This year we are proud to present the second edition of the Who’s Who Legal 100: an assessment of the world’s top 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 firms as the best in the world. Find out more about the Who’s Who Legal 100 and our methodology here and read an in-depth analysis of our findings here.
This edition boasts three new inclusions, notably Maples and Calder which has performed exceedingly well in our research this year, winning our private funds award and being named the leading firm in the Cayman Islands. Ropes & Gray has also put on a strong performance with 41 listings across 14 chapters, while Schellenberg Wittmer is awarded the accolade of Swiss Law Firm of the Year.
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.
