Chambers & Partners, the UK-based publishers of Chambers USA, conducts research through in-depth interviews with attorneys and clients and then assesses those results via a team of more than 140 full-time researchers and editors.
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. A law firm ranking relates to a department of the firm, not to the firm as a whole. Where a firm has several departments specializing in different areas of law, Chambers may rank some departments and not others. Law firm departments are ranked on the qualities of their lawyers as above. In addition, Chambers considers the effectiveness and capability of the department as a whole—its strength and depth. These factors and considerations are judged: (a) by interviews with those active in the market—mainly clients (who can be law firms instructing other law firms) and other lawyers with whom they work; and (b) by assessing recent work done. Greater weight is given to the views of the clients, and any biased viewpoints tend to cancel each other out. All interviews are conducted purely for research purposes and are entirely confidential and unattributed. The methodology for the research into the strengths and reputations of U.S. attorneys has been approved by the British Market Research Bureau.
The rankings and editorial comments concerning the attorneys are independent and objective. Inclusion in the guide is based solely on the research team’s findings. Chambers is widely viewed among the most highly respected publications in the world with regards to rating lawyers, in part because inclusion cannot be purchased.
