Leading Law Firms

We provide tiered rankings of the leading commercial law firms for different jurisdictions, regions, legal markets and practice areas. This online directory offers clients comprehensive information enabling them to select a law firm with whom to co-operate. Every year we spend months carrying out interviews with the clients, independent research and studies of submissions to dig out up-and-coming firms that have already been ranked in the past. Sometimes, firms enjoy tremendous popularity are not highly ranked, and this may be due to a key team’s departure, punishment from authorities, or they may be poorly valued by their vital clients. Law firms also treat our rankings as important sources for strengthening their weak practices. By being able to compare themselves with their competitors, firms banded lower will analyse and try to improve their performance to get better rankings.




Leading Individuals

Our Leading Individual directory only brings together those highly recognised by their clients and peers to be the leading figures in their specialist areas. We invite thousands of lawyers and legal practitioners to make submissions. Our editors and researchers will interview them and spend months studying the materials. Based on the response we get and our understanding of the legal market, we will rank them in different bands. More and more clients rely on us to establish their own legal panel team.

General Counsel 100

GC 100 aims to award in-house lawyers who have contributed a lot to the development of legal market and are strongly appreciated by lawyers and legal practitioners from firms. GC 100s are usually awarded to those who have extensive experience and understand how to co-operate with lawyers. Every year, we invite lawyers to nominate the best in-house lawyers and publish the final winners after extensive research. Of course, this is also an online dictionary that features an in-depth look at the market’s in-house lawyers.

Submission Form

Submission is a very important process by which law firms provide us with factual information about their departments and their performance. Based on the submission, we will carry out our own independent research by interviewing clients involved in the transactions and deals, peers from other firms and lawyers within their own departments. The submission form consists of two parts. One is a practice form, which is used for submitting high-profile deals and other important information. The other is a referee sheet which allows us to get direct feedback from your clients.
