Why are the Chambers Rankings Important?

Chambers and Partners is recognized as the worldwide leader in legal performance insights, and their rankings are considered the gold standard for firms and attorneys in more than 200 jurisdictions.

As an independent research group, the Chambers rankings are widely considered to be both objective and highly selective.
