Win and retain business with a Chambers ranking

The Chambers UK guide and legal rankings aid key decision makers looking to buy legal services across the United Kingdom. Our rankings showcase the best firms and lawyers practising in the legal market and are the mark of approval for professionals.  

Chambers research provides the most in-depth analysis and coverage to help clients make informed decisions when looking to instruct for their legal matters.  

A ranking in the Chambers UK guide showcases your excellence in the highly competitive legal market and creates new opportunities to win and retain business.  

The value of a Chambers UK ranking

A recent independent study of over 600 senior legal professionals showed that a Chambers ranking is the most important in the legal market. Over 90% of respondents said a Chambers ranking helped win new business.   

By ranking in the Chambers UK guide, your firm will have access to independently verified client appraisals.  

Successful rankings will also benefit up and coming lawyers as they will feature alongside well-established professionals.

Expanded coverage in the Chambers UK guide 2023

We are simplifying the way in which we ask for submissions for city tables for Family/Matrimonial,  Personal Injury,  Clinical Negligence, Crime and Agriculture & Rural Affairs. In the past we asked for separate submissions for each city (Sheffield, Exeter, Glasgow etc). This year, we are asking for just one submission for each region (Yorkshire, South West, Scotland etc). We will continue to research and rank these areas at a city level, but want to reduce the volume of submissions that regional firms have to provide. 

We will be opening up Family/Matrimonial to submissions for both East Midlands and West Midlands

In Insurance, firms are now able to submit specifically for Insurance: Mainly Policyholder, in additional to the previous categories. 

In London’s Professional Negligence section, we are now accepting submissions for Technology & Construction.  

We have also restructured our Outsourcing research and will now be accepting submissions for IT & Outsourcing in London, as well as in Scotland. We will no longer be accepting submissions for Outsourcing in UK-wide.

We are no longer asking for submissions for Banking Litigation in the Regions (though you may still submit separately for Scotland). Firms outside of London are encouraged to include banking litigation work in their Litigation submissions going forward.  

We will no longer be accepting submissions for Offshore: Trusts in Jersey or Guernsey. Firms should instead submit their trusts work to the High Net Worth guide.  

In Capital Markets we're now asking that you include CLO work on your Securitisation submission. Additionally, Structured Finance has been renamed Structured Products to better reflect the market. 

We now rank firms in Investment Funds for their Investor-side expertise. We are not asking for a specific submission for that area and firms that want to be recognised in that space should submit to Investment funds: Private Equity.
