The Legal 500 United Kingdom 2020 rankings are now online. Please use the left-hand menu to navigate through the practice areas.

Welcome to the home page for The Legal 500 United Kingdom – the leading guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK. More than four million users visit The Legal 500 website each year and this guide offers those buying legal services in the UK, reliable and up-to-date information on law firms.

These rankings reflect detailed analysis of law firm submissions and thousands of interviews with GCs and private practice lawyers, conducted by our team of experienced researchers in accordance with our guidelines.

In addition to ranking law firms and listing leading individuals by location and practice area to help in-house counsel make an informed choice, the guide also allows law firms to benchmark their own performance against their peers. Every firm ranked – and individual mentioned – in the UK Legal 500 UK Solicitors guide is ‘recommended’.

As the UK editor I would welcome your feedback and ideas about how we can bring the rankings to life throughout the year and ensure that they reflect a changing UK legal market, where diversity, value for money and the ability to make informed decisions are more important than ever.

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