For more than twenty years, Chambers has published the leading directories of the legal profession. Our reputation is based on the independence and objectivity of our research.
We have more than 130 full-time researchers who interview thousands of lawyers and their clients around the world. This intensive, continuous research identifies the world’s leading lawyers and law firms - those which perform best according to the criteria most valued by clients. No lawyer can buy their way into our rankings.
As a result, our directories - published annually - are known to be the most accurate and the most reliable.
Independent survey shows Chambers in the lead
An independent journal, International In-house Counsel, conducted a survey of over 20,000 in-house counsel from around the world. They were asked: If you use directories to identify law firms/individuals, which one/s do you use?
Their answers gave Chambers an astounding lead.
|Chambers & Partners
|Practical Law Company
|Who's Who Legal

Chambers is a reliable and respected source
The Chambers brand is well-known amongst clients, many of whom are familiar with our research. They know how thorough it is, and therefore trust us as a reliable source.
"I used Chambers to find the lawyer for a major transaction," said one UK chief executive. "I consulted Chambers, did a few background calls with bankers and then cold-called the lawyer in question. Chambers was how they got the work."
The general counsel of a major UK football team remarked to our researchers: "I now rely on Chambers as my primary reference guide. This is because the guidance matches my own experience of particular lawyers and firms."
"In a legal marketing world that is literally awash in gratuitous and duplicative listings, pay-for-plays, unresearched ratings, rankings and scams - over 900 at last count - there are innumerable ways for lawyers and marketing departments to waste their time and money. Amid the confusion and noise, there are only a few islands of sanity and dependability left. Among those, Chambers & Partners stands out for its comprehensive view of the marketplace, depth and quality of research, and commitment to reporting integrity. To be sure, there is time and effort involved in our commitment to Chambers, but this is work that both our attorneys and marketers undertake willingly because Chambers commands clout and credibility with key clients."
