm Networks section, these rankings focus on the most impressive independent law firm networks.
The chief criterion for a leading legal network, is that the member firms are independent of each other and any controlling entity. A law firm network's ranking in this section, is contingent on the rankings, and the ranking strength, of its member firms across the various Chambers Guides.
For the most part, the network should exist without relying on a central law firm. A strong law firm network positions itself as a cost-effective alternative to an international law firm with many international branches. If effective, the network should help members generate cross-referral work, and that clients benefit from unified solutions when work crosses borders.
Those considered here demonstrate an added value beyond the impressive membership statistics. This is established either through affirmative feedback from the members, or evidence provided in a submission document.
