About Who's Who Legal

Since 1996 Who's Who Legal has identified the foremost legal practitioners in multiple areas of business law. In total, this site features over 17,000 of the world's leading private practice lawyers from over 100 national jurisdictions. We pride ourselves on the integrity and authority of our findings. It is impossible to buy entry into this publication.

Our service is designed to reduce the short-term costs incurred in finding a lawyer, but more significantly to minimise the transactional expense and risk of receiving poor counsel. We act as a reference source for companies seeking to corroborate the reputations of expert lawyers recommended by another party. However, because referrals are often lateral, we also aim to create a network among the lawyers listed, who will know the ablest lawyers in their own practice area, but may not be so familiar with other fields and countries in interdisciplinary and international transactions.

Following the success of the international publications Who's Who Legal also publishes a series of special reports. These go into greater depth in local markets identifying the leading individuals across a number of practice areas, as well as providing further in-depth editorial analysis of each area and a breakdown of the leading firms overall. is updated on a daily basis to reflect developments in an increasingly volatile marketplace. We would welcome any feedback that you may have.
