Please note: Referees submitted by the deadline can still be contacted in the normal way (an email survey from L500), but firms can instead choose to directly contact their own referees, using using survey links provided by us, thus ensuring that each and every referee has the opportunity to provide feedback. You can read more about this on our FAQ page.

To send your submissions to us, please visit submissions.legal500.com and follow the onscreen prompts to send us new documents.

Login details have been sent to all firms – if you have not received your login or have problems accessing submissions.legal500.com, please get in touch via our FAQ page using the ‘Submissions Log In’ tab.
