Chambers and Partners have published guides to the legal profession since 1990.

How CHAMBERS and Partners rank lawyers and law firms

We rank lawyers and law firms on several factors and considerations, all of which are investigated by our large team of more than 170 researchers. They are employed full-time in our central London office and work throughout the year contacting lawyers and clients direct by telephone and email.  A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm, not to the firm as a whole.  Where a firm has several departments specializing in different areas of law, we may rank some departments and not others. (A ranking will only apply to a law firm as a whole where the firm specializes in just one practice area). Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client. Read more
