Legal 500 Law Firm Rankings

The Lex 100The Student`s Guide for the UK`s Leading Law Firms India`s dynamic and rapidly changing legal market is adapting to the global economic and social challenges of our time in areas ranging from labour regulation to data protection and foreign investment. On the corporate front, transactions in the healthcare and technology sectors, and e-commerce in particular, are growing rapidly. Investment activity to and from India is high. With money to spend, private equity and venture capital companies and funds are actively seeking investment in India, partly due to opportunities where Indian companies are struggling. In addition, many international companies around the world have undergone restructuring, which affects their Indian subsidiaries. Our team of experienced researchers, which includes both qualified journalists and lawyers, conducts intensive market research several months a year. The main source of our information is the law firms themselves, and the information they provide is often not intended for public use. This allows us to properly evaluate them against each other, exercise area by practice area. We also collect feedback from our colleagues and their clients to assess their overall visibility and reputation.

The process results in detailed rankings and editorials that provide legal buyers with an objective analysis of the U.S. market, updated annually. Client research conducted for The Legal 500 consists of two main components and includes qualitative and quantitative analyses. Each year, we write to companies asking them to provide information about their areas of expertise and to ask for specific details about the work done in the previous year (some of which is confidential and not publicly available). This approach gives us a consistent level and standardized data quality, allowing us to compare legal service providers with greater accuracy and security. We conduct personal or telephone interviews with lawyers who specialize in the respective field – usually the department head or designated partner. In addition, we conduct interviews with managing directors, managing and senior partners of law firms and firm managers. This helps us to have a clear picture of the direction and strategy of the company.

The directory section contains business cards issued by companies. These cards contain profiles based on the information of the participating companies. These profiles, approved by the companies before publication, are completely separate and different from the editorial staff. Business cards are designed for management consultants who want to learn more about the practice of a law firm. These rankings reflect the results of a detailed analysis of law firm filings and thousands of interviews with CCs and lawyers conducted by our team of experienced researchers in accordance with our guidelines. This provides an easy one-stop shop for business consultants and legal procurement services to gather information about the companies they want to hire.

The Legal 500 is divided into two different parts: the editorial part and the directory part.

The editorial part is a mixture of factual information and commentary. This commentary consists of a general overview of companies that do what types of work and which companies are generally considered “reputable” by their clients and colleagues. The editorial is largely based on the combined opinions of the many corporate counsel and law firms who collaborated on research in each area. Accordingly, it is important to understand that editorial lists should not be understood as a definitive statement about law firms, but as a starting point for discussion. Hogan Lovells US LLP`s securities and public company advisory practice is “very knowledgeable about the latest trends in corporate governance.” The team consists of a variety of former senior employees of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and one name to consider in the SEC compliance space is Alan Dye.
