The Legal 500 Asia Pacific


Welcome to The Legal 500 Asia Pacific homepage. Published annually, The Legal 500 Asia Pacific provides unbiased commentary and insight into the legal marketplaces of 18 Asia Pacific jurisdictions. Our researchers carry out extensive research into each jurisdiction, canvassing law firms and contacting 250,000 clients for feedback on the lawyers they instruct. Our readership encompasses sophisticated users of legal services who are engaged in inbound and outbound work across the region, and as such value The Legal 500 as a key tool to choosing who to instruct. Law firms also utilise our editorial and rankings to assess their market position, gain insight into their competitors, or when seeking to instruct local counsel in an unfamiliar jurisdiction. If you are interested in taking part, feel free to consult our editorial guidelines found on the website, where you will find a breakdown of the information we ask firms to provide and an explanation of the steps taken during the research process.

If you have feedback on the Legal 500 series of any kind, please do get in touch with our research team at
