We cover 77 specialist areas of law, such as Corporate/M&A, Banking & Finance, Employment, Litigation and Real Estate, grouped by regions, such as South West, Midlands and London, so you can easily compare firms across a geographic area.
We also cover specialist areas of law on a UK-wide basis, like Asset Finance, Capital Markets, Energy & Natural Resources, Media & Entertainments and Shipping.

the Extinction Rebellion protests last year as well as the recent demonstrations seen all over the country.

Expanded rankings for Banking & Finance in London, with lower mid-market rankings for both firms and individuals ensuring we provide coverage of all sectors of the market.

Employment London
Enhanced coverage of Employment law in London, with new dedicated tables recognising the expertise of lawyers in the healthcare, industrial relations and third sectors.
