The Legal 500 by country

For 28 years, The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world, with a comprehensive research programme revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market. The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 100 jurisdictions, the results of which can be viewed free of charge using the "Rankings" tab at the top of the page.

The rankings are based on a series of criteria, but simply put, we highlight the practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel. Our research is based on feedback from 250,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and a team of researchers who have unrivalled experience in the legal market.

The Legal 500 produces a wide ranging series of resources for in-house lawyers including roundtables, client insight reports, and recognises and rewards the best in-house lawyers through our GC Powerlist series and The Legal 500 Awards. Please use the tabs at the top of the screen to find out more.
