Legal directories

In the UK there are two directories that independently rank UK law firms - Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500. Every year we submit information to the directories then the researchers carry out in-depth face-to-face and telephone interviews with the firms, clients and other professionals. The rankings are released in September/October every year. A summary of the latest rankings are below:
