Since 1999, Chambers has been researching the US legal profession, identifying the leading lawyers and law firms through interviews with thousands of lawyers and their clients. Their reputation is based on the independence and objectivity of their research.
Their methodology for the research into the strengths and reputations of law firms and individuals has been approved by the British Market Research Bureau. They speak to a vast range of lawyers and their clients. Greater weighting 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 un-attributed.
Sources are selected on the basis of:
- - submissions put forward by legal practices
- - interviews during the course of research
- - our own database resources.
