Chambers USA has been ranking the best lawyers since 1990, and now covers 185 jurisdictions. It ranks lawyers and law firms on several factors and considerations, all of which are investigated by a team of more than 140 full time researchers. Individual lawyers are ranked (in their practice-area(s)) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. Law firm rankings relate to a department of the firm, not to the firm as a whole. Law-firm departments are ranked on the qualities of their lawyers and the effectiveness and capability of the department as a whole – its strength and depth. These factors and considerations are judged by interviews with those active in the market who are mainly clients and other lawyers with whom they work; and by assessing recent work done. Internal meetings are held by researchers, deputy editors and editors to go through the research conducted and to compile and approve the ranking tables.
