Chambers Europe ranks the leading lawyers and law firms across Europe. Its legal rankings are based on in-depth analysis and research conducted by the guide’s experienced researchers.
Due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, Chambers Europe recognised that their traditional research methods was inappropriate. Therefore, the editorial team decided to use Spotlight rankings for firms and individuals already included in previous editions of the guide and focused on their pro-bono efforts. Chambers Europe didn’t rank: Banking and Finance, Energy, Real Estate, Tax, Restructuring and Insolvency, Dispute resolution: White-collar crime.
