Independent surveys shows Chambers in the lead
International In-house Counsel, an independent journal, 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 do you use?”
- Chambers & Partners51%
- Legal 50022%
- Practical Law Company7%
- Who's Who Legal6%
These figures were reproduced from the International In-house Counsel Journal, an independent publication.
We rank both lawyers and law firms based on the research of more than 170 full-time editors and researchers employed at our head office in London.
We talk to lawyers and clients all the year round, conducting in-depth telephone interviews.
Many of our researchers are multi-lingual. All are trained in the techniques of investigative research.
The client's guide
"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 and 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."
