This year we are proud to present the first edition of the Who's Who Legal 100: an assessment of the world's top 100 law firms based on our extensive research into the global business law marketplace.
We draw on 17 years of independent research encompassing thousands of hours of interviews with leading lawyers and their clients in over 140 jurisdictions, and hundreds of thousands of votes and recommendations, in order to identify the following 100 firms as the best in the world. Copies of the Who's Who Legal 100 are available to purchase in our online bookshop. Find out more about The Who's Who Legal 100 and our methodology here and read an in-depth analysis of our findings here.
We list firms alphabetically with an explanation of how they came to be selected - we commend them all for assembling remarkable teams of legal talent.
