Chambers USA ranks the top lawyers and law firms across all the United States of America. Law firms that have a national presence are also ranked in our Nationwide tables (which focus on those firms that are the country’s best in their respective areas of practice).
Chambers rankings are assessed by our experienced team of Chambers researchers. Please see our methodology page to find out more. When buying legal services in the USA, Chambers can provide reliable and trusted recommendations to help you make an informed decision.
Chambers USA covers all the states in the USA. We also have regional rankings in a number of states, including New York, California, Pennsylvania and Missouri, with plans to introduce more in the future.
In every state we rank the leading law firms in at least four areas of law: Corporate / Commercial, Labor & Employment, Litigation, and Real Estate. In most states we cover more than four areas of law, so that the guide overall covers over 50 different practice areas /sectors on a state and national level.
Rankings at state-level are based upon the location in which a firm or lawyer practices regardless of where their clients are located or where their deals and cases take place.
Our ranking tables are compiled through assessment of a firm’s work and opinions from external market sources, with an emphasis on client feedback. Firms and lawyers need to demonstrate sustained excellence in order to be ranked in the guide.
