Over the course of our research, we have identified nearly 300 practitioners in our sports list and more than 230 in our entertainment guide, reflecting those highlighted as leading figures for their expertise – which ranges from handling high-profile international sports arbitration to advising clients on complex regulatory frameworks governing gaming and gambling operations.
WWL does not list firms, only individual practitioners. The leading firms are those in each region whose listed practitioners received the most total nominations in our research.
The Global Elite Thought Leaders are those individuals who received the highest number of nominations from peers, corporate counsel and other market sources this year. Our research has identified them as being truly outstanding practitioners and the very best in their field.
