Guide to the World's Leading Lawyers

The guides for each practice area are updated every two years. Our research process involves sending over 4,000 questionnaires to senior practitioners or in-house counsel involved in each practice area in over 60 jurisdictions, asking them to nominate leading practitioners based on their work and reputation. The results are analysed and screened for firm, network and alliance bias. The list of experts is then discussed and refined with advisers in legal centres worldwide.

Researchers have compiled a list of specialists in 60 jurisdictions for these guides.
