The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 125 jurisdictions and bases its research on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers. A series of criteria are used in the rankings, but the practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel are highlighted the most.
