The guide covers 50 cities and counties in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. London, being the UK’s largest legal market, has the most in-depth coverage.

Areas of Law   We cover over 70 specialist areas of law across the guide. The most developed practice areas, such as Corporate / M&A, Banking & Finance, Employment, Litigation and Real Estate are covered on a city-by-city basis. These cities are grouped by regions, such as South West, Midlands and Yorkshire, so clients can compare firms across a broader geographic area.

We cover specialist areas of law on a UK-wide basis, namely: Asset Finance, Capital Markets, Energy & Natural Resources, Media & Entertainments and Shipping.

Date of Publication   Chambers UK is published annually in October. The ranking tables and commentary, therefore, are fixed at the date of publication for the following 12 months. However, factual information, such as mergers or lawyer-moves, is kept up-to-date on the website throughout the year.
